Walking Cricket in Surrey, overseen by the Surrey Cricket Foundation, will soon be entering its third consecutive year, and the interest in this inclusive format of the game is growing at pace.
In 2023 the programme grew from three teams to eight, with Valley End, Old Woking, Merstham, Wimbledon and The Change Foundation all joining the fun. This led to some fantastic impact, bringing social, physical, and mental health benefits to over 130 older people taking part.
With the help of renewed sponsorship from Coaching Centred Leadership, the Foundation aims to identify and support a further 4-6 clubs in 2024.

Surrey Cricket Foundation Assistant Director of Participation, Simon Hards said, ‘We recognise the wide-ranging benefits that walking cricket can bring to so many, it really does change peoples’ lives. We are therefore excited to drive further growth within the club network over the next 12 months.’
