Regional Cricket

The regional programme encompasses four regions across the U10-15 age groups; these are Cricket Wales North (CWN), Cricket Wales South (CWS), Cricket Wales East (CWE) and Cricket Wales West (CWW).

The main aim of regional cricket is to provide a challenging, enjoyable yet supportive environment for the most talented boys and girls across Wales. It is, and should be seen as an immediate 'step up' from club cricket and the tier of the pathway directly below County Age Group (CAG) cricket. 



 U10 & U12 Entry: Players looking to obtain a place at U10-12 age groups for the following winter need to be nominated by their clubs, coaches or schools via our nomination form:

U13 & U15 Entry: We have recently revamped the way in which current U12-U14 players enter the pathway for the following winter – they apply themselves! Please watch the two supporting videos below (as well as the supporting information document) to understand how the process works and what we require!

Cricket Wales, and I personally would like to place on record our sincere gratitude to all of the regions who have worked tirelessly to ensure this strand of the pathway remains a key one moving forward.  We look forward to building a strong foundation for our cricketers across Wales and continue to enhance our relationships with clubs and Glamorgan County Cricket Club who link in to the pathway either side of us.” (Matt Thompson, Cricket Wales Head of Talent Pathway)
