Volunteering

Get Involved

Boost your CV with volunteer roles and responsibilities

Volunteering and getting involved with any voluntary organisation can be an extremely rewarding experience. The ECB’s strategy for cricket ‘Grounds For Play’ which can be downloaded here places particular emphasis on recruitment of volunteers.

At MBCC we have always embraced this philosophy and a wide variety of opportunities are available for young and old alike. Never before has the benefit of volunteering been so great!

Why Volunteer?

Good Reasons

Local clubs rise or fall on the contribution of their volunteers. Changing employment, moving schools, going to university, wanting to work in sport or just pursuing self improvement or even fancy a new challenge, MBCC can help you to achieve your goals and objectives with your new aims firmly in mind.

Achieving positive results and partaking in life changing experiences through cricket can be satisfying, fulfilling and very rewarding. Add to the feeling of self-worth and self-esteem and it is easy to associate time spent in cricket with positive results and obvious merit.
