WHAT IS CRICKET?

There are estimated to be over 15,000 amateur cricket teams in the UK, ranging from opulent cricket clubs to pub teams. Cricket is one of the most popular participation sports in England, with some cricket clubs having up to 4 senior sides, and many junior and youth teams.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF CRICKET

To play cricket you need to be fit and strong and have good hand-eye coordination and ball-handling skills. Cricket involves sprinting between wickets and running to stop balls, as well as bowling and throwing. The health benefits of playing cricket include building endurance and stamina, developing balance and improving hand-eye coordination. Cricket also develops skills such as team building skills and social skills.

COMMON INJURIES IN CRICKET

The most common risk for sports injuries in cricket is lower back pain and muscle injuries such as hamstring strains. If proper protection isn't in place facial and hand injuries can also be attributed to the sport, with 1 in 10 cricket players sustaining an injury, with that figure increasing to 1 in 6 sustaining an injury for bowlers.
