All Abilities Cricket

Cricket is proudly dedicated to being A Sport for All. Cricket NSW programs for people with disabilities and/or special needs are called ‘All Ability’ programs.

There are a myriad of ways to get involved in playing cricket in your local region! Cricket NSW are always developing new programs and centres for all regions, so keep your eye out in your local area.

All Abilities Programs

Local Cricket Clubs - Cricket Blast and Junior and Senior Cricket

Many local cricket clubs are very happy to have people of all abilities play and support their local teams.

As a first start, find a local club through this webpage. Give the local club a call, explain what type of support you may need and go along to meet them.
