Chance to Shine Street Clubs bring cricket to thousands of young people who traditionally face barriers to getting active. It uses the sport to increase aspiration, promote social cohesion and create opportunities in diverse communities and areas of deprivation. There are 200 Chance to Shine Street Clubs across the country.

It’s a fast-paced version of the game played with a tapeball – a tennis ball wrapped in electrical tape – in small enclosed spaces. With six players per team and 20 balls per innings, it’s cricket’s answer to five-a-side football.

Street Cricket Clubs are completely FREE for all to attend, funded by Chance to Shine
