We are opening the ECAD National Deaf Cricket Centre in Birmingham in October 2021.
This centre will provide opportunities for our members to meet regularly throughout the winter as well as receive Deaf aware coaching which they are not likely to be able to access elsewhere, plus regular indoor matches.
There will also be training for our Academy players aged 12-18 and for Women & Girls.
Deaf people are twice as likely to suffer from mental health issues and so the social side of the game is critical, especially in the current challenging environment which has left many of our members socially isolated.
The centre will cost us £10,000 a year to run. We hope you can support us to reach our target.
