Berkhamsted Cricket Club - Disabilities Cricket

Berkhamsted Cricket Club is proud to be an ECB Disability Cricket Champion Club.

Cricket is an inclusive sport by its nature; a sport that many people play, follow and have a passion for, for life. Across England and Wales, the ECB wish to support cricket clubs to open their gates and deliver cricket opportunities for those with disabilities. The Disability Cricket Champion Club Programme will support cricket clubs through guidance, resource and equipment, enabling them to welcome individuals with additional needs and varying abilities to support them to play, follow, officiate and volunteer. Creating a truly equitable club game and providing fantastic new opportunities for cricketers and for the Champion Clubs.

As part of its 150th Anniversary celebration, the Club is planning to build a number of long-lasting legacies, one of which is to become a hub for disabilities cricket for our town and local area. We have partnered with Egerton-Rothsay School to run some cricket coaching sessions for some of their pupils and will now extend this to reach children aged 8 to 16 years at any local school.

Disability Cricket Coaching sessions are being run at Berkhamsted Cricket Club this summer (2024):
