At Somerset Cricket Foundation we feel that every child, no matter where they live, should have the opportunity to play cricket. Chance to Shine Street Cricket aims to make cricket accessible to young people who may not want or have the finance for cricket club membership or buying lots of equipment.

Street cricket offers a different way into the sport, with nearly all of the players not having  played or having belonged to traditional cricket club when they join.

At our free sessions, young people play a fast-paced version of the game played with a tapeball – a tennis ball wrapped in electrical tape – in small enclosed spaces. With six players per team and 20 balls per innings, it’s cricket’s answer to five-a-side football.

The projects run after-school or in the evenings, they are completely free, players don’t need to bring any equipment and can wear whatever they like. The sessions run in sports halls, youth clubs, parks and community centres.
