Today unless you go to the “right school” or live near a cricket club your chance of drawing part of life’s rich tapestry from cricket is too low. The friends, contacts and experience of the game have transformed tens of thousands of lives and made the UK a better place.
In some working class communities, cricket participation has been rapidly dwindling as fewer schools push the game forward. Part of Mongoose’s commitment to inclusion is to fund inner city projects and help schools develop cricket as a means of enhancing communication skills, intervention on low self esteem, building resilience and self confidence, self development and engagement in team activities. In the right hands cricket can inspire and we want our business to support the very safest pairs of hands.
Life takes all sorts but cricket has a language and social code that enriches and creates social mobility.
