Soft Ball Cricket
With sport being a useful tool for improving personal, social, physical and mental skills, Wiltshire Cricket are proud to offer an SEN-specific cricket offer to schools across the county.
The offer encourages Primary and Secondary aged pupils to take part in cricket activity and develop a wide variety of skill sets that are both sport specific (e.g. catching) and life relevant (e.g. leadership).
Each school is given the opportunity to take part in a minimum of 6 curriculum sessions, which can be delivered both inside or outside, at all times of the year, by a qualified ECB Cricket Coach.

Table Cricket was introduced to WIltshire Cricket's disability offer in November 2017 and offers children/adolescents of all abilities, many opportunities for physical, personal, sporting, numerical and perceptual development, as well as providing "competitive opportunities for those who do not normally have access to them" (Lords Taverners, 2017).
Run in association with The Lords Taverners, the program consists of a minimum of 4 curriculum coaching sessions which lead up to a County Competition during February.
Unlike the soft ball cricket offer, this table cricket program has an established competition pathway, which includes a county finals days, a regional finals days and a national final, which takes place at Lords prior to the school summer holidays.

Wiltshire Cricket currently provide fortnightly training sessions for individuals with a physical or learning disability. The sessions take place at Potterne Cricket Club and allow the attending individuals to improve their batting, bowling and fielding skills, whilst introducing themselves to a new group of people.
If you, or somebody you know, would like to participate in the community sessions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Visually Impaired Cricket
During the 2017 season, Wiltshire Cricket took another step towards providing cricket opportunities for people of all abilities, by teaming up with Wiltshire Sight and Wiltshire County FA to organise a visually impaired multisports afternoon.
This new collaboration aimed to attract a brand new group of individuals to football and cricket, whilst allowing them to spend the afternoon meeting new people and playing a new sport!
With many surronding counties already competiting in Visually Impaired Cricket, there is a fantastic growth opportunity to expore, and one that Wiltshire Cricket hope will thrive in years to come.
Wiltshire Cricket are pleased to be able to offer individuals with learning or physical disabilities the chance to represent their county in a series of competitive fixtures against neighbouring counties, including Gloucestershire, Somerset, Devon, Dorset and Wales.
Individuals who represent Wiltshire are also provided with the opportunity to attend fortnightly training sessions, where batting, bowling and fielding skills will be developed with a soft or hard ball.
Currently, Wiltshire Super 9s team are in the process of recruiting new players, which will allow the county to field a competitive squad in the Super 9s competition. Therefore, should you wish to represent WIltshire or know anybody who would like to play some competitive Super 9's cricket, please do not hesitate to contact email@example.com
No fixtures have yet been entered for this team for the 2018 season.
