Chance to Shine Street

Chance to Shine Street is a national project that aims to inspire young people to access cricket, whilst promoting social cohesion and creating opportunities, in diverse communities. We deliver free cricket sessions in different areas with the aim of using cricket as a tool to increase aspirations, mutual respect and enhance relationships with others, including schools and the wider community.

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.

Playing opportunities

As we grow our Street Cricket Programme, Chance to Shine Street will feature regular competition.  We aim to create teams at each venue to compete in competitions against other teams.
