Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) 

We want our communities to say, “I feel part of Sussex Cricket.” 

This vision is central to our Sussex Cricket County Plan and EDI strategy, underpinning our entire culture at Sussex Cricket. 

We are committed to inspiring a passion for cricket across ALL our communities, creating inclusive and welcoming environments for people from all walks of life, regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or belief, physical or neural ability. 

We will strive to achieve our vision by genuinely listening and responding to what we hear. 

We believe we have already made some progress on and off the field, however we will continue to be better, challenging ourselves and each other to be accountable for our actions and behaviours. 


ECB Anti-Discrimination Code of Conduct

We stand against discrimination in all its forms and are committed to ensuring that cricket is a game for everyone. If you have experienced or witnessed discrimination you can report it through the ECB’s website: Any reports will then be triaged by the ECB and investigated by the relevant cricket organisation. 


Sussex Cricket Limited Strategic Plan Update

"In March 2020 Sussex Cricket presented a 5 year County Strategic Plan to the ECB to cover the period 2020-2024 which is the period of the new County Partnership Agreement between  the ECB and the First Class Counties. 

“This follows the work to produce the ECB 5 year Strategic Plan ‘Inspiring Generations’. 

An executive summary of the plan is attached here.”
