What is a Super 1s
Super 1s is a Lords Taverners programme, delivered by counties that engages people with a disability from the ages of 12-25, giving them the opportunity to play regular competitive cricket in a welcoming environment.
The young people attending receive coaching, compete against other Super 1’s and Disability Hubs locally, and get to meet new people that they would not usually meet. It is important to us that every participant has the opportunity to experience the enjoyment playing sport offers, and the benefits that go alongside it.
Anyone with a disability can play, even if they do not have a cricketing background. Come and have a go, it’s a great way to meet people, make friends, learn new skills and have fun! The programme looks at improving each participant’s confidence and independence, whilst playing in a team and being able to learn from each other.
There is a new Hub starting on Saturday mornings at Cranford Community College in Hounslow. The sessions will run from 10.30am to 12 o’clock midday and will begin on Saturday 29 May 2021.
Other Middlesex based Disability Hubs are already up and running around the county. For more information, and to find out how to join one of our Hubs, please email [email protected].
Hubs are currently running in Ealing, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Harrow, Hillingdon, Kensington and Chelsea/ Hammersmith and Fulham, Richmond/ Hounslow, Islington, and Tower Hamlets. There is also a ‘Super Hub’ that runs at the Middlesex Cricket Indoor School, Finchley.
So what are you waiting for, get yourself down to your local Super 1's Hub now and get involved.
Here are just a few things that current attendees at Super 1s Hubs in Middlesex said:
“I knew nothing about cricket until I joined this hub”
“I made some friends and get to meet new people all the time”.
“This is more than just cricket; I look forward to this every week”
