Newsflash

Suffolk Cricket Board and associated Leagues are calling upon recreational cricketers to have their say and influence the future of cricket at grassroots level in the second annual National Cricket Playing survey.

Last year 214 players in the county responded to the survey - the first of its kind ever undertaken in cricket and Suffolk Cricket Board along with ECB  is already acting on the comprehensive and wide-ranging feedback received.

2014 - We need your help, so that we can ensure we respond to what players want. To get a representative view, we need 500 responses, so please encourage all current (and lapsed) players (min 14yrs and upwards) you know to complete this survey.

Once all of your responses have been collated we’ll liaise with players, clubs and leagues to discuss and agree the future of cricket in our county. 
Rest assured we intend to listen and respond with innovative and forward-thinking ideas which will all help attract more players and volunteers, which will benefit cricket as a whole.

Thank-you
