ECB’s NatWest CricketForce (NWCF) programme is back again for 2016 with the annual weekend confirmed as Friday 1st – Sunday 3rd April 2016. (Please note you do not have to use this weekend)

NWCF is a nationwide initiative aimed at cricket clubs. The programme is designed to bring clubs and their local community closer together, and ensure they’re ready for the new season.

In previous years, club projects have ranged from simple paint jobs, sight screen scrubbing, and renewed boundary fencing, to brand new changing rooms, function rooms, and even a new pavilion. See what happened in 2015 below:

In 2016, the ECB will focus on supporting clubs to engage those members who don’t usually get involved, and help clubs reach out to their local communities. We encourage clubs to be bold and approach new people and businesses in their local area for support. Whether that is in the form of equipment, materials, expertise or simply volunteer hours, every bit of support will help.

This is your opportunity to help your club attract new members, get ready for the upcoming season and engage the local community to ensure a sustainable future.

Register for NatWest CricketForce now!.

If your club has already registered please tweet us or Facebook and remember to use social media when it is NWCF so we can promote all clubs.
