sports in the street in Thame high street 23 rd June 6.30. pm



“Sport in the Street” to ignite passion in the local community.


On Friday 23rd June sporting clubs in Thame and the surrounding areas will come together for a “Sport in the Street” event in order to get more of the community involved in sport.


The idea came from Manoj Parmar, and his wife Hema who run MP Cricket Academy in Thame.


“Our lives were completely changed by sport and we want to help others see that sport is a great opportunity to not only improve health, but also create a sense of fellowship and to have fun.”


Parmar himself was a professional cricketer in India before moving to Thame and setting up his business MP Sports.


Last year he and Hema created a “90 Not Out” street cricket event to celebrate The Queen’s 90th Birthday, which gained recognition in the form of a ‘thank you’ note from The Queen herself.


The event was so successful that this year over 15 local sporting clubs can’t wait to be a part of it.


The event will take place in Thame High Street between 6.30pm and 9pm. There will be live demonstrations from the sports clubs, a steel band for entertainment, certificates for children who participate, and free gifts from sporting clubs such as tennis balls and shuttlecocks.


For more information about the Sport in the Street event please email or call Manoj on 07796 987653
