ACCF launch 'TARGET ZONE' cricket competition

 Further to recent government and ECB guidelines, ACCF is using its venue to provide an activity for small groups that complies with all restriction guidelines. Whilst we acknowledge and hope that many cricket clubs may be running their own similar small sided coaching activities, we are conscious that many young people remain starved of physical activity, particularly in a socially interactive form.

Safe 'PLAY ZONES' for families with children with special educational needs and disabilities

Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation are offering COVID-19 safe 'Play Zones' for families with children with special educational needs and disabilities. We know how important it is for people to be active for good physical and mental health, and this applies to ALL irrespective of ability, age, gender or race. Based on the adjustment of lockdown restrictions, families living within the same household are able to undertake unlimited exercise.  Many public spaces are now available to do so, however, we believe public spaces may not be ideal spaces for households with children who have special educational needs and disabilities. With that in mind, here at the Arundel Castle Cricket Ground, we have designed a systems of zones that will enable families (same households only) to have their own zoned off space to be active, in a way that complies with all Government advice.  They include measures to limit hand to shared surface contact and minimise interactions with others. There are four designated zones (two with cricket pitches) in which families can do whatever activities they choose in their own safe zone within the stunning grounds of the Duke of Norfolk Estate.

Big Six Challenge


Big 6 Challenge 'Virtual Arundel Experience' 

We have launched a new fun and educational resource to support the learning and well-being of pupils with special educational needs.  Our ‘Virtual Arundel Experience’ is a six day challenge simulating the learning that children will get when they visit us – life-skills, sport, literacy, maths, history, creativity and imagination.

While our programmes here at our home in Arundel are currently suspended due to COVID-19, children can still engage in fun sports, learning and sensory activities within their own home.  Our 'Virtual Arundel Experience' is a great resource to prepare children for our unique educational experience and is also suitable for children who have not yet had the opportunity to visit us.  The experience has a multi-curricular approach with a different learning focus for each day.

Tim Shutt, ACCF Director  “At this time of year, we would usually be starting to welcome over 1,200 disadvantaged young people from Inner City London to our beautiful venue, for visits rich in educational content: cricket, other sport, life skills in staying away from home often for the first time, history in the castle, nature and lots of sensory based fun at the local beach. So if the Coronavirus means we can’t welcome children to us, we will take Arundel to them! We have today launched our 'Virtual Arundel Experience' with our SEND schools. A six day challenge simulating the learning they would get here – life-skills, sport, literacy, numeracy, history, and sensory."
