people playing walking cricket

Walking Cricket is a slower-paced format of the game, ideal for the over-50’s. It has has been developing across the UK over the last 10 years, with the aim to make cricket accessible for all ages and abilities. It is still the traditional game but has been adapted to a slower paced version. It is also played with a softer ball and is played indoors or outdoors. The game allows every participant to move around and have a go as well as score and umpire, providing both mental and physical activity. The playing of the game is as important as the time afterwards to catch up with a cuppa.
