What is Super 1s?
Super 1s is a programme funded by the Lords Taverners in partnership with the Devon Cricket Board to establish and sustain opportunities within cricket for people who have a disability. The programme itself allows young people with disabilities to unlock their potential on and off the pitch.
How does Super 1s work?
Many people with disabilities find regular opportunities for sport can be limited. Super 1s aims to make cricket accessible for all and promote a positive impact on participants health, social and psychological wellbeing. Weekly sessions of cricket allow the players to learn new skills and meet new people in a safe and friendly environment.
Super 1s in Devon
We are dedicated to providing cricketing opportunities to those with disabilities across the county. We want to use cricket as a vessel to develop characters and people, encouraging traits such as confidence and independence. The aim is to establish multiple hubs across the county to make cricket accessible for all.
