How to get involved as a Volunteer in cricket
This area on of the website is dedicated to volunteering schemes and sharing good practice on how to recruit, retain and reward volunteers at cricket clubs.
Make a difference to your local club
It’s fair to say that cricket could not survive without its huge army of unsung heroes. Volunteering, just to be clear, includes everyone who gives their time in some way to help the game.
It includes small gestures like websites, media, match reports or making teas at a game to more fundamental contributions of course, such as preparing the facilities, or coaching kids’ teams, which may of course include the stars of the future.
It’s no exaggeration to say that big stars like Andrew Strauss, Kevin Peterson and Andrew Flintoff simply wouldn’t be where they are today without the hard work of volunteers.

Every year the LCB Outstanding Service to Cricket Awards (OSCAs) celebration dinner is held to honour the numerous volunteers that keep the game of cricket going. More details of the event and how to get involved is available from Dave Hardman, Cricket Support Officer at the LCB on 0161 718 2899 / 07515 753742 or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The LCB & ECB values all the volunteers in cricket - and there are pages on the ECB website on the national awards called NatWest OSCAs that recognise some of the tremendous achievements in this field.
NatWest CricketForce encourages cricket supporters, their friends and families to give something back to their local community cricket club by volunteering to undertake major renovations to clubhouses and grounds.
