NatWest CricketForce in Wiltshire
What is Natwest Cricketforce?
NatWest CricketForce is a nationwide initiative aimed at cricket clubs. The programme is designed to bring clubs and their local community closer together, and ensure they’re ready for the new season.
In previous years, club projects have ranged from simple paint jobs, sight screen scrubbing, and renewed boundary fencing, to brand new changing rooms, function rooms, and even a new pavilion.
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, typically over a special weekend before the start of the cricket season.
It is a great way to bring the club together and make sure that the club is ready for the new season. How large the project is does not matter, its about bringing the club together at the start of the season and finding new volunteers while carrying out jobs that are needed.
Natwest CricketForce 2016
NatWest CricketForce is held over an allocated weekend each year. NatWest CricketForce 2016 will take place on 1-3 April.
In 2016, the ECB will focus on supporting clubs to engage those members who don’t usually get involved, and help clubs reach out to their local communities. We encourage clubs to be bold and approach new people and businesses in their local area for support. Whether that is in the form of equipment, materials, expertise or simply volunteer hours, every bit of support will help.
This is your opportunity to help your club attract new members, get ready for the upcoming season and engage the local community to ensure a sustainable future.
