Disability Cricket

DISABILITY SCHOOLS PROGRAMME

The Nottinghamshire Cricket Board currently delivers a comprehensive disability schools programme designed for special schools. The scheme incorporates curricular coaching, disability kwik festivals, inclusive cricket and table cricket. The programme is aimed at players with physical and learning disabilities.

SCHOOL COMPETITIONS

In 2013, the Nottinghamshire Cricket Board (working in partnership with the Belvoir Castle Cricket Trust) delivered a Table Cricket County Competition open to all schools that cater for children with disabilities. Five schools took part in the event held at Nottingham Trent University. Portland College won the competition.

The NCB also organises two annual inclusive cricket festivals accessible for all schools who receive disability provision. Festivals take place in the North and South of the county.

For more information on disability provision please contact Jack Arnold (Community Development Officer) by phone on 0115 982 3000 (378) or by email at jack.arnold@nottsccc.co.uk)
