Chance to Shine

Cumbria Cricket delivers the Chance to Shine programme on behalf of the Cricket Foundation in the county, bringing cricket back to our state schools.

Delivering funded curricula and extra-curricula sessions, the programme provides fundamentals of cricket and sport, competition, school/club links, personal and social development as well as teacher training and equipment.

We have developed a service menu offering for our schools to identify the range of support we can offer.

If your school is interested in being part of what is now the single biggest school sport initiative in the UK, email

The emphasis of Kwik Cricket should always be on participation and enjoyment.

The local school festivals are played through April and July in the summer term with National Finals for the Girls and Mixed Competitions at the end of July. County Finals for all competitions feature at the end of June or beginning of July.

Teams consist of 8 players and play a pairs version of the game of cricket.
