Essex currently has 7 clubs running disability cricket. The majority of those who take part have physical or learning difficulties but it is hoped that anyone with a disability will be able to take part in cricket across Essex in the near future.
Can I Help?
We would like all clubs to consider improving links with disabled cricketers by providing coaching facilities & ultimately opportunities to play. For more information about joining the disability league, please get in touch:
