The ECB have a number of useful guides and advice pages for clubs on running and managing facilities, creating welcoming environments and project planning.
CREATING WELCOMING ENVIRONMENTS
The Creating Welcoming Environments document is intended to provide guidance for cricket clubs to help make cricket facilities more inclusive and welcoming to all, by creating better environments for everyone using them and to encourage a more diverse range of people to join cricket clubs and get involved in the game at a recreational level. Club facilities are an important factor in ensuring that everyone, regardless of age, sex, sexual orientation, race, faith or disability, feels comfortable within the club environment.
The guide includes:
- Context - current barriers to participation and within facilities
- Learning from the impact of Covid-19
- Ways to improve your club facilities
- Further information and useful resources
- Facilities survey
- Facilities review checklist
