This year, the ECB's Get Set Weekend will take place on 23 and 24 March 2024, and we are encouraging clubs to register for the #GetSetWeekend using the short form on www.ecb.co.uk/getsetweekend.
Even though the #GetSetWeekend national weekend is taking place 23-24 March, we appreciate this weekend may not be suitable for all clubs and they can of course run their events on alternative dates. We still encourage all clubs to register via the above link, where you can input the dates of your event.
The Get Set Weekend is powered by The Cricket Collective: the army of volunteers that make cricket happen. This season we want to encourage clubs to use the Weekend not only to prepare their physical facilities and grounds, but also to inspire new and existing volunteers to get involved at their local club. The ECB have produced a digital booklet and an interactive editable Task List to support this:
Booklet - The booklet includes advice on how to run a successful event, wet weather contingency plans, tips on creating welcoming environments, and new and improved social assets.
Task List - This will help to support the planning throughout the weekend, and allow you to create a check list of important things to be done.
Graphics - The ECB Resource Hub has a wide range of digital assets to help with the marketing of #GetSetWeekend within your club. Use this link to browse through the assets, which includes The Digital Booklet. Details will also be shared with clubs via email once they have signed up.
Following feedback received after the 2023 Get Set Weekend, the ECB have agreed a partnership with Jewson, where up to 1000 registered clubs* can win store credit ranging from £25 to £500 to support them with their events over the weekend. Additionally, clubs will receive a #GetSetWeekend resource pack** in the post to help promote the activities, recruit new volunteers and decorate their club. The physical pack includes various sized posters, flyers, bunting and drinks coasters.
*Deadline for clubs to register and be entered into the prize draw to receive Jewson Account Credit up to the value of £500 is 23:59 on 29 February 2024 (Clubs can continue to register after this date but will not be entered into prize draw)
** Final deadline for clubs to register for the physical resource packs is 23:59 on 29 February 2024 (Clubs can continue to register after this date but will receive only a digital resource pack, not a physical resource pack)
