UPDATE: Activities Suspended until further notice

COVID-19 UPDATE

Regretfully, all Platform Cricket activities are currently suspended.


This comes in light of the UK Government's closure of schools and leisure centres, and following the ECB's suspension of all cricket.


We hope to be back up and running as soon as possible. For now, please take all precautions to remain safe & healthy.
