To further develop cricket for all regardless of ability, gender, background or religion
We work in partnership with the Lancashire Cricket Board to increase participation rates across the North West and encourage a new audience to take an interest in cricket. We deliver coaching programmes, tournaments and develop teams with the following groups: Schools, Women and Girls, Minority Ethnic Communities and Disabled People.
Schools Table Cricket
We have delivered two blocks so far this year. One of the schools involved, New Bridge, won our league and then went on to represent the North West at the Lord Taverners Macquarie National Table Cricket Finals.
Each block allows teams to receive three sessions of Table Cricket Coaching, followed by a fourth session which is an inter-school competition. The project allows young people to learn new skills, take part in a sport and allows teachers to learn the rules so they are able to teach other children within their own school.
Both of these offered participants a progressive, fun and educational introduction to starter level cricket. Each week they learnt cricket techniques and how to understand the scoring system. The course also included weekly drills which featured bowling, batting, fielding positions and catching skills.
