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.
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. During the academic holidays we aim to have Chance to Shine Street venues come together to compete in FREE, friendly and fun competitions.
We have Chance to Shine Street venues in the following areas:
