In order to support clubs with their development needs, Leicestershire County Cricket Club Community Team and the ECB have put together lots of useful information and programmes to help. We want to make it as easy as possible for clubs to find the information they need and hope that you will find what you need in this section of the web-site. Self-help support resources are available to help cricket clubs meet the ever changing demands and challenges they face and are designed to help clubs better manage resources for the future.

Should you require any further guidance and support please feel free to contact us.

Development Planning

The concept of ‘club development planning’ or ‘business planning’ is growing ever more important within community club cricket. A club development plan documents the objectives, actions and costs associated with the development needs of a cricket club. Please click here for more information about development planning and how the Community Team can support you with this work.


Without facilities to play on, club cricket wouldn’t be possible and in this section of the website you will find useful information to help develop your clubs facilities both on and off the field.  For more information please click here

Funding and Fundraising

Although club cricket is reliant on volunteers, the cost of running a club continues to rise as membership grows and the demands on facilities, coaches and resources increases.

Please click here to find out about what funding is available, how to access it and ideas on how to self-help and raise funds for your club.

NatWest CricketForce

NatWest CricketForce encourages cricket supporters, their friends and families to give something back to their local community cricket club by volunteering to undertake major renovations to clubhouses and grounds. For more information please click here

Clubs registered for NatWest CricketForce are also be eligible to receive support from the construction colleges working alongside the Community Team to offer practical work experience for their students whilst providing free of charge construction support for clubs.

Outstanding Service to Cricket Awards (OSCAs)

With Club cricket heavily reliant on volunteers who give up their time willingly it’s important we take the time to thank them properly for their contribution. Without these volunteers things just wouldn’t happen and so the NatWest OSCAs are the perfect opportunity to recognise their contribution. To find out more please click here
