NatWest CricketForce

NatWest CricketForce is a nationwide initiative aimed at cricket clubs. The programme is designed to bring clubs and local communities closer together, and ensure grounds and facilities are ready for the new season.

CricketForce is held over one designated weekend each year as clubs work to prepare for the upcoming season. Projects range from simple paint jobs, sight screen scrubbing and renewed boundary fencing, to brand new changing rooms, function rooms and even a new pavilion.

NatWest CricketForce 2017 will take place on 1 and 2 April – register your club here to get involved.

By registering your club early, you will receive our monthly newsletters filled with helpful tips and tools to plan for a great event, and you will also be among the first to hear about the 2017 Jewson Privilege Account Scheme.

CricketForce offers the perfect opportunity to engage members of your club who don’t usually get involved and also to attract new members. In addition, reaching out to your local community by approaching new people and businesses for support will help to build a sustainable future for your club.

NatWest CricketForce event resources and advice

Here are a number of useful resources and advice to make your NatWest CricketForce event a success:

  • Step-by-step planner (PDF) – guides you through all of the stages needed to plan and facilitate a great NatWest CricketForce event
  • Volunteer sign-up sheet (PDF) – use this to collect your volunteers’ contact information to keep them up to date on your club’s CricketForce activity and thank them afterwards for their contributions
  • Thank you letter template (MS Word) – use to thank and celebrate the efforts of all of your event volunteers

In addition, all NatWest CricketForce-registered clubs have access to an exclusive online toolkit to help promote your event. You can create personalised posters, flyers and digital banners. For more details please email us at natwestcricketforce@ecb.co.uk.

Health and safety considerations

All clubs taking part in NatWest CricketForce are advised to check their insurance policy for the following:

  • All clubs must have Employer's Liability insurance. As well as covering employees, Employer's Liability insurance is also required for voluntary helpers
  • Ensure the Public Liability and Employer's Liability sections extend to cover the projects/maintenance work being carried out and that there are no conditions/warranties which apply

Under the ECB ExtraCover insurance scheme, as long as clubs have Public Liability insurance, Employer's Liability insurance is automatically included and cover extends to maintenance/alteration work on club premises and playing areas.
