Community Cricket

Through our activities we look to make cricket accessible to all, no matter what type of cricket experience you are looking for. If you are looking to play structured competitive cricket in a weekly league, indoor short-form or on the village green, or at school we are working closely with Sussex clubs and schools to ensure these opportunities exist, and are locally accessible.

We welcome new players to cricket by championing competitive junior, senior, women and girls and disability cricket and success at all levels nationally confirms our recreational game is strong. We also have a variety of cricket offers to encourage more people to the game, It’s not always about competition, or even having the ‘right’ equipment; it’s about getting involved and having fun.

Cricket relies on the contribution and support of volunteers, who keep our clubs running, officiate at matches, coach and develop players of all ages and prepare and keep the grounds we play on. We offer support and training to help these volunteers continue to develop the clubs they love.

Community Cricket Update - 23rd February 2021

“Following the Government’s announcement last night, we are delighted to learn of the potential return of recreational sport from the 29th March. We continue to work closely with the ECB regarding guidance for the upcoming season and will update you all further in due course. We remain positive and optimistic that we will all enjoy a full summer of cricket but, we must continue to remain patient over the coming weeks to ensure the safe return of recreational cricket across all levels of the game.”
