Cricket Kit Recycling

From now, this programme will focus solely on collecting and donating cricket kit, distributing it to those who need it most. The programme is now called Cricket Kit Recycling.

Discover Cricket Kit Recycling

  • Our cricket kit recycling programme is providing access to the sport for young people in the UK and abroad who would otherwise not be able to participate due to a lack of the right cricket kit and equipment.
  • We collect usable cricket kit from across the UK through a network of local collection hubs.
  • The cricket kit is then sorted and redistributed to partner organisations, who can put it to great use in their communities.

How does it help young people?

  • Having the correct cricket kit gives more young people the opportunity to play cricket and develop crucial life skills such as teamwork, communication and confidence, alongside improving their overall health and wellbeing.
  • In recent years, we have sent large amounts of kit to projects in India, Germany, Antigua, Brazil, Romania, Rwanda, Uganda, The Gambia, Mexico and across the UK.

Our Cricket Kit Recycling programme allows more young people to access the sport who wouldn't otherwise be able to participate in.
