Students from the Sports Development and Coaching degree from the University of Lincoln ran a six week Easy Cricket programme.
As part of their Sociological Issues in Sports Development module, the students had to organise, deliver and evaluate an intervention aimed at adult inclusion. The project was run by the students with the guidance of the senior lecturers and Lincolnshire County Cricket Board staff. The group’s rationale was based around the idea of lunchtime cricket, where participants would come and have a game during their lunch break.
Over the six weeks 48 people attended.
Adam Evans, Lecturer in Sociology of Sport at the University, said: “It's great to see inclusive sport flourish at the university, and one of our key goals is to design and implement projects that overcome social inequality among groups including people who are less physically active, young people, women, people with disabilities and older adults."
The University and Lincolnshire Cricket will be working closely to organise future Easy Cricket projects.
