Since 1996 The Durham Cricket Board has continued to develop cricket
at all levels below First Class. There are some 30+ organisations
helping cricket develop. One of the most important roles of the
Durham Cricket Board is to co-ordinate the development of the game
between the contributing organisations across Durham.
The Durham Cricket Board operates with funding from the Cricket
Foundation. The Cricket Foundation was set up with funding from
the First Class game to ensure the progress of the game and to develop
it at all levels in all 38 counties. The Durham Cricket Board applies
every year for funding. Last year we received £64,750.
