Focus Club

In 2005, the 39 County Cricket Boards across England and Wales started the process of identifying a network of Focus Clubs and their Community Clusters.

What is a Focus Club Community Cluster?

A Focus Club Community Cluster is in essence a geographic area and is a collaboration of:

  • The Focus Club (cricket club)
  • Its partnership of schools/education establishments (including primary, secondary, special education needs schools, high and further education colleges)
  • Local community groups (including youth clubs, brownies, guides, cubs, etc...)
  • Local business and sponsors

Across the 39 County Cricket Boards in England and Wales there are currently just under 1,400 identified Focus Clubs. Focus Clubs are selected by County Boards on the basis that:

  • They are identified as a key deliverer within the County Cricket Board Strategic Development Plan.
  • They are committed to delivery of junior development programmes and/or development activities with specific target groups (disability, women/girls, and ethnic minorities).
  • They are able to access and utilise ECB, County Cricket Board and local development resources to support the delivery of their club development plan.

A cricket club that is designated a Focus Club is:

  • Affiliated to the ECB via their County Cricket Board.
  • Committed to achieving the objectives within ‘Building Partnerships’.
  • Will work in partnership with ECB, the County Cricket Board, schools and the community to deliver high quality agreed outcomes.
  • Has achieved or is committed to achieving and maintaining ECB Clubmark Accreditation evidencing that they are a safe, effective and child friendly club.
  • Has a Club Development Plan that has been approved by the County Cricket Board and is reviewed and updated on an annual basis.
