For several years cricket in Wales has been working hard at making our game ever more inclusive and diverse.

This work has now been joined together in a single strategy and with even more ambitious aims our pledge is to:

Transform Cricket in Wales into a place where everyone feels they are respected, belong and are treated fairly’

The recreational and professional game has worked closely since Autumn 2021 to produce a coherent joint plan to clearly articulate the commitment and intention to embed equity, diversity and inclusion within cricket.  

Within the last six months, Glamorgan Cricket and Cricket Wales have :

  • Delivered a joint workshop (Nov 21) where subject matter experts, funders and those engaged with inclusion work considered the proposed plans for Cricket Wales and Glamorgan Cricket. The workshop also heard powerful lived experience testimony from two individuals involved in cricket in Wales.

  • Drafted an overarching joint EDI strategy and supporting enabling action plan which supports and embeds key points from the ECB Diversity & Inclusion 12-point plan.

  • Glamorgan Cricket has also engaged with the Investors in Diversity programme as an industry-wide standard and joined Cricket Wales in initiating an EDI sub-committee.

With extensive specific tactics and actions identified, the strategy is underpinned by three key strands:

  • Support and Education for the workforce (paid and volunteer) to drive positive change in Wales
  • Creating diverse teams and ensuring we have the fairest possible pathway
  • Making Cricket Venues – both recreational clubs and Sophia Gardens - feel like home to our diverse communities
