Junior Cricket for 2019 - Pitch Lengths

The ECB has now released its recommended pitch lengths for junior boys cricket after significant research and consultation and organisations across the country.

These new pitch lengths are applicable for 2019.

The changes focus on efforts to make the game more inclusive and exciting for young players with research showing that that short pitch lengths lead to more positive experience for all involved. This includes less extras, more balls being in areas where batters can hit them, more boundaries being scored and runs being scored all around the ground.

Please inform your groundsmen with immediate effect.

The new pitch lengths for junior cricket:

Under 9's                15 yards

Under 11's              17 yards

Under 13's              19 yards

Under 15's              22 yards

Under 17's              22 yards
