It’s all about the social…
Herefordshire Cricket are aiming to increase the number of adults (aged 16 and above) playing cricket on a regular basis by encouraging local clubs to host social leagues and competitions.
These can range from soft ball events to more familiar hard ball versions of the game.
Whatever the format, the idea is to get members of the local community to come and play cricket. Ability is irrelevant – we’d just like people to have a bit of fun! Teams can be made up of work colleagues, friends from the pub or other sports local clubs, with the emphasis being the social element rather than competition.
Hosting a league – More Money, More People!
If you are a Cricket Club and would like to generate more income, more players, more members and more volunteers – why not think about organising a Community Social League of your own?
