The ECB takes its latest step to inspire the next generation of cricket players and fans today with the launch of Dynamos Cricket.

Dynamos will encourage boys and girls aged 8-11 to have fun and fall in love with the game. The programme is designed for children graduating from ECB’s All Stars Cricket programme for 5-8-year olds, but is also designed to welcome those who are new to the game.

Up to 35,000 kids will take part in Dynamos Cricket in their local centres at one of two 6-12-week courses:

Each week, participants will develop new cricketing skills including batting, bowling and fielding. They will have the chance to play a fast-paced and exciting game of countdown cricket – a new format that mirrors The Hundred.

Every child taking part will receive a New Balance Dynamos shirt with their name and number on the back. They will get access to a Dynamos app providing cricket tips, activities and quizzes, alongside skills and tips so that they can practice at home and with their friends as well as receiving packs of Topps Cricket Attax trading cards, featuring some of the best players from The Hundred.

Sharon Eyers, Cricket Participation Manager of Middlesex Cricket, commented:

"We're really excited to be launching our Dynamos programme this year - on the back of what has been a really successful three years of All Stars Cricket.

"With well over 3,000 5-8 year olds getting involved in the 76 All Stars centres around Middlesex last year, we know there's a real appetite for the game across the county, so to be able to provide a platform for those youngsters to stay in the game as they progress and develop, and for new 8 to 11 to begin their pathway journey into cricket is hugely important.

"Offering youngsters the choice between soft-ball, match-play cricket and hard-ball cricket is critical in maintaining interest and is key to us growing participation as youngsters develop at different stages. With the All Stars and Dynamos programmes providing that platform for development and that diversity and choice of format, we're confident that we will continue to be able to grow youth participation within the county.

"This year, in its fourth year, we'll be running almost one hundred All Stars Centres in partnership with our club network in Middlesex and are launching fifty new Dynamos centres in its inaugural year, so with demand growing the launch of the Dynamos programme couldn't be more timely.

"2020 is going to be a really exciting year."
