Key Stage 1 Fun Hits Beckenham!

Tuesday 12th March 2024

Following the success of Bromley’s 2023 KS2 skill festivals, on Monday the County Ground at Beckenham played host to the first Bromley KS1 skill festival, an event open to all the borough’s primary schools.

The eight stations around the hall tested the skills of teams with favourite games including Catching Comets, Fast Fielders and the popular Visually Impaired Cricket Challenge.
As can be seen in the gallery below, a fantastic time was had by all the players and teachers!

Kent’s Community Officer, Iain Ager, is very proud of the time, effort and commitment that Bromley primaries have made to cricket since the pandemic, he said:

‘Now is a fantastic time to bring this Key Stage One Festival to the borough. Along with October’s KS2 festival, the winter SEN festival and the excellent Bromley Primary School Cricket Championship, Bromley’s primary schools now have a comprehensive offering of county-supported competitive activities for their players at all levels and ages.

‘That we have achieved so much in 3 years is thanks to the commitment and passion of a large number of young players, teachers, parents and guardians in the borough, and Kent want them to know that it is greatly appreciated, that we are here for them and that we will continue helping them develop and celebrate primary-age cricket.’

With KS1 cricket in Bromley continuing to grow with the rolling out of Rapid Fire tournaments, Kent’s competition format for the age group, the future for Bromley cricket is not only bright, but it also looks like fun.
