The Chad Valley Wooden Cricket Set is £1.24 at Argos at the moment. Sarah actually featured the cricket set here on PlayPennies just a week ago, but then it was £2.49 – so now it’s even cheaper and a fantastic £3.75 off its original price.
I quite enjoy cricket, and while I wouldn’t sit glued to a five-day match on TV, there’s something extremely energizing about being at a live game, especially when it’s International. I have great memories of playing cricket with my younger siblings on the lawn in front of our house, and thinking back it’s probably a good thing that we used tennis balls instead of proper cricket balls.
Which is what this set from Argos offers too - a wooden bat, wickets, bail, a tennis ball and a tetron bag to keep it all in. The bat is a child’s bat, and the set is suitable from around age 5 and over.
Argos’ delivery is pretty rough at £5.95, so you’d be better off just collecting in store, but at this price, you can buy two sets so you can play a ‘real’ game of cricket.
