The Cricketer

The Cricketer magazine is delighted to announce to schools across the country that entry is now open for our A-Z guide to the summer game’s top 100 schools 2018. Named ‘The Playing Fields Of England’, this annual publication is meticulously researched by The Cricketer editorial team and re-written each year. The guide has proven incredibly popular, with more than 250 schools entering submissions last year, which were then matched against an exhaustive set of parameters, with the schools chosen all having outstanding cricket programmes.  

Once again its compilation will mean an extensive editorial push to log, collate and then list the schools that deliver the best coaching, facilities, results, fixture lists and community engagement that sees them not only produce players for the England team but sustained support for the wider game and its players.

The questionnaire is designed for you to provide us with information that will make up the facts of the supplement. We may well be in touch to generate more detailed information. Please can you fill the questionnaire by close of play on Friday June 23.

Each of the schools that make it into our TOP 100 will receive The Cricketer Est 1921 ‘Top 100’ icon as part of any relevant promotional literature. There will also be special awards for excellence awarded to schools that provide an exceptional and compelling cricketing package.  

For reference, this guide will be bumper-packed with our December issue, which hits the newsstand on Friday November 24.
