Male Entrepreneur of the Year

Sponsored by Little Wickets

Read Bio

I am delighted that Little Wickets is sponsoring the Club Hub 2021 Male Entrepreneur of the Year Award. I set up Little Wickets almost a decade ago so I know how hard starting, running & building a new business from scratch is, no matter how good the concept or product is or how well received it is. I look forward to someone, with the same grit and determination that I had to have, being rewarded for their efforts. It takes a lot of hard work, vision and time to succeed, which is why I am also delighted to be offering the right people the opportunity to build their own Little Wickets business success on the back of everything I have learned and built along the way, as we venture into expanding the Little Wickets Family across the UK.

Little Wickets offers Cricket Fun For Kids & Toddlers. Championing Teamwork, Fair Play and Fun. A fantastic way to nurture young Boys & Girls’ physical, emotional & social skills.

More than just learning to bat, bowl and field, Little Wickets sows the seeds for a lifelong passion for sport. ‘The Spirit of Cricket’ is at the heart of everything we do & is delivered by our team of enthusiastic, vetted & experienced coaches.

Little Wickets offers regular weekly sessions, school clubs and curriculum sessions exclusively for the Early Years & Key Stage1 age groups as well as soft-ball holiday activities for pre-schoolers and Primary School aged kids.

Kids have so much fun joining in with the specially crafted warm-up games, skill based activities & soft ball cricket games (built on the ‘FUNdamentals of Movement’) that they don’t even realise the positive life skills they are learning on the way.

Community Business of the Year

Sponsored by Baby Squids

Read Bio

Baby Squids is really excited to be sponsoring an award at the Club Hub Event 2021. The Community Business of the Year award is hugely important to me as I believe that supporting local businesses is a key focus for small businesses especially franchisees. I have found so many networks within the local community have supported me in an abundance of ways. We get involved with many local charities to ensure that we are supporting important local initiatives.

Baby Squids classes are all about having fun in the water, ensuring that parents and children enjoy bonding and experiencing the sensory world of water. From a really young age babies can move in the water the way they can’t on dry land, we support natural development and curiosities with a huge range of activities, songs and exercises. Our Milestones programme combines our understanding of physical development, sensory experiences and social interaction to create classes which parents and children really love. My team of amazing teachers truly love what they do and our customers trust our honest and friendly approach.

I love coaching and working with people and am delighted to be able to do this with the Baby Squids Franchise programme.
