Table Cricket Offer
Our Table Cricket programmes takes place from September through to February half-term, where qualified cricket coaches deliver weekly sessions at your school. The programme is open to both Special Schools and Mainstream SEN, which gives young people with a disability the chance to play the sport we all love.
Our coaching sessions prepare teams to join us at our county Table Cricket competitions, which take places annually in January/February and allow students to put their skills to the test against other schools in a friendly and safe environment. Competition winners have the opportunity to progress to the Lord’s Taverners Regional and National Table Cricket Finals, with the latter taking place at Lords Cricket Ground, the home of cricket.
Alongside the enjoyment of playing the game and competing, table cricket has been shown to develop teamwork and social skills among players. It also helps coordination and cognitive skills. The game is played by young people with both learning and physical disabilities. It enables young people to understand tactics, draw the best out of team players and to build a social life. For the young volunteers involved in coaching and umpiring, table cricket helps to develop self-confidence, leadership skills and enhances their future employment prospects.
