The project, which cost CK Sh2.5 million, will see the number of cricket playing facilities increase from 34 at the end of 2011 to 42.
CK Administration Manager in a statement said that the facilities will be opened this week. Facilities in Nairobi- Highway Secondary will be commissioned tomorrow at 4pm, Baba Dogo and Lenana School will be opened on July 4 at 2pm and 4pm respectively.
Those in Nakuru situated at Menengai Primary and Nakuru Day Secondary will be opened on July 7 at 9am.
“The exercise will see Kenya national team players conduct coaching sessions in various schools in these areas,” said Dafala.
Nairobi Province Cricket Association Secretary and CK Board member, John Moyi, together with development officers will also attend the launch.
According to CK, the unveiling of these facilities now provides a welcome opportunity and platform to play cricket for over 15,000 young players from Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru, Nanyuki, Dol Dol and Kisumu.
“The facilities will provide a level playing surface that will assist in the development of cricket techniques for the youngsters and encourage participation,” said CK.
“These facilities have been constructed to provide unrestricted access not only to the institutions where they have been built on, but also to the neighbouring schools and the community at large,” CK emphasised.
