National Cricket Week

Every year, pupils all over the country enjoy a week of cricket-themed activity in the classroom, on the playground and in local communities.

What is National Cricket Week?

It’s an opportunity to celebrate the sport, inspire children to take part in cricketing activities and show them why the sport can be a game for everyone. National Cricket Week is also an opportunity to showcase the work that Chance to Shine does in bringing the game to hundreds of thousands of children every year.
