Disability Cricket

One of the great things about cricket is it’s adaptability to meet the needs of all participants. Our partnerships with Lord’s Taverners, Beyond Boundaries and the ECB, allow us to offer more opportunities than ever for dedicated disability cricket activity throughout Scotland.

Disability Cricket Champion Clubs

Cricket is a game that unites communities and improves lives. Cricket Scotland want every individual and community to be united by the feeling that cricket is a game for them.

With the support of the ECB and our sponsors Beyond Boundaries, the Disability Cricket Champion Clubs programme support cricket clubs to create or develop playing opportunities for disabled people. Champion Clubs receive support to welcome individuals with different needs and varying abilities to become valued members of their club – celebrating that the game of cricket has something to offer everyone.

To get more information or to apply to become a Champion Club please contact Barry McGeachy – barrymcgeachy@cricketscotland.com

Our Enhanced Provision All Stars Cricket program provides a fantastic first experience for all ASN Primary School children, where they’re guaranteed 8 weeks of jam-packed fun, activity and skills development. In partnership with the ECB it is designed to introduce children to sport, teaching them new skills and helping them build strong social skills while having a great time.

Partnering with local businesses & community groups we offer this as a free to cost program for each child, ensuring they receive the same experience as their mainstream peers. Each School that registers as a centre receives a full equipment bag and every child registered will receive a backpack full of goodies, Cricket Bat, Cricket Ball and Personalised T-shirt.
