We have been asked by The England & Wales Cricket Board to find 10 MN bloggers (ideally with a child aged 5 to 8 but also open to bloggers with a keen interest in kids sport or cricket for children or experience of cricket) to attend the launch of their brand-new, skills based programme called All Stars Cricket and to then review it on their blog. Event is being held in Stratford, London on Monday 20th March, event starts 6.30pm. With regret, no children (it’s a media event).

Here’s what The England & Wales Cricket Board have to say about the programme: “Summer is coming and so is the cricket season…The England & Wales Cricket Board is launching a brand-new, skills based programme called All Stars Cricket, it is aimed at girls and boys aged 5-8. It’s a fun, first-time experience of cricket which develops children’s movement skills. They can learn; catching, throwing, hitting a moving ball and teamwork – all whilst making new friends in a safe and inclusive environment. All Stars Cricket starts in May 2017 and they have over 1,500 centres across the country. It’s an 8-week course and each session lasts one hour. Sessions are run by trained and accredited activators and Mum and Dad are encouraged to take part too, so they can spend some time with the kids. Once children are signed up to All Stars Cricket, they will receive a personalised pack, which includes; a backpack, cricket bat, water bottle, cap and shirt!”

At the launch event you will be able to meet the All Stars Cricket participants, England Cricketers and listen to a launch presentation by the ECB. There will also be a moderated Q&A after the presentation with 2 England players and one of the bloggers (please indicate if you’d be willing to take part in this). Each blogger will be a participant pack to take home!

If you're selected, we’ll ask you to attend the launch event in in Stratford, London on Monday 20th March, event starts 6.30pm (though there’s a chance to meet the players from 5.30pm). Light bites and reception drinks will be served – you are advised to eat before/ afterwards.

If selected, we’d need to receive your blog post in by 31st March, so please only apply if you are around during this time to post and able to attend the event.

Blog posts will then be featured on our widget. The widget appears on c350 blogs across the MN network. To take part you'd also need to have the widget on your blog. We'd need you to include a link to the website in your blog post. You'd need to follow our guidelines for bloggers reviews, which will be sent to you. We'd also like you to tweet your review. Please note, The England & Wales Cricket Board may well use your blog post on their website, on social media as well as possibly elsewhere.

All attending bloggers will be sent a £100 voucher for the store of their choice as a thank you for taking part and will also receive up to £100 in travel costs (refunded by ECB) (a standard, return train ticket to London and tube pass up to the value of £100)

If you'd like to take part please add your details here.
We will be in touch with the selected bloggers asap
