– About the Camp
The Special Camp and Masterclass was focused on skill assessment of each players individually, then playing a game of cricket in front of Robin and eventually he worked with participants individually to passing tricks and tips to help improve their batting, bowling and fielding skills. What was surprising was that – this camp was attended not only by kids in Houston Texas but also by enthusiastic kids and their parents who came all the way from other states like Arizona, North Carolina and Dallas just to name a few. In fact it was attended by a women cricketer Nina Rowalla. When asked about her experience, she said “ I can’t thank Cricket Huddle enough. This was a great opportunity for kids and adults like myself to interact with someone of the caliber of Robin Singh. I just wish this camp was going to go on for a few more days. Another parent of one of the kids who attended the camp said “ The kids have learnt some good skills and will treasure the golden nuggets they received from Robin in form of his experience and knowledge”.
One day before the camp started – a meet and greet event was organized for Robin hosted by Cricket Huddle and Pepon Digital that was attended by close to 150 people. The banquet hall was overfull and it was an evening – where fans asked questions, took autographs and selfies and had a great time interacting with Robin.
With Houston being one of the cricketing hubs in the US – we really do hope – that more of such cricket events and programs are conducted in Houston and the whole of US so that kids can represent USA in cricket at the highest level.
