A Sport for All

Cricket for People with Disabilities

Disability does not prevent people from being involved with cricket. People with a variety of disabilities play and enjoy the sport, which can be modified to suit different limitations.


 

From the rattling ball of blind cricket, to specific competitions for people with intellectual disabilities and table cricket for people with limited mobility, cricket is a sport for all. Current options include blind cricket, deaf cricket, cricket for people with intellectual disabilities and entry-level programs for children with disabilites.

The South Australian Cricket Association links with some of the leading disability organisations in South Australia to provide a range of opportunities for players with disabilities and are committed to providing accessible options for all players and supporters.
