Clubs around Leicestershire and Rutland are now able to sign up to NatWest CricketForce for 2020.

NatWest CricketForce continues to provide a pre-season focal point for clubs across the country. As the programme is ever-evolving and developing to meet the needs of grassroots cricket clubs, the key focus for 2020 is PEOPLE.

2019 saw 2,650 clubs organise Family Days as part of the Cricket World Cup. The energy and efforts of the Volunteer Champions ensured 2019 was an enormous summer of cricket for many clubs.

2020 will be another huge year for the recreational game with the launch of Dynamos Cricket and the engagement of many more juniors. Is your club ready? This year we want clubs to not only think about their facilities when considering their NatWest CricketForce project but also their people.

Bringing your club’s community together over the weekend of 27-29 March can not only help to ensure a successful summer of cricket but future-proof it for many years, both on and off the field.

What’s in it for my club?

As a thank you to all clubs who participate in NatWest CricketForce 2020 and to highlight the importance of ensuring our clubs are safe environments to be part of, each club will benefit from a NatWest CricketForce First Aid kit designed specifically for the community cricket club.

Added to this, when we announce our official supporters and suppliers for 2020, every club who registers will be added into a prize draw to win some amazing pieces of kit for their club.

So, whether it’s a refurbishment of the clubs changing facilities and toilets to ensure young people can use them, designing a family friendly social area for parents to socialise or hosting a number of events aimed at volunteer recruitment, retention and recognition there’s a reason for every club to Get Involved in NatWest CricketForce in 2020.
