The surveys which have now been distributed, will play an important role in providing a greater understanding of key issues which both clubs and players/parents experience and will help guide the collaborative groups in how the design and set-up of each zone takes place. The surveys will be open until Friday 9th Februaryand a reminder will be sent to all clubs and players who haven’t completed the survey on Monday 5th February. We ask players, parents and clubs to look out for the surveys and encourage them to take the time to complete them. The second Back to Club Night for Premier Cricketers in Tuesday 30th January 2018.
