Chance to Shine Street

Tel: 0207 735 2881


Chance to Shine is a national charity that aims to give all children the opportunity to play, learn and develop through cricket.

We believe that cricket can help to develop the personal, social and physical skills of the 500,000 children that we work with every year.

Chance to Shine works in schools to provide children with a brilliant first experience of cricket. We work with the 39 County Cricket Boards across England and Wales and Cricket Scotland to send specialist coaches into schools, once a week for six weeks, to support cricket coaching.

Chance to Shine Street brings cricket to thousands of young people in urban areas. It uses the game to increase aspiration, promote social cohesion and create opportunities in diverse communities. There are 211 Chance to Shine Street projects across the country.

We feel that every child, no matter where they live, should have the opportunity to play cricket. Chance to Shine Street is a counter for a lack of accessible clubs and green spaces in inner-city areas and aims to make cricket accessible to young people throughout the country.
