Lord's Taverners

Lord's Taverners is the UK's leading youth cricket and disability sports charity. 

They support some of the most marginalised and at-risk young people in the UK using sport and recreation to build links between communities and encouraging groups to play sport together.

Their inclusive programmes across the country educate through shared experiences and empower the young people that they serve and enable them to fulfil their potential and build life skills - while at the heart of their impact is breaking down the barriers that can lead to discrimination.

Super 1s

Lord's Taverners will soon be launching their Super 1s programme in Staffordshire, which gives young people aged 12-25 the chance to play regular, competitive cricket. As well as the competitive element, Super 1s provides social opportunities and helps young people realise their potential. It improves their physical and mental well-being, giving a sense of belonging as they make friends and gain skills for life such as confidence and independence. Many of the county and regional finals are held at iconic cricketing venues including Edgbaston, Emirates Old Trafford and Lord’s. 


Many of the young people who have been engaged in the programme now act as role models for the next group of participants, whether as a player, coach or volunteer. This is a crucial element of the programme, as it empowers the young people to realise what they can achieve.
