Much More Than Cricket

Cricket Scotland
Date: Sat, 24 Mar 2018 10:00

Venue: University of Stirling

If cricket and our clubs are to grow, they have to become much more than places where people 'just play their cricket' and compete in a league.  They have to play a bigger part in the lives of local people and communities and become fun and social destinations.

In the current climate, sport is increasingly being asked to deliver 'sport for change’ and real community benefits. So, the more cricket can show that it`s not just played by some ‘diehards’ but embraces new communities, formats, and ways of delivering; the more players, partners and funding we can attract.

This event is all about how we can develop #muchmorethancricket and how cricket clubs can become a central part of the local community.

“This is not just a conference. It is a forum which focuses on best practice and provides thoughts, tools and to-dos. Real stories and successes to be told, lessons to be learnt, ideas and experiences to be shared on how to grow cricket.”
