HCB Vision Statement

Our mission is to grow and improve the game to provide a cricketing future for all.   We aim to achieve this by working towards four Strategic Outcomes:

  • Women and Girls - support all clubs to provide inspiring playing and volunteering opportunities for women and girls.
  • Schools and Junior Cricket - provide a cricket offer that is relevant to every primary school
  • Making Cricket Accessible - ensure under-represented groups have equal opportunities to play cricket
  • Clubs and Leagues - maximise the amount of cricket played through a variety of formats, flexibility and minimising administration

Each year HCB publish an Impact Report to highlight the progress made across the game in Hampshire to deliver the objectives set out in Play it Forward.
