King's Named in Top 100 Senior Schools for Cricket
We're delighted to announce that King's College is named in the top 100 cricketing senior schools schools in the country, with King's Hall named in the top 50 prep schools.
From the The Cricketer Schools Guide 2021
The Cricketer has published its 'Schools Guide 2021', featuring the top 100 senior, the top 50 prep/junior, and for the first time, the top 20 all-girls schools in a bumper 148-page supplement at the end of last month.
It follows an exhaustive process which saw a record number of schools submit entries to be included in the guide, despite the ongoing pandemic. All entries were judged against an extensive set of criteria, which included a compelling commitment to cricket in the curriculum, facilities, fixture programmes and coaching.
The Cricketer gathered entries and compiled the leading lists, working alongside former England star Lydia Greenway to select the inaugural top 20 all-girls schools. The Cricketer magazine editor Simon Hughes said: “This year’s 'Schools Guide' is particularly important in showcasing our schools who have kept the game alive through a very challenging summer. Whether it has been remote video sessions, drills in the garden or even Zoom quizzes, schools cricket has emerged resolutely from this pandemic and the appetite to get back out on the playing fields is palpable.
“There should be deserved praise for all the teachers, coaches and volunteers who have put in so much hard work, in the most difficult of circumstances, to preserve a love of the game among the next generation.
“Congratulations to all of the schools included and we look forward to hearing about all of your future successes.”
The 148-page guide is bumper-packed with the December issue of The Cricketer. As well as appearing in print alongside the world’s No.1 cricket magazine, the guide will also be made available on The Cricketer website from Tuesday December 15.
