Whilst we await the return of cricket hopefully some of you have been enjoying the opportunity to get outside and have a net. For many people, the void of cricket in their lives is something we are all missing.
Therefore, the Hampshire Cricket Board is launching Hants Learning Month for the month of June; with plenty of courses available to keep you occupied until cricket hopefully returns!
There are a wide range of courses available, including:
- Level 1 Groundsmanship - just £25*
- Level 1 Umpiring - FREE
- Introductory Scoring and Introductory Umpiring - FREE
- Google Digital Garage - FREE (three courses: marketing strategy, advertising, increasing your reach online)
For more information, please visit the HCB's Online Learning page below:
As part of Hants Learning Month, the HCB are also showing our appreciation for the key people in local cricket. Complete the very brief form(s) below and they will say a huge thank you on their social media channels each Friday of June.
