Fast-paced and all action cricket!

Somerset Cricket Foundation delivers weekly street cricket sessions at local hubs in Yeovil, Bridgwater, Weston-super-Mare and Taunton. These sessions are free for young people in school years 4 – 7 who traditionally face barriers to getting active and uses cricket as a tool to increase aspirations, mutual respect and enhance relationships with others.

Taking part in street cricket

About the street cricket sessions

The sessions, which are inclusive to people of all backgrounds and abilities, are created so that all equipment is provided and can be played easily to include everyone. The game is a fast-paced version of tape-ball cricket, which uses a tennis ball wrapped in electrical tape instead of a cricket ball. The programme aims to give a new fast, fun feel to cricket that can be played in any contained space indoors or outdoors.

It is not just a sporting project, the program includes workshops run in association with local partners targeting issues affecting specific areas.
