Disability Champion Clubs
Disability Champion Cricket Clubs
Cricket is a widely inclusive game that can bring communities together and positively impact lives. The Disability Champion Clubs programme looks to make sure people with a disability have the same opportunity.
Research from Activity Alliance displays that people with a disability want to increase their activity levels but struggle to find appropriate opportunities. We are committed to making more accessible cricketing opportunities in Devon to combat this.
Clubs will be supported with ECB funding, additional kit, and resources, it will soon become very apparent that there are far greater benefits to being a Disability Cricket Champion Club.
How to get involved
Being a Disability Champion Club has great benefits for successful clubs, including:
· £500 funding for new clubs
· A free bag of cricket equipment
· Marketing resources
· Support from the board to deliver activity
