Natwest OSCAs 2019 - Nominations now open
Wiltshire Cricket Limited is delighted to announce that it will be holding its annual Outstanding Services to Cricket Awards (OSCAs) ceremony in September 2019 (final date tbc) at the Ceres Hall in Devizes. The evening will celebrate the outstanding work of volunteers across the county and will be run in combination with the Wiltshire Cricket County and District Age Group awards.
The club cricket scene continues to grow. In recent years, we have seen the breadth of what club cricket offers increase greatly; All Stars Cricket, Under 9s Cricket, Junior Cricket, senior league Cricket, friendly Cricket, Women’s Soft Ball Cricket and Women’s Hard Ball Cricket are now all established programmes but with the increase in what Cricket offers we also see an increase in volunteer workload.
As a result, Wiltshire Cricket really encourages your club to take a look at the OSCAs criteria in order for you to identify whether there is a volunteer worthy of nomination in your club. The OSCAs are a great way that we can recognise the outstanding efforts that these volunteers give to the game.
The six NatWest OSCAs nomination categories for 2019 will be:
- Heartbeat of the Club
- Lifetime Achiever
- Young Volunteer (14-18)
- Young Volunteer (19-25)
- The Most Inspiring & Diverse Cricket Offer
- Pro-Active Leadership in Cricket
The OSCAs are aimed at rewarding and recognising the volunteers that the game of Cricket simply couldn’t do without and so the purpose of this email is to ask for your support in nominating individuals from within your club who you feel are worthy of recognition in one of the categories above.

- An OSCAs nomination letter, containing the details of the different OSCAs categories (*note new categories for 2019)
