Chance to Compete

Chance to Compete is a national competition aimed at giving secondary state school children an opportunity to play competitive cricket.

Schools up and down the country take part in local and county competitions organised by their local county cricket board or foundation. 

The format and rules are adapted so to remove many of the traditional barriers to schools being unable to play competitive cricket, albeit without veering too far from the fundamentals of a game of cricket. There are formats and rules related to indoor and outdoor cricket across all year groups, however we run flagship competitions to regional level at U13s & U15s for girls’ teams.

To find out more about taking part in Chance to Compete, please contact your local county cricket board.
