Helping clubs across London and Surrey
The image of cricket on the Village Green is intrinsically linked with a halcyon Englishness that evokes summer days, picnics and a babbling brook.
Ensuring the survival and nourishment of all clubs – from the heart of rural Surrey to the those in the shadow of London tower blocks – is a vital part of ensuring cricket’s place in the heart of our communities.
Through the Surrey Cricket Foundation, the club:
- Works with all 480 cricket clubs in Surrey to promote development and competition
- Helps clubs work towards accredited ECB ‘Club Mark’ status
- Provides financial support for facilities development
- Supports clubs who make external grant applications, increasing volunteering and junior development
- Provides regular ticket opportunities at the Kia Oval
