Schools cricket is vital to the lifeblood of the game and we want to offer the very best opportunity for schools to enthuse and develop their staff and pupils in the sport. We have a number of opportunities schools can get involved with from coaching to competitions to ground tours and match day tickets.

School’s Cricket

The Somerset Cricket Foundation is continually striving to enable more people to play cricket more often, and as part of this we understand the importance of getting the sport played in schools across the County.

Through the support of the Chance to Shine programme we will see an investment of over £70,000 going into schools cricket in Somerset in 2020/21 benefiting many clubs and over 140 schools. There are a number of fantastic opportunities below that both pupils and staff can access.

To receive all the benefits below Schools have to affiliate for just £25.
