Inclusivity

Somerset County Cricket Club believe that there is no place for discrimination in any form, and we are committed to ensuring that cricket is a game for everyone. As a club we take a zero-tolerance approach to any form of behaviour which is anything other than inclusive for all, regardless of gender, race, sexuality or any other characteristic.

As individuals, and as an organisation, we have a responsibility to ensure that we do whatever we can to eradicate prejudice from the game and from society as a whole.

If you have experienced or witnessed any kind of discrimination at the Club, we would urge you to report this to inclusivity@somersetcountycc.co.uk. Any report will be fully and discreetly investigated by the appropriate team.
