Surrey CCC have launched the Lycamobile Cup – a countywide Kwik Cricket competition that will culminate with twelve teams competing for the trophy at the Kia Oval.
Throughout the summer, over 4,000 children will take part with competitions being run in eighteen different boroughs throughout south London and Surrey.
Competitions take part in all regions of the area covered by the Surrey Cricket Foundation, from the London Borough of Lambeth in the north to Waverley in the south and Tandridge in east Surrey across to Surrey Heath in the west of the county.
Each region will stage a Finals Day of its own, with the Lambeth Finals Day held at the Kennington Park Astroturf last week – with the children inspired by the presence of attendance of Surrey fast bowler Chris Tremlett.

Speaking at the event Tremlett said: “It’s always nice to come down to these things and great to see so many kids getting involved! I remember what it was like when I was there age and I was always very excited to get out school and play in stuff like this!”
The winners of each Finals Day progress to a competition held at Epsom College in mid June with the six best boys and girls teams from the day in Epsom qualifying for the big Finals Day at the Kia Oval on Monday June 22nd.
The competition is sponsored by Lycamobile, who are in the second year of sponsoring Surrey CCC – and have added the Kwik Cricket element for the first time in 2015.
Omar Khan, Global Head of Sponsorship at Lycamobile, added: “This is a wonderful addition to our sponsorship this year. The Lycamobile Cup with the winners being able to play at the Kia Oval – amazing!”
