Street Cricket 

In partnership with Chance to Shine and organisations across the Basingstoke and Portsmouth area, we deliver weekly sessions at Brighton Hill Community School (Basingstoke) and Mountbatten Centre (Hilsea).

Chance to Shinre Street brings cricket to thousands of young people who traditionally face barriers to getting active. It uses the sport to increase aspiration, promote social cohesion and create opportunities in diverse communities and areas of deprivation. There are 200 Chance to Shine Street projects across the country.

It's a fast-paced version of the game played with a tapeball - a tennis ball wrapped in electrical tape - in small enclosed spaces. With six players per team and 20 balls per innings, it's cricket's answer to five-a-side football.

All sessions are open to children of all abilities and kit is provided. All sessions are FREE of charge.
