Adult Cricket

As well as helping clubs develop junior sections the GCB is equally committed to supporting the retention of players of the aged 14+.

With a drop in adult participation nationallythe GCB has set up a dedicated Senior Club and Competitions Development Group which is tasked in developing initiatives, reducing barriers and coming up with solutions to enable as many players as possible stay involved in the game.

The county is able to offer a high standard of competitive Saturday cricket for its senior clubs within a pyramid system that covers regional leagues, county leagues and local district area leagues:

The adult cricket that is on offer within Gloucestershire is fantastic for any newcomer who wants to play or for a young player who is starting their adult playing career. A large proportion of clubs run two or three teams, and in some cases five, catering for all ability levels and standards. In addition to men’s leagues there are also a growing number of women’s competitions.

At the moment the SC&CDG are working hard to improve the standard of adult cricket by working on three priority areas:

  • Player retention strategy
  • Umpire development
  • Identification and support for clubs at risk

In the last year there has been significant changes in the structure of our local leagues to try and cut down on travel times and ensure meaningful cricket is played at all levels of the pyramid. This work continues annually.

The county also organises and offers Sunday County Cup and Trophy Competitions, access to Sunday Leagues and also Gloucestershire 50+ & 60+.
