Player a Focus Groups

Dear Rache/Penny,

Hoping you can help (again!)

We are in the early stages of planning our strategy for cricket in the county between 2020 and 2024. To ensure the plan meets the needs of players, we are running some Focus Groups where we can hear the views and opinions of players from across the county.

We want cricket to be a game for everybody and therefore we are seeking to get thoughts from a wide variety of players across Somerset, including those women part of our hardball and softball leagues.

Would you be interested, or could you help with encouraging 1 or 2 to ladies to apply?

We will fund travel to the venue and provide refreshments during the session, all we ask for is 90 minutes of your time and crucially, your thoughts!

Details on the Focus Groups, including how to make yourself available are below:

Player Focus Groups

We want a diverse group of approximately 20, male and female players of various ages (16+) and abilities at each Focus Group, with a mix of:

• Core players – play 12+ games a season
• Occasional players – play between 3 and 11 games a season
• Cameo players – play 1 or 2 games a year
• Lapsed players – not played in a team in the past year

We will be seeking views on the game in Somerset and what it could look like in 2024 to enable people to say ‘cricket is a game for me’.

· South session, 11th July, 5:30pm – 7pm. The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton.

· North session, 17th July, 5:30pm – 7pm. Woodsprings Golf Club, Long Ashton.

If you are willing to come to an evening and help us shape our strategy please complete our offer of attendance form.

Any questions you have, please just ask. Please also pass this on to other players you know at Brislington CC, particularly those who don’t play much or have recently stopped playing! We find it hard to get in touch with this type of cricketer but we would really like them to be a part of the process too.
