Lord's Taverners

lts wide dis

The Lord’s Taverners enable young people from disadvantaged backgroundsand those with disabilities to enjoy sport.

In addition to the young people they support, they measure their impact by the 'sporting chances' created.

The latest Impact Report highlights how they delivered over 9.4 million sporting chances in 2015. This is the estimated impact that the Lord’s Taverners have had on young people as a result of our funding both in 2015 and previous years (where minibuses, sensory rooms, play spaces and donated kit are still in use).

This report also illustrates that the charitable activity in 2015 has created an estimated 7.2 million sporting chances for young people in current and future years through the delivery of cricket programmes and minibuses, play spaces, sensory equipment and kit.

Lord’s Taverners Disability Cricket Championships (LTDCC)

ltdcc logo disThe Lord’s Taverners Disability Cricket Championships (LTDCC), in partnership with the Berkeley Foundation, is a year-round cricket programme for young people aged 14-25 with a limiting disability. LTDCC provides access to regular coaching and competition in local communities across London through an innovative partnership with the County Cricket Boards (CCBs) of Essex, Kent, Middlesex and Surrey.

Participants develop their physical fitness as well as confidence, motivation, self-esteem and communication skills, while local people are trained to become qualified coaches to make the programme self-reliant and sustainable.

The Future
Over the next three-year phase of the development of LTDCC, it is our aim to
  • Maintain the 18 previously established hubs in London whilst expanding the programme so that all 32 boroughs in London are accessing the programme.
  • Run a pilot in the East of England with a view to expand the programme nationally.
  • Have an increased focus on up-skilling participants and volunteerstowards becoming qualified coaches. This will, in turn, help with sustainability of each hub.
Participants will develop confidence, motivation, self-esteem and communication skills, while local people will be trained to become qualified coaches, making the programme both self-reliant and sustainable.

The revolutionary programme is being supported by the Berkeley Foundation for the next three years, with additional support from the Wembley National Stadium Trust and Sport England.


Lord’s Taverners Table Cricket (LTTC)

Young people (<25) with disabilities are often the least likely to have access to, or participate in, sport of any kind.  Table Cricket provides the opportunity to play in a competitive game of cricket. The emphasis is on teamwork and sportsmanship in an informal and enjoyable environment.

In addition to the obvious health benefits, participation in sport can be life-changing for young people, playing a major role in personal development and social integration. It has been found to improve self-confidence and motivation, expand life skills and independence, enhance communication and social skills, build lasting friendships, and bring families together.

The game is played on a table tennis table. Side panels and sliding fielders are places around the table to create an arena, a small ball and ramp are used to bowl, and a wooden bat enables players to score runs, simulating a game of cricket.

The Future
The Lord’s Taverners in partnership with the ECB and the County Cricket Boards, will be embarking on a three-year Pan Disability Table Cricket Development Programme with a focus on providing:

  • Schools and community groups the opportunity to access quality coaching and training sessions.
  • A range of more local competitive opportunities which will feed into a more formal competitive structure.
  • Simplified rules and classification process.
  • Access to affordable high quality table cricket equipment.
