#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 return of #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.  This is an opportunity to inspire and recruit new and existing volunteers to pledge time over the weekend to support clubs to complete a number of tasks, both inside the clubhouse and on the ground.

We would encourage clubs to register for this weekend via the information below from the ECB

Get Set Weekend 2023 & Cricket Collective

- To mark the start of the 2023 season, the ECB are excited to announce a #GetSetWeekend on 1st/2nd April 2023

- The #GetSetWeekend and all of recreational cricket is powered by the Cricket Collective: the volunteers who drive and deliver all areas of the sport. To celebrate and recognise the contribution of the Cricket Collective, this year the ECB are asking clubs to share estimates of how many volunteers will attend their #GetSetWeekend events and the duration of their activities. This information will help them to monitor the vital role volunteers play across the recreational game and show our thanks throughout the season.

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 County Grants Scheme


Assets to help clubs promote the weekend are available on the Resource Hub - https://resourcehub.ecb.co.uk/web/133beb65e68f22dc/-getsetweekend/

- Additional resources, including template Task Lists and Job Descriptions, will be added to the Resource Hub in the coming weeks.
