2016 National Player Survey Insights


Time is precious

We understand the life pressures of players and volunteers. They’ve told us that time is important and it’s difficult to commit large portions of it to cricket. We hear this and are working with counties and leagues to encourage versions of the game to suit everyone.


Are you discussing any changes with your leagues?



High player drop-off: 14-19yrs

We understand that it’s difficult to retain players aged 14-19. 35% of players in this age range in 2015 did not return in 2016. The U19 T20 competition has proved successful in providing a format to keep youngsters in the game with 97% of players ‘at risk’ have said they want to play in 2017. 


Have you considered creating an U19s T20 team next year?

Less than half of players feel listened to

Only 48% of players feel like they're being listened to. Our regional teams are working with counties and leagues on how they can improve engagement and provide cricket formats that appeal to more players.


How can you provide more opportunities for your players to have input on important decisions? 


Volunteers need to be recognised more

Volunteers are the heartbeat of any club and continue to need acknowledgement from you and us. In particular, the more bar staff, junior coordinators, ground staff and secretaries are recognised, the higher their satisfaction is.


What are you plans for acknowledging your volunteers in 2017?


Get the Game On makes an impact

Those that implemented Get the Game On changes played and completed 3% more games than those that didn't in 2016.
