Surrey CCC would like to invite all schools to attend an LV= County Championship match at the Kia Oval entirely free of charge on our annual Schools’ Day, which will be on Tuesday June 2nd.
Schools’ Day will take place during the third day of Surrey’s four day match with Lancashire at the Kia Oval. The day’s play will start at 11am and continue until 6pm. Schools are free to arrive and leave at their
convenience between those times.
We can offer each school free tickets for up 50 people (including staff and pupils) to attend the game.
To help us run the day effectively, we recommend that schools bring one adult member of staff for every 15 pupils they are planning to bring. If a school requires more tickets than this, please contact us and let us know as we can often accommodate larger requests.
During the day, pupils will be able to watch the match from their seats in the stands and participate in a number of engaging and enjoyable activities that will teach them about cricket and give them the chance to experience the game for themselves in a safe and secure environment.
Every pupil will then leave the Kia Oval with a free souvenir of Surrey County Cricket Club – a little something to remember the day by!
In previous years, Schools’ Days have been a great success, with up to 5,000 children having fun whilst they continue to learn.
As well as a great day’s cricket, last year featured a special assembly given by Sir Trevor McDonald, animals from nearby Vauxhall City Farm and a chance to get autographs from both male and female International cricketers.
The club would love for all schools to join us on this special day and, if you’re interested, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible so we can provide you with further information.
The deadline for ticket applications is 5pm on Friday May 22nd. This year we are also inviting all schools to an afternoon of activities specifically aimed at young female cricketers on Monday May 18th.
This will culminate in a chance to watch Surrey Women play Middlesex Women in the first ever Pemberton Greenish London Cup, a one off T20 match for the right to call yourself the top women’s team in London!
