The event, which will take place on Monday May, 16 at Hove Cricket Ground, is one of the largest mass participation events in the South East for people with disabilities and reinforces commitment to making cricket accessible to communities and individuals across Sussex.

Sussex’s disability day aims to promote participation in cricket through a variety of fun and innovative activities where we focus on ability, not disability. The event is open to schools, day centres, community groups and individuals.
