There has never been a better time for people in Gloucestershire to get involved in disability cricket, with more opportunities than ever before.

This area of work is led by Super 1s Disability Development Officer Jeanette Tate.  Each year from September to February we provide coaching in special schools all over the county with the aim of giving young people with disabilities a taste of cricket and encouraging them to join a club.  The opportunity for people with either learning difficulties and physical disabilities is now very accessible. Along with Frenchay Falcons CC, the GCB is forming new Disability Cricket Hubs across the county. These hubs are being supported through funding and resources from the Lords Taverner’s Super1s programme.  Gloucestershire also have two county teams that play in the ECB Softball Leagues and a Visually Impaired team, the Gloucestershire Growlers.

For more information on our Disability Hubs or any other aspect of disability cricket please email Jeanette Tate or phone her on 07432 728926.
