TABLE
CRICKET

Aimed at disabled 8-18 year olds who would otherwise have no access to sport, table cricket is a pan-disability form of cricket played around a table tennis table. We organise a national programme of delivery in schools and community groups and run the annual national competition, open to everyone who participates, that culminates in a Finals Day at Lord’s.


Alongside the enjoyment of playing the game and competing, table cricket has been shown to develop teamwork and social skills among players. It also helps coordination and cognitive skills, as well as providing an understanding of the value of strategy, planning and leadership.


Children and young people are playing table cricket in schools and community groups from Taunton to Inverness. Often, the parents and caring networks of our participants, as well as the children themselves, have only ever been told what they can’t do. Being part of a team and representing their school, playing amongst friends, learning about winning and losing, taking home their certificates and medals to their parents – all these things add huge value to the lives of our participants.
