Volunteers are the lifeblood of recreational cricket in Cheshire. This section aims to provide advice and support to those delivering cricket at club level.
The ECB Club Support webpage is an excellent source of information about how to manage operations effectively at club level. Volunteers can also sign up to receive the Club Support newsletter for regular updates from ECB and register for the ECB Resource Hub.
Cheshire Cricket Board host regular Development Forums (face to face and online) for club officials and volunteers. We also offer dedicated 1:1 club support.
For a list of volunteer courses, please click here or to book a meeting, please contact your local Development and Coaching Officer.
ECB #GetSetWeekend – 23rd & 24th March 2024
To mark the start of the 2024 season, we are excited to announce the #GetSetWeekend which is scheduled for the 23rd and 24th March to start the preparations for what promises to be an exciting summer. Registration is now open and each club can do this on the link below. All cricket clubs who register before the 1st March will be entered into a prize draw to win one of a thousand Jewson vouchers.
This season we want to encourage clubs to use the weekend not only to prepare their physical facilities and grounds but also to inspire new and existing volunteers to get involved at their local club. Clubs can access official images on the ECB Resource Hub here which you can use on social media to promote your weekend.
The #GetSetWeekend and all of recreational cricket is powered by the Cricket Collective: the army of volunteers that make cricket happen!
Please note, clubs can run their #GetSetWeekend weekend on alternative dates before the start of the season and they can still register on the link above and input their dates. Sign ups before the 1st March will still be entered into the prize draw.
