Opportunities for Schools and Children with Special Educational Needs

The Somerset Cricket Board is always striving to ensure everyone has access to cricket. A key part of this goal is to offer coaching and competition opportunities to all school pupils. As part of this we are pleased to be able to offer Table Cricket coaching and competitions for all SEN pupils in Special Schools and mainstream education.

What is Table Cricket?

Played on a table tennis table (or similar surface) with side panels and sliding fielders, a ball launcher, weighted plastic ball and wooden bat, Table Cricket enables young people with severe physical or learning disabilities to enjoy cricket and represent their school on a competitive basis.” Lords Taverners.

Whilst designed for those with severe disabilities this format of the game is fully inclusive and can be enjoyed by a wide range of ages and abilities. The Somerset Cricket Board will be delivering Table Cricket in schools in Autumn 2018, with a School’s Final to held in December 2018.
