King’s Delighted to Host ESCA’s West Cricket Festival
This summer, King’s College is delighted to host the English Schools Cricket Association (ESCA) West Cricket Festival.
The festivals, run by Malcolm Broad from the West Cricket Festivals, are an annual event at the school. Throughout the holidays, we open our grounds and facilities to teams from all over the world.
As well as counties within the UK, including Northern Ireland and Guernsey, teams from California, South Africa and Barbados will join us.
The festival has even attracted some notable players over the years. In 2016, international cricketers Freddie Flintoff, and later, Michael Vaughan both came along to support their children who were taking part in the matches. We wonder if any other cricketing stars will be joining us this year...?
King’s has had another strong year of cricket: the U15 team were crowned the South West Regional Champions after winning the U15 T20 County Cup; the 1st XI team won the Woodard Cricket Festival; former pupil-turned-England cricketer Jos Buttler officially opened the new Sports Performance and Cricket Centre, and we announced the launch of our girls’ Somerset Cricket Scholarship.
The festival will commence on Sunday 16 July through to Wednesday 22 August.
