Ortus Energy Greenest Ground 2024: Entry form, information and how to take part

The Cricketer and Ortus Energy present a competition to reward cricketing sustainability, with a cash prize of £500 on offer to the winning club. Enter today!


The search for the UK's Greenest Cricket Ground is back for 2024, with headline sponsors Ortus Energy renewing their supporting for this initiative. Ortus specialise in funded solar energy solutions making this sponsorship a fantastic fit. In more good news, the winners this year will take back to their club £500.

Last year's winners were Corbridge Cricket Club in Northumberland. The club stood out because of the breadth of their efforts, from installing solar panels and then timer switches so that electrical appliances charge from the panels, to replacing fridges with energy efficient models, installing a rainwater harvesting system, improving recycling and determinedly leaving areas of the ground messy for nature.

The competition was introduced with the aim of celebrating the amazing efforts of cricket people, in creating, protecting and promoting sustainability and biodiversity at their clubs.

The competition is open to all clubs, even if you've only just started on your journey to become more sustainable or biodiverse. Perhaps you've left an area of your ground wild, your junior squad do litter picking, you've planted some native trees or invested in an electric mower. We'd love to hear from you, whether you're an urban oasis in a big city, or a rural hideaway between farmers' fields.

To enter, fill in the form below (can't see the form? open in new window here). The closing date for entries is August 31. Good luck!
