The Lord’s Taverners Super 1’s first competition of 2020 was held at The Kia Oval on Friday 31st January.

The participants involved all have varying disabilities, this is part of the Super 1’s programme which offers participants between the ages of 11-25 years old the chance to play regular disability cricket throughout the year in their local boroughs.

The format of the day was pairs cricket which enabled all 8 players on each team to have the chance to bat and bowl in the Ken Barrington Indoor Centre at The Kia Oval. Four boroughs from Surrey were involved with Croydon, Southwark, Kingston and Wandsworth all taking part in what was an action packed day of cricket.

After a league stage Kingston and Southwark played off in a final which saw Kingston come out on top. Many of the Kingston team came from St Philips school, where the local sessions run every Thursday after school.

Surrey Cricket Foundation would like to thank all the schools/groups involved, along with the parents and teachers who helped to make it happen on the day.
