The Cricketer magazine has just published its first guide to the top 50 junior and prep schools for cricket – and we are proud to report that we are on it! The title has been running a guide to the top 100 senior schools for some time, but 2018 is the first time they’ve created a list for junior and prep schools too. The judges pored over entries from more than 350 schools, judging them against an extensive set of criteria. All of the chosen schools, including Beaudesert, were able to demonstrate outstanding facilities, fixture programmes and coaching. The full guide is included with the December issue of the magazine which is now on sale, and will also be available on The Cricketer website from Friday 14th December.
