Club Webinars Dates Confirmed

huddle 

The start of the season may not have been what was hoped for but the focus has shifted on to the health and well-being of individuals and our communities. A positive reflection is to look at the great things that our clubs and cricket are doing to engage with players and the wider game.

This is a chance to continue creating exciting opportunities, which enhance your club’s profile, help the local community and provides a key part in the success of Essex Cricket.

A series of webinars have been organised using conferencing platform, Zoom to share thoughts from different areas of Essex Cricket. We ask you to reflect on these and think about the one thing we can do now to help grow and sustain your club while enhancing your community tomorrow.

Special thanks to Club Partner, Wow Hydrate for their support of the webinar series.
