S&C Slatter have over 30 years’ expertise in cricket facility design, construction and maintenance, working in partnership with Notts Sport, world-leading suppliers of ECB Approved non-turf cricket systems.
We’ve worked with a number of clients across the sports, leisure and education sectors who have wholly or partly funded their cricket facilities through grants from governing bodies and local authorities or through specialist finance.
Read more below on available funding for cricket facilities or get in touch for an informal discussion about your funding options.
Though many schools, clubs and universities fund their cricket facility projects through private or capital expenditure, there are some cricket-specific funding options available to clubs.
ECB Emergency Support Programmes
The ECB have created emergency grant and loan programmes for affiliated cricket clubs who have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
Find out more about these three schemes here.
EWCT Interest Free Loan Scheme
The England and Wales Cricket Trust (EWCT) provides finance to clubs for capital projects, including non-turf and fine turf practice and match play facilities.
All ECB affiliated cricket clubs are eligible for the scheme, with other organisations eligible if they are able to provide evidence of achievement of the EWCT’s charitable aims.

In exclusive partnership with Buckingham Leasing, we now offer eligible clients the option to fund, build and maintain their cricket facilities through one point of contact.
Together we offer three flexible finance solutions to help schools, clubs and local authorities (subject to approval) to spread the cost of investing in cricket facilities over time.
You can find out more about each of our finance options below:
Through one of our finance solutions, you can spread the cost of your new facility – or the cost of refurbishment – with fixed repayments over a period of 1-7 years.
With additional benefits such as no-deposit options, deferred payment and the option to reclaim VAT from the offset*, you can finance your facility with low up front costs and regular repayments, allowing you to reinvest capital expenditure into other areas of your organisation.
*Some benefits are only available on specific finance options, please check the individual pages for more detail.
