National Cricket Playing Survey- Don’t Miss Out!
Don’t forget to complete this year’s National Cricket Playing Survey. The ECB is calling on recreational players to have their say and influence the future of the sport at grassroots level in its third annual National Cricket Playing Survey.
The 2015 survey is now open and closes Wednesday 15th July 2015. The survey aims to generate new and innovative ideas which will help to retain existing players and increase take-up of the sport. Every player, from Premier League cricketers to the occasional Sunday friendly player, is being urged to have their say on all aspects of the recreational game.
Nearly 100 leagues have already revised structures or formats this season based on player feedback from last year’s survey. Log on to the survey here:
Please see the latest guidance, issued this week by the ECB, on head protection for senior and junior players.

We are aware that some online listings websites indicate car boot sales are planned, but this is not correct. The information was taken from events in 2014 and is no longer correct.
