What is the ACE Programme?

The ACE Programme was launched by Surrey County Cricket Club in January 2020 in response to the decline of the black British professional players by 75%, and less than 1% of the recreational game. The ACE Programme was designed to engage young people of African and Caribbean Heritage and a talent search was launched.

The vision

The ACE Programme Charity aims to inspire the wider game to support reconnecting with the Black community. The vision is to be a catalyst to accelerate change and has a ambition to  become a national charity operating in five key cities with target communities.

One of those cities is Bristol, with one of the opportunities available to cricketers being selection for an ACE scholarship.
