Herefordshire Cricket Ltd
Our challenge at Herefordshire Cricket is to help manage, support and develop the sport we love, at all recreational levels in our county, for everyone who enjoys being involved in what is one of the world’s most popular and inclusive games.
Cricket is our passion. Together with our own ECB-Qualified coaches, we are dedicated to promoting the ECB’s national strategies and inspiring our local clubs, schools, communities and players to participate in the game, regardless of age, background, gender or ability.
We encourage close partnership with other Herefordshire clubs to deliver a full, year-round programme of cricketing courses and projects that will nurture the talents of a fit and active next generation.
For youngsters, we offer both boys and girls every opportunity – through a variety of gender-neutral initiatives such as Dynamos, All Stars Cricket and Chance to Shine - to not only enjoy the fun and skills of cricket, but to find pathways on to higher amateur levels and possibly on towards a professional career.
Beyond playing, we are also keen to encourage and recruit the unsung heroes – the umpires, officials, scorers and the countless volunteers who we are so indebted to, to keep the game running.
At our grassroots level, we also depend on the generous sponsorship of local businesses who recognise the value of being seen to support local sporting, community-based initiatives such as ours.
Why not come, pick up a bat or a ball and give cricket a go?
We look forward to welcoming you to the Herefordshire cricketing family.
Herefordshire Cricket must be recognised as the leading gender-neutral sport across the whole County, offering opportunities for inclusive participation for any level of ability through work with Clubs, Schools and Community Bodies
Herefordshire Cricket is the local governing body for the game. Together our team of professional officers and volunteers strive to lead cricket locally. Herefordshire Cricket and it's various partner groups cover the broadest spectrum of cricketing activity including:
Herefordshire Cricket aim to provide opportunities for school children to enjoy the many health and social benefits that cricket promotes. This is mainly achieved by the delivery of high quality coaching and upskilling of teachers through the Cricket Foundation Chance to Shine programme. Herefordshire Cricket also provide these children with opportunities to compete within hard and softball competitions. By providing quality entry routes to the game Herefordshire Cricket aim to encourage children to start their cricketing voyage by becoming members of their local cricket clubs.
Herefordshire Cricket aim to support all affiliated clubs by offering a number of packages which cater to their needs. This will be prioritised through clubs who attend our Club Support Group meetings and the Marches League.
