Lincolnshire Cricket acts as the arm for the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for cricket all over the county. We work within all areas of cricket from grass roots (schools) to club, county and youth cricket. These range from our budding U10s to our up-and-coming U19 squad.
Over the past few years we have seen cricket grow in terms of participation and sporting excellence and we have witnessed wonderful examples of teamwork and determination.
We run cricket courses in Primary and Secondary schools across Lincolnshire, this year visiting around 90 schools.
As well as this, we have developed our own Junior Jets Cricket Academy, which aims to develop cricketing skills from a young age. Courses are held over the school holidays at various locations across Lincolnshire.
An area which has held particular focus over the last two years is Women’s and Girl’s cricket. Cricket is no longer a game just for boys. More and more girls are playing both for fun and competitively, and this is something Lincolnshire takes pride in encouraging. Many clubs around the county offer cricket training specifically for girls. For more information on this, please contact us here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Although we focus predominantly on developing youth cricket, we are spending an increasing amount of time encouraging adult participation. In 2011 we pioneered a new game in Lincolnshire; Double Dozen. This game is a fun, social game for non-cricket playing adults to come along and have a good time whilst keeping fit.
Another area of focus for us in fundraising. We are a non-profit organisation and therefore rely on the generosity of the ECB and local companies sponsoring us in order for us to continue offering and expanding the services we offer.
We are a registered company limited by guarantee, acting as the arm of the ECB for cricket all over Lincolnshire.
Our sporting vison three years ago was to be a leading non-First Class cricketing county in the provision of player and coaching, and providing a diverse offer of a quality cricketing experience to our community by the end of 2013. We think we can proudly say we have achieved this.
However, despite having achieved a lot over the last few years, Lincolnshire Cricket is always striving for better. We believe in a philosophy of constant development in all areas and maintaining high standards.
