Diversity is being invited to the party; inclusion is being asked to dance

Cricket is a game that unites communities and improves lives. We strive to help every individual and community to be united and for all people to feel that cricket is a game for them. The global COVID-19 pandemic has put additional strain on every sinew of the fabric of our society. With no population impacted greater than disabled people. We want to make cricket clubs a place where everyone can attend and be involved, or at least know of a suitable local provision.

Active Alliance Research shows that people with a disability want to increase their activity levels, but struggle to find appropriate opportunities. We also know that those coaches who have not delivered to adults or young people with a disability have low confidence in delivering inclusive sessions.

On Monday 1st November we are keen to begin to address these issues by creating a series of ‘Disability Club Champions’ We want your club to register to become a Bronze, Silver or Gold Champion Club.

On Monday 1st November, join us via zoom from 7pm – 8pm to find out about:

  • How to become a ‘Bronze, Silver or Gold Champion Club’
  • Super 1s inclusive cricket sessions
  • What qualifies players to play for Somerset Disabled and Somerset Visually Impaired Cricket Club
  • ECB Champion Club initiative
  • Supporting club coaches to become more confident to deliver inclusive sessions.
