Cric-Kit

Donate, reuse and recycle cricket kit.

Yorkshire Cricket Foundation launched Cric-Kit, in September, 2022, in partnership with Zero Waste Leeds, who run the Together for Sport initiative.

The cricket kit recycling programme aims to create awareness and a culture across Yorkshire and the UK whereby donating, recycling and reusing sports clothing is done more frequently to help break down barriers in communities to participation.

Cric-Kit launch

The Cric-Kit launch last year – one of the first events in the city to create awareness around recycling sports kit and supported by Junior Sports Hub – distributed roughly 1,100 pieces of cricket equipment and garments, donated from across Yorkshire Cricket, which would have cost around £18,700 if bought new, according to Together for Sport research.
