Kwik Cricket is a fully inclusive game where the emphasis is on participation and enjoyment. It is specifically tailored for children up to the age of 11.
Each Kwik Cricket team has eight players (both girls and boys) and bats for eight overs. Games are played with a plastic bat and ball. Although teams are generally eight a side, there are numerous ways in which different-sized groups of children can play Kwik Cricket – any number can play in a match, from two to 32. You simply adapt the game to suit the number of children involved and the available playing time.
Our introduction to Kwik Cricket and Kwik_Cricket_ideas_for_playing_the_game PDF feature lots of advice on hosting Kwik Cricket matches at your school, club or community space.
The main Kwik Cricket competition is open to state primary and middle schools throughout England and Wales. Independent schools can enter their area competition at the discretion of their County Cricket Board. There are school competitions for Year 6, Year 5 and Year 4.
For further information, please contact your local County Cricket Board or School Games organiser.
There is no national competition for clubs but we encourage you to organise your own local fixtures with other interested clubs.

CCB run one or two Y6 Girls and Mixed festivals in schools areas a year, which lead into the County finals day. Each festival will start at 1:00pm and finish at approximately 4:30. but this is dependent on schools entering. All festivals will take place at cricket club venues.
Schools turn up to the festivals with squads of 10 players, 8 players take the field for a game. These can be made up of younger players depending on school size. The schools are also asked to provide a teacher who is able to umpire and score.
