What is the history of Teddy Cricket?
Teddy Cricket is NEW but the concept began in 2002 with the tennis version of the programme, Teddy Tennis.
Teddy Tennis was created to make the process of learning to play tennis to be easy, enjoyable and above all fun for children aged 2 – 5+ years. Teddy Cricket will do the same.
Throughout the development of Teddy Tennis, music and songs were always seen as an integral part of the teaching method, but a key breakthrough came when pictures of the teddy bear characters were combined with original songs into the learning process. The combination of sight and sound, two key human senses has proved to be a very powerful teaching/learning tool, and one that proved to really work.
Teddy Cricket has been successfully trialled at Richmond Cricket Club in West London in July and August 2018. The formal launch of the programme will follow in early Spring 2019.
