Disability Performance Squads

Disability Performance Squads Kent Cricket’s Community Team currently manages two Disability teams;

  • The Kent Reliance Learning and Physically Disabled (LDPD) Performance Squad
  • The Kent Reliance Visually Impaired (VI) Performance Squad

Both squads train during the winter months and represent Kent in national competitions against other counties during the summer months.  This is the first step to representing the National team managed by the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board)

In disability cricket, there are a few rules and regulations that are specific to the different impairment groups. Where possible the game is played in accordance with the MCC Laws of Cricket but there are some differences which are detailed by the governing body for each discipline.

Learning & Physically Disabled (LD/PD) Squad

The LD/PD squad currently plays in two formats of cricket, both softball and for the more experienced players with full cricket balls (hardball).
