Applications Open to Join CricketForce 2016

23 Feb

Cricket Scotland is excited to announce the CricketForce Scheme for 2016.

The CricketForce Scheme is a club-based initiative aimed at rejuvenating Scotland`s cricketing facilities by encouraging cricket supporters, local communities, and their friends and families to volunteer to undertake renovations at their local cricket club in the lead up to the season. The scheme follows in the footsteps of a similar programme run by the ECB that has been hugely successful in promoting the profile of club cricket.

While these club events can take place at any time, Cricket Scotland has announced the weekend of April 2nd and 3rd as the official CricketForce weekend in Scotland.

We are hoping that as many cricket clubs sign up to the event and use it as a great opportunity to prepare their facilities and bring together their membership and communities for the start of the season.

Cricket Scotland will also be doing some significant publicity in the lead up to, and during, the CricketForce weekend, to provide some profile for clubs. There will also be some `Focus Projects` selected from the registered clubs that will receive some `free labour` through help from men`s and women`s national team players for the day and some specific media attention.

Cricket Scotland have also worked hard to try and provide a package of benefits for clubs that sign up to the scheme to help them improve their facilities and club, and make the weekend a real success.  Our thanks to E.ON, Simpson & Partners and Insuring Sport, supporters for 2016. 

We also hope to announce some additional supporters in the coming weeks so watch this space!
