Walking Cricket has been developing across the UK over the last 10 years, with the aim to make cricket accessible for all ages and abilities. It is still the traditional game but has been adapted to a slower paced version. 

To learn more and see it in action  Walking Cricket

The aim is to provide:

  • physical activity
  • support people to continue playing cricket
  • provide a new activity to those who have never tried the game
  • provide an opportunity for those experiencing social isolation

Walking cricket is not only a slower paced version of the game, it is also played with a softer ball and is usually played indoors. The game allows every participant to move around and have a go as well as score and umpire, providing both mental and physical activity. 

 The playing of the game is as important as the time afterwards to catch up with a cuppa.
