#GetSet Weekend

The 'CricketForce' weekend has, for many years been a pre-season focal point for clubs across the country. As the programme is ever-evolving and developing to meet the needs of grassroots cricket clubs, the ECB are pleased to announce the #GetSet Weekend.

Bringing your club’s community together over the weekend can not only help to ensure a successful summer of cricket, but also help future-proof it for many years, both on and off the field.

2022's #GetSet Weekend will be 25-27th March. Clubs should have received an email from ECB with further detail and opportunities to sign up and be entered into a prize draw for International and Hundred tickets, signed shirts and vouchers for B&Q.



How might your club benefit?

2019 (the last full, face-to-face CricketForce permitted with Coronavirus taking effect in 2020-21) saw 2,650 clubs across England & Wales organise Family Days as part of the Men's Cricket World Cup. 

In 2019, clubs reported that 13% of volunteers involved in CricketForce were new to the club, over 25% were female and 36% were under the age of 24 – what can your club do to engage and retain new volunteers?

The #GetSet weekend could act as a platform to recruit more volunteers into your club? Could you host a ‘Parent Engagement Evening’ at the club as an opportunity for parents of the new recruits to get involved? Could your club use the weekend to identify some key roles required for the summer ahead and get people appropriately trained?

Don't forget, if your club could use a re-furb or refresh of changing rooms, toilets or social spaces, or you are looking to make improvements in relation to environmental sustainability, strategic funding may be available through the ECB's new County Grants Scheme
