We are delighted to announce that there are now 4,380 players now registered across the province which is up over 40% on 2020. Almost all clubs are experiencing growth as players return to the game and new players take up the sport for the first time.
A major highlight is the growth on the Youth side with 1,906 youth players now registered across 39 clubs including 662 under 9s which is brilliant. From a Cricket Leinster perspective, we are especially pleased to see this growth on the youth side as more clubs establish underage sections for the first time. This is key to long-term sustainability.
An examination of the youth data reveals some interesting emerging growth stories (outside the bigger clubs):

All those involved in our sport at club level should be very encouraged by these numbers which reflect the increasing reach of youth cricket beyond its traditional base and on a province wide basis rather than purely in the Greater Dublin area.
At an overall level, the top 10 clubs (in terms of registered player numbers) are as follows:
