Welcome

Cricket Without Boundaries (CWB) is a UK registered charity (number 1154576) that uses cricket as a vehicle for delivering health and social messages in sub-Saharan Africa. It is run almost entirely by the dedication and enthusiasm of its volunteers.

Since its formation in 2005 CWB has become one of the world's leading Cricket Development charities. It is dedicated to helping, educating and developing local communities around the world through the spread and growth of cricket.

CWB has three main goals:

  • To spread cricket through coaching children and teaching adults how to coach; and
  • To link the sport to health and social messages and incorporate these messages into coaching sessions.
  • To bring together and empower local communities through cricket.

These goals are achieved through project delivery by our volunteers and year-round delivery in-country by our ambassadors.

Testimonials

  • “It was one of the best experiences of my life! Please don’t let a lack of cricket experience put you off from applying to be a volunteer. Regardless of whether you have any cricket experience or not, it’s all about the kids having fun and ultimately making sure you’ve done your best to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS.”
