Lord's Taverners Super 1's Disability Cricket

Super 1s gives young people with a disability aged 12-25 the chance to play regular, competitive cricket. By creating community cricket hubs where young people can receive coaching, we give participants the chance to compete against their peers and enjoy the benefits of playing sport.

Super 1s is a Lord’s Taverners programme designed to give cricketing opportunities, both coaching and competitive, to young disabled people (12-25 year olds) via community based sessions. The programme aims to increase levels of confidence, communication, leadership and independence for disabled young people.

Lancashire Cricket Foundation (LCF) currently have six community hubs delivering weekly cricketing opportunities. The Wigan hub is based at Wigan Youth Zone, and occurs on Thursday nights from 6:15pm-7:15pm. In addition to being able to participate in these sessions, participants also have the opportunity to represent their hub in competitions against the other hubs, and make new friends in doing so. There are also potential festivals, leadership awards and skills workshops available for Super 1's players as part of the programme, as well as progress onto the disability cricket pathway for those that would like to pursue higher levels of the game.

Wigan participants will also become a member of the Youth Zone, with LCF paying for their membership if they join for Super 1's!
