Lord's Taverners


Official Charity Partner

The Lord's Taverners is the official Charity of recreational cricket and the UK's leading youth cricket and disability sports Charity

Sport and recreation are essential for young people and our mission is to give a 'sporting chance' to those in need. We achieve this by focusing on youth cricket in disadvantaged areas and sports and recreational equipment for young people with disabilities and special needs, including sports wheelchairs, specially-adapted minibuses and sensory play areas.

  • Management and support of inner city and other youth cricket competitions and programmes
  • Funding to re-establish cricket in state schools
  • Grants towards non-turf pitches to increase the opportunities for young people to play
  • Donating hundreds of cricket equipment bags to clubs and school teams across the UK
  • Supporting sporting and recreational activities for youngsters with special needs
  • Donating specially adapted minibuses and sports wheelchairs, giving young people vital transportation and access to sport and recreation
  • Creating new pathways for participation, development and competition in sport
  • Providing grants for play, sports and sensory equipment
