Chance to Shine
We aim to give all children the opportunity to play and learn through cricket

Chance to Shine is a national charity that aims to give all children the opportunity to play and learn through cricket.

It delivers coaching to over 500,000 children every year in more than 25% of primary schools across the country.

The Chance to Shine Street programme is bringing cricket to inner-city, urban areas and uses the sport to unite communities. It is played with a tapeball, a tennis ball wrapped in electrical tape, plastic bats and matches last for just 20 minutes.

As well as the physical benefits of regular activity, we use cricket to teach children key life skills that will help them beyond the playground. Through the values of cricket, we teach children about respect and fair play.
