NatWest CricketForce hits new heights

Watch our video and see what plans Witham CC have for NatWest CricketForce

The number of clubs who have registered for NatWest CricketForce 2011 has reached a whopping 1,800 - that's 158 more than the previous record set last year.

That huge total could finish closer to 2,000 as there is still time for clubs to register for the grassroots volunteer event, which runs from 8th-10th April.

CricketForce encourages cricket supporters, their friends and families to give something back to their local community cricket club by volunteering to undertake major renovations to clubhouses and grounds, typically over a special weekend before the start of the cricket season.

We visited Witham Cricket Club who are one of three showcase clubs for NatWest CricketForce. Watch our video in the player above to see what they have planned for the big event. Your club could do the same.
