Dragon Cricket (Ages 7-11 Wales)
Simon Jones of England

Dragon Cricket is aimed at children between the ages of 7-11 in Wales.

It's played with simplified rules but still gives children a good grasp of the physical and technical skills of the game.

The game is played between two teams of five - one batting, one fielding.

The pitch has two sets of wickets and two markers at the side to run around.

Bowlers bowl the ball under-arm from at least 10m away.

Batters must run around the marker of their choice and back - scoring one run each time they complete the circuit.

The batter is out if the ball is caught, the ball hits the wicket or the batter hits his own wicket.

When all the batters are out the teams change over.
