Give back to Cricket as an Umpire or Scorer


This Autumn and Winter, cricket in Wales is encouraging anyone with an interest in the game to consider getting involved in 2024 in the areas of umpiring and scoring. It's important to keep bringing people into both areas to grow numbers and help make sure more games are independently run and also that efficient methods of scoring via PlayCricket are more widespread. 

A range of courses are now available to help you get involved.


We now have 5 confirmed courses across Wales for pre-season 2024 (all 9:30am-4pm):

Have a listen to Tomos Jones as to why he loves scoring and how it helps cricket clubs:-


Chair of the Welsh Association of Cricket Officials Jon Kinsey said “Stay in the game you love- no officials no game

And Jo Holley, scorer and Cricket Wales Board Member gave her encouragement as well:

We have the players, we have the captains, we have the coaches, but without the unsung army of Scorers and Umpires, they can’t play.  Not everyone can be Ben Stokes, but anyone can be an Official - Cricket needs everyone.  #getthegameon”
