The summer holidays have started and there are plenty of opportunities to spend them playing cricket locally.
In particular there is the Cricket Scotland 3-day camp at Nunholm, starting on Tuesday the 5th August, which is a repeat of the successful first camp which was held last year.
In the preceding week there is also a camp run by the Council’s Leisure & Sport department, also at Nunholm. The details of these and other local opportunities are listed below. Please book early to avoid being disappointed, and to help the organisers!
