We’re excited to announce that we’ll be part of a multi-million pound project – the redevelopment of Park Avenue cricket ground in Bradford.
The site redevelopment will include a brand new eight-lane netting facility where local cricketers can net free of charge, and we’ve signed a three-year agreement to support them with this.
Park Avenue wants to get back on the cricketing map, having previously hosted 306 First Class and 48 List A Matches, thereby establishing itself as a staple venue in the cricketing calendar.
We’re proud to support this redevelopment project which will give Bradford national recognition for using cricket as a positive vehicle for social inclusion.
Andy Dawson, The Yorkshire County Cricket Club Commercial Director, said “We are currently looking for people with a huge passion for cricket in the Yorkshire area to support with funding, ensuring that cricket facilities are accessible for the Bradford community. All funding will be used to ensure the facilities stay open for community use.”
Free access to cricket nets is something that the Parklane Group are delighted to be supporting and the facility will especially benefit the local young people of Bradford.
Naveen Ahmed, the Parklane Group Director, says “This support comes through our Parklane Foundation. The Parklane Group has, at its heart, values which support social inclusion, and I believe becoming a partner of Park Avenue is a fantastic way for The Parklane Group to promote these values.”
