Develop your club
ECB Clubmark is an accreditation scheme for cricket clubs that shows that a club is sustainable, well run and provides the right environment for its members.
Clubmark accreditation also means your club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages, as well as assuring parents and carers that they are choosing the right option for their young people.
Club & Facility Management
A toolkit to support cricket clubs with everything from the day to day running of a cricket club, including energy, water and insurance to ground care and more.
You will have the opportunity to request a visit from our County Pitch Advisors and guidance on wider ground maintenance support through the Grounds Management Association (GMA).
It is also the place to find the latest guidance for larger scale projects such as, pavilions and non-turf match play and training facility developments.
Getting hold of money isn’t always easy and so this section has been developed to support the volunteer at the cricket club and to direct you to opportunities to support your club.
Get Set Weekend
Get Set Weekend (formerly CricketForce) is an initiative for cricket clubs encouraging members of the club and local community to get together to get the ground ready for the new season.
Whether your club is big or small it matters not. Club projects have ranged from simple paint jobs and sight screen scrubbing to brand new changing rooms, function rooms, and even a new pavilion full stop.
Whatever the project you have planned, it’ll be right for the Get Set Weekend.
An appropriately sized and properly functioning club committee is a key element of making thorough and representative decisions which benefit all sections of the club. The Foundation wants to ensure clubs comply with all necessary obligations, such as data protection and employment law; and protect their committee members and volunteers.
The Foundation has an appointed safeguarding officer – Ellen Mutch – and deputy – Jim Donaldson – whose job is to liaise with the county on all safeguarding issues and to offer advice to anyone within cricket who needs it.
