What is Table Cricket?



Young people with disabilities are often the least likely to have access to, or participate in, sport of any kind. Table Cricket provides the opportunity to play in a competitive game of cricket. The emphasis is on teamwork and sportsmanship in an informal and enjoyable environment.

In addition to the obvious health benefits, participation in sport can be life-changing for young people, playing a major role in personal development and social integration. It has been found to improve self-confidence and motivation, expand life skills and independence, enhance communication and social skills, build lasting friendships, and bring families together.

The game is played on a table tennis table. Side panels and sliding fielders are places around the table to create an arena, a small ball and ramp are used to bowl, and a wooden bat enables players to score runs, simulating a game of cricket.
