the marylebone cricket club foundation Transforming Lives Through Cricket

The MCC Foundation

The MCC Foundation is the charitable arm of Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), the most famous cricket club in the world and owner of the legendary Lord’s Ground, universally acknowledged to be the Home of Cricket.

MCC is committed to promoting the Spirit of Cricket and giving opportunities to those who need them most. Locally MCC runs community programmes ranging from delivering cricket coaching in schools to providing skills-training for ex-offenders looking to reintegrate into society. Nationally, the MCC Foundation operates 54 Cricket Hubs which provide high-quality coaching to almost 2,000 children at state schools, and internationally the Foundation has supported projects in Rwanda, Afghanistan, and Sri Lanka.

In 2011 the MCCF launched its Cricket Hub initiative. There are now 54 Hubs across the UK, providing free, professional coaching to talented athletes from state secondary schools. We coach Hub participants to attain a high standard of playing, encourage them to join local cricket clubs and mentor them into County and District squads.
