Urban Cricket

npower, in association with the ECB, launched a major consumer cricket promotion in 2006 - Urban Cricket - fronted by England cricket Kevin Pietersen, with the aim of putting 60,000 cricket kits into the hands of youngsters aged 8 - 15 years across the UK.

The principle behind Urban Cricket is simple - the chance to play the game anytime, anywhere. The free kits comprise a plastic bat and tennis ball with tape in an easy to carry case - no rules, no pitch, no teams, just you and your mates.

The focus for 2007 will be the development of Urban Cricket arenas in London, Cardiff, Newcastle, and Birmingham
