Cricket Wales - the governing body for the sport in Wales.
We are launching the Welsh section of All Stars; a new UK-wide ECB (England & Wales Cricket Board) initiative for 5-8 years olds - promoting healthy lifestyle and introducing the wonders of cricket to the next generation. This is a really exciting project and we want it to make a massive impact across Wales in 2017 and beyond.
There is tons of fun stuff to get involved with over the coming weeks and - as the programme launches this Friday across Wales - we want to make sure everyone has all the information they need to be a part of it.

Good Luck Miss Pearce and Miss Bracken!
This weekend is the third annual Ten-Y-Fan event and Miss Bracken & Miss Pearce will be attempting this challenge.
The challenge requires them to climb the mountain 10 TIMES in 24 HOURS!
This year the charities that the event is supporting are '2 Wish Upon a Star' and 'Dreams and Wishes'.
We wish them all the best in their attempt and hopefully the weather will be kind and no blisters will hinder their progress!
Good luck also to any parents and children who plan on climbing Pen'Y'Fan too this weekend.
On Saturday 13th May Basketball Wales, Cardiff Met Archers, Tribal Basketball, and Sport Cardiff will be giving 8 to 11-year-olds from Cardiff the opportunity to gain themselves the Basketball Wales Mini Basketball Bronze Award!
