England vs New Zealand ODI Sees 500 People Experience Cage Cricket

On Sunday, 14th June 2015, the Cage team provided the opportunity for over 500 people to experience Cage Cricket in the Ageas Bowl’s permanent cage during the England vs New Zealand One Day International. Players ages from 5 to 75 started queuing outside the cage 90 minutes before the start of play, and were still playing after the match had ended – over 10 hours of continuous play.

The team surveyed those that played and were pleased to see that the data outcomes exceeded Cage’s expectations. These included:

  • Nearly 80% were playing Cage Cricket for the first time
  • 97% found the game easy to understand
  • 94% would like to play Cage Cricket again
  • 94% would recommend Cage Cricket
  • 87% would like access to Cage Cricket locally

Simon Young, Cage 4 All’s Managing Director was delighted with how the day went:

To see so many people waiting to take part in Cage throughout the whole day goes to show the wide appeal that Cage Cricket offers. Today we’ve seen families playing as a group, strangers playing as one, friends playing together and even a group dressed as the cast from Avenger’s Assemble! The team have done a superb job engaging everyone regardless of experience and ability. I would like to say a huge thank you to all the team but above all to the 500 people who wanted to experience Cage. We’ve had enquiries from companies for corporate events, from cricket clubs seeking to use Cage as a means of engaging new players, and people interested in setting up local leagues amongst themselves, and that’s without the many schools who have asked if we can help to supply kits to them. As we have always said, experience Cage Cricket once and you’re hooked
