ECB Recommended Junior Formats

The ECB recommended junior formats are intended to give children a great experience of playing cricket while developing at their own pace. By children having great experiences in clubs, we aim to help retain more players and provide the next generation of players. The formats are based on insight which helps young players to progress at their own pace and play in games which are best suited to their age and ability.

The standardised formats that ECB recommend focus on the following areas:

  • The appropriate number of players in a team to allow all players to be actively involved.
  • The appropriate length of pitch to allow bowlers and batters to progressively develop their skills, including running between the wickets.
  • Having appropriate boundary sizes to experience success, while also highlighting the importance of fielding.
  • Having an appropriate game length to keep players engaged but also allows opportunity for skill to develop.
