Recreational cricket is back and we are now delighted to share with you our new plans for NatWest CricketForce 2020! It’s been an extraordinary summer and clubs, volunteers and cricketers around the country have shown incredible patience and support as we all work to get back to the game we love.
Just like previous years, NatWest CricketForce is all about working towards a common goal but whilst the weather has been our main barrier in the past, this year we’ve got social distancing to contend with! As a result, NatWest CricketForce will look a bit different this year as we and NatWest support you in your return to cricket, and celebrate the moment when we can all come together as a community.
If you would didn’t previously register and would like to take part now, you can register here.
NatWest CricketForce will take on three parts this year.
1. If you sign up to NatWest CricketForce here, you’ll receive a safety package filled with hygiene and cleaning equipment including face-masks, hand gel, disinfectant spray, disposable gloves and disinfectant wipes to help ensure your facilities are ready for the weeks and months ahead.
2. All clubs will receive weekly communication from us providing hints, tips, links to fundraising initiatives, NatWest financial advice and how-to guides on the best way to get cricket played again this summer. We’ll also be profiling stories from clubs across the county on how they’ve celebrated the return of cricket so we want to hear from you! Share your stories on social media to be in with a chance of winning signed merchandise, sent directly to your club.
3. As and when the UK Government advises us that it is safe to do so, we want to enable you to host a weekend in bringing the community together, reflecting and celebrating on this extraordinary season, and looking ahead to 2021. We’ll share more details of this when we’re able.
WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO NOW?
