National Cricket Week 2017 takes place in June and sign ups for cricket clubs and schools are now open.

The initiative, sponsored by Yorkshire Tea and organised by Chance to Shine, will host tournaments as well as provide schools with resources to inspire learning through cricket. Every year over 1500 clubs and schools sign up for a week of cricket-themed activity which strives to keep cricket alive at junior level, through cricket-themed lessons and activity in the classroom, alongside cricket coaching in the playground and competitions and cricket festivals at local clubs.

Schools are provided with cross-curricular cricket lesson plans, from teaching and explaining the coordinates of a cricket field in maths, to pinpointing cricket playing countries in geography. You can find out more about this free and interactive resource here.

An initiative backed by the stars

Alastair Cook will be joining a maths lesson at a secondary school, with other big names set to join in at a variety of locations. Over the years many cricketing luminaries have lent their support to this great event, including Kevin Pietersen, Jimmy Anderson, Katherine Brunt, Stuart Broad, Graham Gooch, Jos Buttler, Charlotte Edwards, Jenny Gunn, Eoin Morgan, Matt Prior, Graeme Swann, Michael Vaughan and plenty more.

Sign ups for Yorkshire Tea National Cricket Week (19-23 June) are now open and every school that signs up will receive a special pack and will also be entered into a prize draw. It’s a great way to support grassroots cricket, and we want to encourage as many clubs and schools as possible to get involved.
