Dear All,

NatWest CricketForce PPE Equipment

Over 2,800 PPE packs have been delivered to clubs across the country, with a further 400 still to be sent over the next week. If you haven't registered but still wish to receive your NatWest CricketForce PPE pack, you will need to register here before 5pm on Friday 28th August.

COVID-19 Resources

To make it easier to access all the COVID-19 resources on the ECB Resource Hub, we have grouped these into one folder which can be accessed from the home page here (for those not yet registered, you will be required to do so). 

Simply scroll down and click on the folder named COVID-19 Recreational Cricket Support to access all the assets in one place. Any new items that we load into the system, we will ensure that they are in this folder as well. 

Special Measures announced for non-compliance by clubs/teams of  ECB Step 4 Return to Cricket Guidance

Ahead of cricket this weekend, County Cricket Boards (CCBs) Leagues and Competition Organisers now have the ability to act quickly by taking action against clubs failing to comply with UK Government and/or ECB guidance on the return to cricket.

During the pandemic, the ECB has been working to three principles:

  • Public and Workforce Safety
  • Support the Cricket Network
  • Working in Partnership

Since returning, the vast majority of clubs and teams have been operating within the guidance. It is essential that a minority do not bring the threat of cessation of cricket for others. Clubs or teams operating outside of requirements can be brought back into ‘safe operation’ quickly or risk the loss of support, maintaining ECBs commitment to safe standards of operation.  

CCBs, Leagues and Competition Organisers can now use the fast acting ‘Special Measures’ following a second breach of the ECB or UK Government guidance.

Note: This includes participants having returned from some countries or territories requiring a period of quarantine.  

Further details on how the Special Measures will work can be found here or via

Volunteer Survey

Yesterday we shared the link to the ECB 2020 Volunteer Survey. Once again, thank you to all those who volunteer to make cricket available across the country.

As we at the ECB start to develop our wider Volunteer Strategy, understanding how you feel will help us to shape the strategy and the ECB’s plans for the future of volunteering in cricket.  We would hugely value your time in completing the survey which will take no longer than 15 minutes, as well as sharing the link with any other volunteers within your cricket network and across your social channels.
