Lord's Taverners Table Cricket
The Lancashire Cricket Foundation, in partnership with the Lord’s Taverners provides a Table Cricket pathway for young people with a disability. In addition to the obvious health benefits, participation in sport can be life changing, allowing for the development of personal skills and social interaction. We also offer an SLUK leaders course to those participants who demonstrate the necessary confidences.
Table Cricket is played on a table tennis table, side panels and sliding fielders are placed around the table to form an arena. A small ball and ramp are used to bowl and wooden bat allows players to score runs.
The Lancashire Cricket Foundation delivers three Table Cricket blocks per academic year, where schools are invited to Emirates Old Trafford for coaching followed by an inter school competition. Primary specific and secondary/college competitions take place during the first week of December, with up to 20 schools competing during the week. We also offer schools and community groups bespoke packages at their facility, details are available upon request.
