NEW: YCF Launch 3 New Indoor Cricket Leagues

NEW: YCF Launch 3 New Indoor Cricket Leagues
The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation (YCF) are proud to announce three new Indoor Cricket Leagues that will be starting in January, as part of our Diverse Communities Work in Leeds. Leeds is one among five cities selected nationally by the ECB to run a comprehensive Diverse Community Cricket Programme.

Working with Paul Berry from 365 Cricket, the YCF will be facilitating indoor cricket leagues for three separate groups, Beginners, Inter Faith and Taxi and Restaurants leagues. The aim of this project is to encourage more of a diverse range of people to get involved in the sport, by making it accessible.

“We have found that formal cricket is often a barrier for people from diverse backgrounds for various reasons such as timing and location. By bringing it back to grass roots and making the game informal, we’re making it more accessible to a range of backgrounds. We have split the leagues into three groups to promote integration, community cohesion and to introduce beginners into the sport.” -Kendal James, Community Development Officer, Leeds.
