KP Snacks, the Official Team Partner of The Hundred, has installed a new all-weather cricket pitch in Battersea Park as part of its initiative to fund 100 new community cricket pitches across England and Wales over the next three years.

The new pitch was launched at an event in Battersea Park, which was attended by members of the local community and players from The Hundred tournament, including Zac Crawley, Tawanda Muyeye and Maddie Villiers. Coaches from the Surrey Cricket Foundation were on hand to support the event.

 

The initiative forms part of KP Snacks’ ‘Everyone In Campaign’, which aims to champion balanced lifestyles through inspiring and enabling more people to get active and involved with cricket.

The new pitch in Battersea Park is one of four new pitches that have been installed in Wandsworth, with the other sites being Wandsworth Park, Wandsworth Common and King Edwards Playing Field. Five more pitches will be installed in Croydon and Merton in 2023.

The pitches are suitable for all ages and abilities, and will be maintained and run by the respective local council.

The KP Snacks community pitch initiative is expected to have a significant impact on local communities, offering greater access to sport for more people. It reflects KP Snacks’ commitment to investing in local communities to promote healthier lifestyles by facilitating access to sports and encouraging families to become more physically active.

This initiative is also part of the England and Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB’s) commitment to drive the participation and growth of the game.

The new pitch in Battersea Park is a welcome addition to the local community, and is sure to provide hours of enjoyment for cricketers of all ages and abilities.
