All Stars Cricket

All Stars Cricket



The England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) recently launched the first nationwide entry-level participation programme for cricket, with the aim of getting 50,000 boys and girls excited by the game this year.
A new generation of families will be introduced to the game through All Stars Cricket, a major new grassroots initiative which starts in May. 
All Stars Cricket will be delivered through local cricket clubs and centres across England and Wales this summer, giving 5-8 year olds their first experience of the game.


Cornwall Cricket Board have already done a fantastic job in signing up 29 Clubs across Cornwall to take part in the initiative. Cornwall Cricket Board have joined forces with the Someset County Cricket Club and the ECB to hopefully further its reach in the South West as well as reward those who sign up.

Working across Cornwall, Somerset, Devon, and Dorset, Somerset County Cricket Club is delighted to announce that all children who sign up to All Stars Cricket will be offered a free ticket to watch a NatWest T20 Blast or International U19 match* at the Cooper Associates County Ground this summer. With four games to choose from, all those who sign up will be sent a link towards the end of May which will allow them to register their interest with their preferred match dates: 

  • Somerset v Hampshire, Wednesday 26th July, 17:30
  • Somerset v Kent, Saturday 12th August, T20, 14:30 (also includes Western Storm v Loughborough Lightening, KSL at Midday)
  • Somerset v Glamorgan, Sunday 13th August, T20, 14:30
  • England U19s v India U19s, One Day International (U19s), 10:30

On finalising our commitment to All Stars Cricket and the 150 Clubs who have signed up in our region thus far, Somerset County Cricket Club’s CEO Guy Lavender said: “Our Cricket Board do a fantastic job across the region to engage young children at grassroots level and the introduction of All Stars Cricket will allow them to further that reach."

“As a County Club, it is vital we support these initiatives and encourage new faces to the game as these young children are our future, be it as a player or spectator. So far 150 Clubs across the South West have signed up to All Stars Cricket and through our ticket offer, we look forward to rewarding them to a day out at the Cooper Associates County Ground this summer.” 

Joe Skinner from the Cornwall Cricket Board said: “All Stars Cricket is a fantastic way of introducing young children to playing cricket and getting their parents to join in, our thanks must go to Somerset County Cricket Club for their support, it will also now give the children the chance to watch their first match too in the most exciting of environments.”

All girls and boys are welcome, and each registered child will receive a pack of cricket goodies including a cricket bat, ball, backpack, water bottle, personalised shirt and cap to keep so that they can continue their love of cricket when they go home. 

You are now able to register for All Stars Cricket from 20 March 2017. Click sign up now!!

*Tickets will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please note some NatWest T20 Blast matches sell out iso purchasing additional adult tickets in advance is recommended to avoid disappointment on the day. Registration is required.
