It may seem a way off in snowy January but plans are already afoot for another fantastic Brit Insurance National Cricket Day. To tie in with the upcoming Ashes, this year's National Cricket Day will be on 18th June and will be Australia themed!

National Cricket Day is a day of cricket-themed classroom and playground activities for schools right across the country. It's free to get involved and is open to all schools and cricket clubs.

With the Ashes just round the corner it is an opportunity for schools and clubs to celebrate cricket's greatest rivalry. With that in mind, get your thinking caps on for ideas from the land down under that could include barbeques, beach cricket, kangaroos and didgeridoos!

We're calling on all club managers, coaches and teachers to pencil in Tuesday 18th June for National Cricket Day and to watch out for further details on our website in the coming months including Australia themed lesson plans.

Your school or club can get involved as much or little as you like and make sure you have a g'day mate!
