Deaf Cricket has had a resurgence over the past few years and this summer will see the first ever Deaf County Championship, featuring 3 county teams (Surrey, Lancashire & Nottinghamshire) and an ECAD Academy side.
Yorkshire and Lancashire are lining up a Deaf Roses match for the first time in years and there is a second annual match involving teams from Somerset and Devon later in the summer.
Below this, we have a number of young Deaf cricketers (16 and under) who are making their way in Deaf cricket and we are looking for more young players to join us.
To qualify to play in grassroots Deaf cricket you just need to require a hearing aid in both ears.
Although players are not allowed to wear hearing aids or Cochlear implants while playing, this is rarely an issue for new players.
We have a wide range of players taking part - Oral and BSL users. It's a great environment and we always look to make new players welcome into the Deaf cricket family.
If you qualify to play we would love to hear from you wherever you are in the country. Take a look at our new players page and send us your details or drop us an email if you have some questions.
