MCC Foundation Cricket Hub

Since 2011 the MCCF has run a network of Hubs across the UK, providing free coaching and match-play to state-educated 11-15 year old boys and girls; Bradford Grammar School hosts the West Yorkshire Hub free of charge.

Aims

Only 1% of state-educated 11-18 year olds regularly play cricket. The Hubs aim to keep young people engaged in the game, improve their cricket ability, and boost their confidence both on and off the pitch.Over the 2018/19 winter, there will be 50 Hubs running in England, Scotland and Wales, providing cricket to around 2,000 young cricketers.

Background

Resources

Sports hall, nets & cricket pitches.

Impact

Pupil Involvement
