Breaking Boundaries

What is the Breaking Boundaries project?

Breaking Boundaries is a three-year project (2018 – 2021) funded by Spirit 2012. Managed by the Youth Sport Trust and Sporting Equals this programme makes the most of cricket's potential to bring different ethnic and faith communities closer together, fostering mutual friendships and creating opportunities for young people across the town.

Breaking the Boundaries in Slough

Here in Slough we are using cricket to deliver community-led approaches to help unite the town by:

  • igniting conversations between community groups to become more cohesive and develop opportunities to do more together
  • creating opportunities for young people to build leadership skills and gain qualifications
  • forging partnerships that will allow us to build positive activities and create wider opportunities
  • creating fun festival days over the year with a weekly cricket programmes for both girls and boys.

Berkshire Cricket Foundation, Slough Cricket Club and the local community have come together to help improve community cohesion and improve leadership skills for young adults.

As part of the programme we have also created the first Slough Women’s Cricket Team, breaking the boundaries for female sport provision. They meet every Wednesday at Slough Cricket Club from 6.30-7.30pm and it's free to join.

If you would like to know more about the programme and how you can get involved, or would just like to play cricket, please email Billy Cousins on billy.cousins@slough.gov.uk for more information.
