Family Fun Day 2017

Cricket Derbyshire’s popular Family Fun Day, where youngsters can meet the Derbyshire players, is set to be another fun-filled day – taking place on Saturday 17 June; 10am to 1pm.

The annual FREE family event will once again offer the opportunity for young supporters to meet the Derbyshire first-team squad and enjoy a range of great family entertainment on offer.

Family Fun Day

Saturday 17 June – 10am to 1pm

Doors open at 10am. Entry, parking and all activities on the day are FREE. Visitors should enter through the main 3aaa Pavilion gate; postcode DE21 6DA. The pedestrian gate off Grandstand Road will also be open for local residents.

Family Activities will be available in the Elite Performance Centre car park, while Cricket Activities will take place in the cricket hall.

Visitors can purchase tickets and claim their free NatWest T20 Blast tickets from the Derbyshire CCC tent located by the main Elite Performance Centre entrance.

Food & Drink – and ice creams – will be available on the top floor of the Elite Performance Centre.

The weather forecast is good and it’s going to be hot and sunny throughout the day. Please bring appropriate sun protection and don’t spent too long in the sun. If you’re feeling warm, take some time out on the top floor of the Elite Performance Centre where drink and ice creams will be available.


The 3aaa County Ground will host an enjoyable day for the entire family, which will include fun cricket activities and special coaching clinics with Derbyshire players.

Family activities on the day will include an inflatable assault course, shoot for goal inflatable, giant games, table football and air hockey – all FREE to enjoy.

Qualified coaches, and first team players, will be on hand to lead a number of cricket activities in the indoor cricket hall. These will include small batting, bowling and catching activities, as you get a chance to test your skills – and ask the pros for any tips.

Refreshments will also be available on the day, while Freddie the Falcons will also be around meeting visitors – and he might even take part in a few of the day’s activities too.
