It’s all about the social…
The ECB are aiming to increase the number of adults (aged 16 and above) playing cricket on a regular basis by encouraging local clubs to host social leagues and competitions.
These can range from soft ball events using the Easy Cricket concept to more familiar hard ball versions of the game.
Whatever the format, the idea is to members of the local community to come and play cricket. Ability is irrelevant – we’d just like people to have a bit of fun! Teams can be made up of work colleagues, friends from the pub or other sports local clubs, with the emphasis being the social element rather than competition.
If you would like to play in a social community league, either as an individual or with a group of friends as a team, please contact your local County Cricket Board development staff, to find details about the league that is local to you.
