What is Street Cricket?
With the support of Chance to Shine, Street Cricket focuses on those who have less opportunities to play cricket:
- children living in disadvantaged areas
- children from an ethnically diverse community
We know that Street can have a positive impact on children’s physical, personal, social and mental well-being.
Where is it & how is it run?
We currently have two established hubs in Pilgwenlly (Newport) and Grange Gardens (Cardiff). with optimism that more hubs will follow soon.
How does it make a difference?
Our vision is for all young people have the opportunity to play, learn and develop through cricket. We want them to learn a love of the game and in doing so develop their wider well-being.
Chance to Shine Schools and Street programmes create these opportunities to play, learn and develop.
Street Cricket has four outcomes we’d like to see for children, through taking part:
Street gives young people the opportunity to play, learn and develop through cricket in their community. Street projects target areas where children have less opportunities to take part and gain the benefits of being active.
There are many more examples in Chance to Shine's impact report as well as case studies and videos online.
