'There is a place for everyone in cricket – of any age, background or sex – whether as a player, official or a volunteer'
Our clubs are always on the look-out for players – there are opportunities at our clubs for children and young people of both sexes, and men and women, whether experienced or not.
Our clubs have different options for all players – from All Stars, an eight-week programme for girls and boys aged between five and eight, or youth age group cricket for players from nine upwards; womens’ soft ball cricket tournaments or competitive teams; or senior cricket at all levels ranging from experienced players to those who may not have played since schooldays.
Umpiring & scoring
Whilst we are better off in South Yorkshire than in many areas of the country, we always need more officials - we do not have enough to cover all our games.
There is the opportunity to score or umpire at all levels of recreational cricket. If you are interested in scoring, please contact yoiur local club to see if they have vacancies for scorers; if you are imnterested in umpiring, please contact the South Yorkshire Cricket Umpires Association.
Cricket clubs depend on volunteers. There are administrative roles, such as secretarial, social media, and fundraising; helping out on grounds, for eamople, helping maintaining playing areas and premises, running the bar and helping with teas. There is a very wide range of work to be done and often not enough people to do it.
Our clubs are not just cricket clubs either – some are home to other sports and their clubhouses are community hubs.
Perhaps you are recently retired and looking for something to do, or have just a couple of hours a week you could spare – there are many ways in which you might be able to put your abilities to good use. Our clubs would be delighted to hear from you.
