The National Table Cricket Community League
Our project is funded by Sport England’s Inclusive Sport Fund; now in it’s 3rd year. This funding allows us to support new leagues with equipment, training and coaching courses.
The main criteria for a league to run successfully is to have 4 teams with squads of 10 players each who play each other a minimum of twice each (although this can be higher if required), to then provide a league winner to go on to represent the league at regional and potentially national level. Each team registered to the league needs to pay a £50 registration fee for the season (this includes those teams who took part in TCCL previously). Leagues can be made up of mixture of community groups from day centres, residential homes, after school clubs or local clubs and can run to suit the requirements of the local organisations and player involved. This also goes for the matches that can be played across a period of time regular activity or on one-off festivals or competition. One thing that has been proven in Year 1 is the more partners you have involved locally the better the league will run and sustain the activity.
We have already secured the venue for this year’s competition and we are pleased to announce that the 2nd CP Sport National CP Community League finals day will be held at Trent Bridge Nottingham on Sunday 6th December 2015. We hope that lots of you will be excited about the opportunity that had over 500 participants in year one and we at CP Sport are keen to see these numbers grow significantly as the programme progresses.
