It’s passion for cricket that underpins everything we do at Cricket Deal Direct, which is why we are such active supporters of women’s cricket as well as the junior game. CDD is proud to sponsor the Fred Trueman Cricket League which was established in 2005 to honour the memory of the legendary Fred Trueman, with the aim of promoting cricket in state schools throughout England.

If we share our passion with juniors, then we know there is always going to be a future for cricket

How to make your hobby pay for itself

By , February 6, 2016 12:08 pm

If you’re passionate about cricket, and want to play as much as possible, there may be times when you look at the overall cost of your hobby and wish there was a way of making some extra money to cover it. Now there is.

All you need is enthusiasm for cricket and the ability to talk to other members in your club, and you can become a Club Champion for Cricket Deal Direct to promote their great brand of SM bats and cricket gear. SM is a fast growing range of cricket equipment, which Cricket Deal Direct imports directly from the manufacturer to cut out the middle man to offer high quality products at discount prices.

As well as all the cricket gear you would expect to find, Cricket Deal Direct also has an impressive range of women’s kit designed by women for women called The Heather Knight Collection, with the full support of England Vice Captain, Heather Knight.

There’s also superb products for coaches and juniors, as well as great value outdoor cricket equipment.


It won’t take up much of your time, and the only up-front cost is a small outlay towards the cost of a sample kit for you to use, which you will easily recoup with your first order. Everything you then earn throughout the year will be yours to keep, which you can use to pay for your hobby.

To find out more about becoming a Club Champion for your club, call Ian Anderson, the Managing Director of Cricket Deal Direct for an informal chat on 01778 345618 or 07711 681136 .
