Junior Cricket at Mistley
Mistley Cricket Club is extremely proud to run one of the most respected junior cricket programmes in the Essex and Suffolk area, thanks in major part to our team of dedicated volunteers. We currently offer over 80 boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 15, of any experience or ability, the opportunity to play cricket. From hitting your first six, bowling your first ball or taking your first catch, to developing your game to successfully crossing the bridge into adult cricket, Mistley can provide you with the right environment and support to enjoy playing this great sport.

The programme is designed to introduce children to the sport, teaching them new skills, helping them make new friends and have a great time doing so. Every child that registers will receive a backpack full of goodies. Your child’s pack will include:
- All Stars Cricket Backpack

Run by our Head of Junior Cricket, Kwik Cricket provides the perfect stepping stone between and hard ball cricket. Kwik Cricket is a fully inclusive format of the game, tailored for children up to the age of 11, where the emphasis is on participation and enjoyment. Played with a plastic bat and soft ball, Kwik Cricket is a great way to start, or continue, playing cricket, where all equipment is provided, so you only need to bring is enthusiasm and love for the game of cricket!

Mistley Academy exists to support junior cricketers in their journey into adult cricket. The Club’s junior coaches will identify a small group of the club’s most promising young swans and invite them to focused training sessions throughout the season.
Through quality coaching and mentoring, Mistley Academy aims to bridge the gap to adult cricket for keen and talented teenage cricketers by creating a fun, supportive environment for young cricketers to harness and develop both their skills and love of the game.
