Super 1s arrives in Liverpool

The Lord’s Taverners and Lancashire Cricket Foundation are now delivering national disability cricket programme, Super 1s, in Liverpool.

This was celebrated during the lunch interval on day two of the Lancashire v Leicestershire County Championship Division Two clash this week, with participants from Palmerston School taking part in a Super 1s session on the outfield.

Super 1s is a national disability cricket programme for young people aged 12-25, delivered by the Lord’s Taverners, in partnership with local county cricket boards. The programme has now expanded into Liverpool, in conjunction with the Lancashire Cricket Foundation.

The programme gives disabled young people the chance to compete against their peers, enjoy the benefits of sport and live a more active life. For many young people with disabilities, opportunities to take part in regular competitive sport can be limited. But the Super 1s programme has created a new pathway for disabled young people to play the game. 

The delivery of this project has been aided by support from players of the People's Postcode Lottery (PPL). Players of PPL play with their postcodes to win cash prizes while raising money for charities and good causes across Great Britain and internationally, and their support of the Lord's Taverners has helped to ensure that Super 1s can be delivered in Liverpool with the Lancashire Cricket Foundation.

Lord’s Taverners Disability Cricket Manager and England visually impaired cricketer, Mark Bond, said: “Building on the work we have been doing in Greater Manchester over the last 18 months, it is really exciting for us to bring Super 1s to Liverpool. The programme is going to provide disabled young people with the opportunity not just to play cricket, but also empower them to live more fulfilling and independent lives.”
