- Table cricket is a programme run by Leinster Cricket. A very fast growing sport, it enables children with special needs to participate in a competitive activity. An adapted version of cricket, it’s played on a table tennis table.
- Lord’s Taverners Ireland makes a major contribution to the cost of this Cricket Leinster programme that is run in schools across Leinster.
- Alongside the enjoyment of playing and competing, table cricket has been shown to develop teamwork and social skills among players. It also helps coordination and cognitive skills.
- The game is played by young people with both learning and physical disabilities. It enables young people to understand tactics, draw the best out of team players and to build a social life.
- Lord’s Taverners Ireland is proud to support this programme ensuring that young people in schools will always have an opportunity to get involved in team sports.
