Tapeball Cricket

A new cricket-based project has been launched at the Jack Kane Sports Centre – Tapeball.  This is part of the Sportscotland’s Go Live Go Active strategy to “Back to Sport” programme at the site and in conjunction with Cricket Scotland, given the success of Tapeball in the West of Scotland.

Edinburgh Leisure, through Phil Trodden (Sports Development Officer), are providing an hour on a Sunday afternoon to trial a drop-in Tapeball session through March and April.  The session runs from 3.00pm to 4.00pm on Sunday, is £3 per session and is open to players aged 13+.  Players can book as a team or individually by contacting the site.  All equipment is provided as they have the specific tapeball bats on site and support from a “cricket-mad” Leisure attendant who has been taping up balls at every opportunity. The session is open to all with no need for participants to be Edinburgh Leisure members.

The aim is to provide a low-cost opportunity to get people into playing social cricket, whether it be lapsed players looking to rekindle their love of the game or new players who might be a little intimidated to go straight into the club environment. The hope is that any individuals who came to the sessions could then be signposted to clubs in the area if they desired.
