Kwik Cricket

What is Kwik Cricket?

Kwik Cricket is a fully inclusive game where the emphasis is on participation and enjoyment. It is specifically tailored for children up to the age of 11.

Each Kwik Cricket team has eight players (both girls and boys) and bats for eight overs. Games are played with a plastic bat and ball. Although teams are generally eight a side, there are numerous ways in which different-sized groups of children can play Kwik Cricket – any number can play in a match, from two to 32. You simply adapt the game to suit the number of children involved and the available playing time.

Ideas for playing the game

Our introduction to Kwik Cricket and ideas for playing the game PDFs feature lots of advice on hosting Kwik Cricket matches at your school, club or community space.

The competition

The main Kwik Cricket competition is open to state primary and middle schools throughout England and Wales. Independent schools can enter their area competition at the discretion of their County Cricket Board. There are school competitions for Year 6, Year 5 and Year 4.

For further information, please contact your local County Cricket Board or School Games organiser.

There is no national competition for clubs but we encourage you to organise your own local fixtures with other interested clubs.
