Knowing your club and its Community – One Game

clubmarkIn a diverse world where people have many options as to what to do with their spare time, community cricket clubs have a key part to play in creating a welcoming and safe environment that attracts and retains individuals and their families in a way that is sustainable and helps to build a strong present and future for your club.

One Game is ECBs inclusion and diversity strategy that provides clear guidance on widening the appeal of cricket to ensure as many people as possible are welcomed into the game at all levels regardless of age, race, ability, gender, ethnic origin, nationality, colour, parental or marital status, religious belief, class or social background, sexual preference or political belief.

As the guardians of cricket, it is up to each and every one of us to hand our game on in better shape than when we found it. The One Game philosophy applies to everyone at every level, from the playground through to our international teams, from players to volunteers and fans. The aim of this section of ECB Clubmark is to ensure that all clubs are aware of their immediate community and know how to engage effectively with them.

That way, a club can ensure it is meeting the needs of its local area when planning opportunities for people to participate in cricket.

It is about selecting the methods that best suit each individual club situation.
