Residents will be knocked for six in a good way after a new cricket pitch has opened in Seven Kings Park.

Leader of the Council, Councillor Jas Athwal, unveiled the free facilities at Aldborough Road South on Thursday, October 4.

The Green Flag winning open space now boasts an all-weather pitch and nets for cricket enthusiasts to enjoy throughout the year.

If the news didn’t bowl you over, maybe this will - the area has been funded by the London Cricket Trust with help from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) at a cost of £47,000.

Cllr Jas Athwal said: “There is real passion for cricket in our borough and through this project local people of all ages and abilities will have the opportunity to play the game for free and keep healthy at the same time.

“Providing first class sports provision is right at the top of our agenda and I want to say a big thank you to the ECB for providing the funding for these fantastic facilities.”
