2020 has been a pretty exceptional year given our challenges with COVID-19. Like society, as a game we have had to be flexible and adapt, and we know many players have returned to a slightly different cricket experience this summer compared to previous summers. Given the changes and sacrifices we have had to make it is really important that views are captured to identify what your cricket experience has looked like this year - what you have enjoyed and what you have missed.
The Cricket Playing Survey is the ECB's number one opportunity to listen to the views of players. By sharing with them what you think, they are able to gain valuable feedback to ensure the voices of players continue to be heard and the game of cricket continues to evolve. They would like you to have your say.
The survey is market research to help the ECB and other cricket organisations understand how cricket is being enjoyed and what you would like to be done to improve participation and enjoyment. It will take roughly 10 minutes to complete and will help them to shape their response in working with the County Cricket Boards and Leagues to provide you with the cricket you want.
Everything you tell them will be kept confidential and will only ever be looked at combined with other people's answers. Nothing you tell them will be reported in a way that attributes it to you or your club. The ECB will use and protect your information as described in their Privacy Notice (click here to read this).
The ECB would love to hear your thoughts on how they can improve volunteering in cricket across England and Wales. The survey is market research to help the ECB and other cricket organisations understand volunteer engagement and what volunteers would like to be done to help improve and support volunteering in cricket in the future. Volunteers are a core part of Inspiring Generations, the ECB's 2020-24 strategy for cricket that aims to make sure that everyone can say that 'Cricket is a game for me'.
The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. All survey responses are anonymous and, as such, the ECB do not know who has sent what response and no personal data is obtained from the survey. If you choose to enter our "thank you" prize draw, then your email address will be asked for that purpose.
