Top Cricketer Leads Masterclass
Boys and girls from the local area were thrilled to have renowned cricketer Dan Housego visit them for a cricket masterclass from Tuesday 10 to Thursday 12 April, organised by Claires Court Holiday Activities.
Guest coach Dan helped the budding cricketers focus on wicket keeping, fielding, grip, stance and bat path, as well as power hitting. Dan was a professional cricketer from 2006 to 2014, representing Middlesex and Gloucestershire, and is now the lead batting coach at Berkshire Cricket Club. In 2009, Dan founded Dan Housego Cricket Coaching to help aspiring young cricketers reach their potential.
Lynne Constantine, from Claires Court Holiday Activities, said:
“We had a great turnout for the masterclass. Events like this inspire so many young people to get involved and we wanted to provide an opportunity for them to experience top class coaching.”
