Essex Cricket in the Community’s Super1s programme continues to flourish with no less than five hubs active throughout the county.

The Super1s is a disability cricket programme for young people aged between 12-25 and run by Lords Taverners in conjunction with the County Cricket Boards.

Bradley Donovan, from Essex Cricket in the Community, took up the story: “The main aim of the super1s programme is to offer young people the opportunity to take part in regular cricket sessions, developing their skills through regular coaching while making new friendships and having fun.,” he explained. 

“This will also give the young people the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of participating in sport. This should in turn lead to a more active lifestyle.

“We also run workshops within the programme to see if we can get the young people to progress to the next stage in their lives.”

Anyone interested in getting involved with the Super1s programme should contact Bradley (Bradley.donovan@essexcricket.org.uk) or Patrick Ward (Patrick.ward@essexcricket.org.uk).
