Worcester Street 6s

Worcestershire Street 6s


Having delivered street6’s in 2016 you raised enough funding to pilot our street cricket in Redditch. This has since seen us make a successful bid to appoint a full time member of staff who has now set up 3 hubs in Redditch and Dudley, supporting kids for 40 weeks of the year. These hubs are regularly supporting over 100 young children every week, whereby they enjoy free cricket sessions and have been learning about other important skills such as teamwork, communication and awareness of drug abuse and domestic violence. These are all young people who thanks to your help are now engaging and learning off each other and feel a part of something. So on behalf of my team and more importantly the kids involved, thank you for what you did last year, you are really helping us make a difference to young people across the county.
Looking at this year, as a supporter of last year’s event we wanted to make you aware of 2017’s plans to see if you would like to express an interest in entering a team this season. Worcestershire Ambassadors have kindly agreed to be the main sponsors of this year’s competition, having entered a team last year and we are extremely appreciative of their support.



Our Aim

Finding the next Moeen Ali, here in Worcestershire

Many of you may not be aware of how Moeen started his cricket journey. Moeen started playing cricket with his friends on the streets of Birmingham where his passion, ambition and talent for the game as well as his desire has enabled him to become an international icon. Inspiring many young people who want to follow in his footsteps in playing cricket for their country. We know for every Moeen there are hundreds if not thousands of young people who unfortunately will never represent their country at the highest level. These are the youngsters who may have different dreams and aspirations, of moving from challenging areas to becoming professional accountants, architects or pursuing other careers. 

Have fun! Play softball cricket where there are “no ball games allowed”

Bring the business community together, all through the unique power of cricket, in order to help raise funds for a very worthy cause.

Help bring your teams together to take part in a great event for everyone, from your CEO to your office cleaner.

Change perceptions of cricket, it’s a fun, fast paced game for everyone, that can be played anywhere.


Where will the funds go?

The funds raised from this event will help us take cricket to the most deprived areas across the county, where young people have limited opportunities to engage, which generally tends to be a start point for petit crime and poor life choices, which if unchallenged can take them down a very slippery slope.

Through our street cricket programme we will engage young people through cricket and then educate them by helping them write CV's, improve interview techniques as well as train them to deliver and sustain the street cricket programme itself, for other young people. Helping young people develop confidence, leadership and communications skills, as well as helping them gain valuable experience for when they seek employment in later life.
