Cricket is one of the main and most popular sports in the United Kingdom, with the summer packed full of the sport, both on the television and on grounds across the country. Cricket clubs help find the next generation of professional cricketers.
Cricket clubs now allow you to pay membership fees online, through their website. Members can also buy equipment needed for playing cricket on the club’s site, this includes bats, pads and helmets, all of which are essential for batting. After England's success in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, the number of young cricketers in the country has increased exponentially.
Local cricket clubs have teams for juniors (male and female) and teams for adults, where they have weekly training sessions and one game per week. Several clubs also have direct links with the ECB, allowing young cricketers to be scouted by their county. Clubs are a vital part of the game as they can help young players develop and take steps to pursue careers in cricket. Playing in matches is a high pressure and competitive environment, and it allows for development to be shown by players. It also shows who has the most ability and talent.
Cricket clubs also have direct links to County teams, allowing them to provide equipment and opportunities to the local clubs, giving players more of an incentive to join that club, as it provides them a route into the professional game.
Cricket clubs also offer coaching courses for those who want to pursue their certificates, they will start coaching a youth team before moving up. Coaching is an important part in all sport as it helps develop new skills and work on weaknesses. It is also important in terms of maintaining fitness levels and becoming a leader.
