Cricket Club takes place on Thursday afternoons during the Summer Term for Years 5-6. We play fixtures against other school teams and take part in the Midlands' ISA Championships and the Cheltenham District Primary Schools' Tournament. Matches usually start at 15:45 and consist of 16 overs per side.
The individual skills of batting, bowling and fielding are coached within a smaller environment where we aim to develop good practise into match preparation with early use of tactical awareness.
Airthrie fields both Quik Cricket and Hard Ball Cricket teams. This means that players will have experience of playing with both types of ball, following a range of different rules. Traditional rules are used during the ISA Championships, however the majority of fixtures are played under Taverner's Rules when players bat in pairs for a given number of overs.
In June 2016 Airthrie won the ISA Plate Competition.
