• Table Cricket

    For many young people with a severe physical or learning disability, particularly wheelchair users, participating in cricket and other forms of sport is not possible. Table Cricket provides the opportunity to play in a competitive game of cricket. The emphasis is on teamwork and sportsmanship in an informal and enjoyable environment.

    The game is played on a table tennis table. Side panels and sliding fielders are placed around the table to create an arena, a small ball and ramp are used to bowl, and a wooden bat enables players to score runs, simulating a game of cricket.

    We deliver Table Cricket sessions in schools across the county during the lead up to our annual competition that takes place every February. The school that comes out on top of our Kent competition is then invited to play against the winning school from other counties as part of the Lord’s Taverners National competition.

    If you’re interested in receiving Table Cricket at your school, please contact Brian Gasking. To see how Table Cricket works, watch the video below featuring Greenfields Primary School (Maidstone), who attended our competition at The County Ground, Beckenham in February 2020.

  • Schools & Colleges

    If  your educational setting works with students that have SEND who you believe would benefit from playing cricket then please get in touch. Whether you are a specialist site or mainstream school we would like to hear from you and to discuss what support we may be able to offer you.

    We hold open events alongside our Lord’s Taverners events where schools can attend with a group of children to sample some cricket activities, or enter teams if they would like to compete against other schools.
