Have your say, help improve cricket in Shropshire

Shropshire Cricket Board calls on recreational cricketers to have their say and influence the future of cricket at grassroots level in the second annual National Cricket Playing survey.

Last year more than 300 players in Shropshire responded to the survey – the first of its kind ever undertaken in cricket – and Shropshire Cricket Board is already acting on the comprehensive and wide-ranging feedback received. Clubs and leagues are reviewing formats, rule changes, start times, travel distances to matches and greater opportunities for women, girls and disability cricketers to play the game.

Examples of changes in Shropshire since last year’s survey include:

  •  The formalization and running of the Broseley Bash T20 Club Cluster League
  •  The development of a T20 4 x Midweek League Representative Competition
  •  The development of a Midweek T20 Champions League Finals Day
  •  The formalization and running of a Women’s Club Hard Ball League
  •  The development of a Women’s Club autumn Indoor league
  •  The development of a Colts (16- 19) autumn Indoor League

“Last year’s survey attracted a fantastic response and we intend to listen and respond with innovative and forward-thinking ideas which will all help attract more players and volunteers and make it as inclusive as possible”.

Please complete the survey to allow us to help you shape the future of your cricket needs in Shropshire.
