Surrey County Cricket Club would like to invite all schools in Surrey and south London to attend an LV= County Championship match at the Kia Oval entirely free of charge on our annual Schools’ Day, Tuesday 24th June.
Schools’ Day will take place during the third day of Surrey’s four day match with Leicestershire at the Kia Oval. The day’s play will start at 11am and continue until 6pm. Of course though, schools are free to arrive and leave at your convenience between those times.
To enable us to plan numbers, we can offer each school free tickets for up 50 people (including staff and pupils) to attend the game. To help us run the day effectively, we recommend that schools bring one adult member of staff for every 15 pupils you are planning to bring. If you require more tickets than this, please contact us and let us know as soon as possible.
During the day, pupils will be able to watch the match from their seats in the stands and participate in a number of engaging and enjoyable activities that will teach them about cricket and give them the chance to experience the game for themselves in a safe and secure environment. Every pupil will then leave the Kia Oval with a free souvenir of Surrey County Cricket Club – a little something to remember the day by!
In previous years, Schools’ Days have been a great success, with up to 5,000 children having fun whilst they continue to learn. This year, as well as cricketing activities, we are hoping to offer a range of other educational opportunities during the day, staged at different locations around the ground.
If schools would like to join us on this special day, the Club would be grateful if you would e-mail email@example.com as soon as possible so we can provide you with further information. The deadline for ticket applications is 5pm on Friday May 30th.
