Providing sport and physical activity opportunities for young people and adults through delivery in schools and community venues to increase participation

Walking Cricket

Walking Cricket is the sport you love, just played at a slower pace – so it’s perfect for people who are older, or less physically able, but who still want to enjoy the thrill of the game. Walking Cricket involves a team of six to eight players (three to four pairs). Everything is walking, including the ‘runs’ and fielding, and a match lasts about two hours. A soft ball is also used.
