Walking Cricket for people over 50

Walking cricket is cricket as we know it, but no running is allowed – you have to walk to score your runs.

This competitive but gentle-paced version of the game is a great way to keep fit and come back to the game you love or start for the first time.

Walking Cricket is part of Durham Cricket Foundation’s 50 Not Out project, which aims to improve older people’s mental and physical wellbeing through a number of activities and social events.

The format is played with plastic equipment and a soft ball. Everyone bowls, fields and bats. Included are warm-up drills and small games before a game of walking cricket.

These sessions are suited for those aged 50+, they are completely free and all equipment is provided.
