Well done to Cumbria and Northumberland Asda stores

By The Asda Kwik Cricket team
Hello Kwik Cricketers,

As you probably know, kwik cricket organizers work very closely with community colleagues from Asda stores across the UK to make sure they know where and when they have to go to hand out healthy food and drink to young players and help out with the events.

Asda stores across Durham and Northumberland are not wasting any time and met last week with their local kwik cricket managers to discuss this year's competition and decide on who's going to attend what events. Well done to Mavis from the South Shields store for organizing and coordinating this meeting and for helping those community colleagues who are new to the job and haven't worked on the Asda Kwik Cricket before. Thanks to Mavis we now have dates and venues for Durham and Northumberland kwik cricket festivals, which will be uploaded shortly in 'The Tournament' section for you to have a look at.

Good teamwork everyone!

Hello fellow ASDA Kwik Cricketers

By The Asda Kwik Cricket team

As you all know ASDA Kwik Cricket Competition will be kicking off again soon and as you haven’t heard from us for some time know, we thought we should update you on all the new and exciting things that will happen around the competition this year. 

First of all, we will be making some changes to the actual ASDA Kwik Cricket website you’ve got open right now, giving you more exciting content and opportunities to win truly amazing prizes for your school. Read on to find out more… Implementing these changes should not affect functionality of the website, so don’t worry, you’ll still have access to your tournament information and also to your online teams! If you haven’t got an online team yet make sure that you ask your teacher to set one up for you and have all your mates and mums and dads join in. All your teacher needs to do is click ‘Sign up’ and follow the instructions. Once all your mates are signed up to the website they can easily join your team by clicking ‘Join team’ next to the team’s profile.

Two important things to remember:

1.       Not having an online team = not getting a chance to win one of the 1,000 amazing prizes we have available for you guys this year!

2.       The more members your team has, the better chance of winning!

We have 43 online teams so far so if you think about it, you have a pretty good chance to win if you sign up soon before everyone else does!

This is what you could win:

-          Coaching session from England players – check out Your News section and look for the story about kwik cricketers from Scarning VC Primary in Norfolk who met Steve Finn and Jonathan Trott last year. Yes, these are the same guys you see on TV when watching England cricket team play!

-          Your school could play in front of the massive audience during the Test matches. This is what it feels like to be a professional cricketer!

Randomly selected schools will receive a free ASDA Kwik Cricket kit – so you can practise more and make it to the national finals this year! Kids playing in the national final last year got a chance to meet Graeme Swann and Caroline Atkins. Who knows who’s going to come this year …

Similarly to last year, we will be organizing ASDA Road to the Final again, where selected regional winners from all across the UK will have an ambassador visiting their school to conduct an exclusive coaching session to give them top tips before the big final. It could be your school this year!

The following is probably more relevant to your mums and dads, but if there is anyone at your school or local cricket club who you’d like to say big THANK YOU to for all their time they’ve volunteered for cricket, please let us know at asdakwikcricket@havas-se.com. We will then select the best ones who will become ‘ASDA Volunteers of the Month’. Award winners will receive a certificate and £100 worth of ASDA store vouchers and there will be one winner each month. If you let us know their story and what they have been doing to help develop cricket in your community to and deserve this recognition, we will feature their story on the ASDA Kwik Cricket website too.
