Cricket Namibia is implementing a strategic plan to create awareness, develop and grow the game of cricket in the communities.

Thus, it has decided to support five public schools with portable pitches.

Parkies Primary School is the first school that was handed a portable pitch by Cricket Namibia.

Parkies signed a memorandum of understanding with Cricket Namibia that they are obligated to grow the game of cricket, increase team and player participation in official leagues, participate in FNB mini-cricket and develop the teachers' knowledge and skills by attending coaching courses and workshops annually.

It is said to be important to increase the number of teams and players at the schools to reach the aim of popularising cricket in Namibia.

Cricket Namibia CEO Johan Muller said it is part of Cricket Namibia's new strategy to promote cricket in public schools.

“We aim to increase participation through the provision of a conducive player surface. We believe that this will improve the quality of the cricket played,” Muller said.

“Cricket Namibia will educate the teachers on how to coach cricket as the quality of coaching does have a direct impact on the progress and development of player(s).”

“Schools are partners for Cricket Namibia and one of the strategic ways to increase participation at primary school level is to create awareness of the game.”

Cricket Namibia is embarking on a road show that will start as from 13 November to visit various schools and clubs.

The national men's and women's cricket teams will be part of the road show and this venture will include conducting coaching courses, coaching clinics and FNB Kwata programmes.

Cricket Namibia will hand over the remaining four portable pitches to the schools that the organisation will visit during the road show.
