Abstract/Contents:"The Sustainable Cricket Project investigated the environmental sustainability of cricket in England and Wales as the sport aims to reduce resource consumption and environmental impact, increase environmental benefits and reduce operating costs for community clubs. A benchmark survey of 45 clubs was used to determine typical values for water, energy, fuel and agrochemical consumption as well as attitudes to environmental best practice. In addition the location of 6500 facilities was mapped in relation to water supply stress, irrigation demand and flood risk. Mean annual water consumption was 563 m3/yr but 84% of clubs used mains potable water supply for irrigation, this is despite significant current stress on water supply in low rainfall regions of the UK. Modelling using UK climate change data showed that irrigation demand is projected to increase for the majority of clubs. With a third of all cricket facilities at risk of flooding due to proximity to water courses, both extremes of water drought and flood are issues that require adaptation strategies such as alternative sourcing of water, water harvesting and recycling and reduction of residual flood risk. The ability of clubs to adapt to these pressures is limited by financial resources as opposed to awareness of will to act."
