Glamorgan County Cricket Club have sent out a survey aiming to understand the lived experiences of people from diverse backgrounds and ethnicities and their interaction with the club.
This is part of a move by the club to ensure they are diverse and inclusive.
They will be seeking views across a range of methods, most notably via a short survey to capture people’s thoughts and experiences.
The survey, which has been out for a couple of weeks now, will close on Monday.
It will then be followed by a workshop, involving their key stakeholders, which will use the data collected to identify key areas to improve.
Community and Development Manager for both Glamorgan and Cricket Wales, Mark Frost has said: “It’s all about taking a look at ourselves.
“We want to see if there’s anything we’re unaware of and where we can in improve in regards to inclusivity.
“We’ve identified two key areas to have a look – gender and ethnicity – and focusing on the latter to start with.
“It’s important to look at people’s experiences, whether that be with a pathway into playing or just buying a ticket.”
Whilst they’ve been pro-active in grassroots development, encouraging people from minority ethnic communities to get involved, whether it be playing or running the game, Mark say’s there’s still more to be done.
He said: “We’re not saying it’s sorted hence the survey and the workshop.
“We’ve appointed Mojeid Ilyas, in a full time role as diverse communities cricket development officer.
“There’s the Cohesion Cup, as well as an interfaith league we’ve set up.
“And the work we’ve done with ladies cricket clubs.
“We’re always trying to work with the local community and there’s always more that we can do to improve.”
The survey can be found here and is open to people from minority ethnic backgrounds.
