About Us.

Our membership consists of over 800 current and past international and domestic cricketers across the men's and women's game. 

Our vision is to be the professional cricketers' club for life - supporting them to thrive during and after their professional playing careers. Our values reinforce our approach to be authentic in caring for our people, while affirming the players' critical role in contributing to the future of the game.

Since 2001 the Cricket Players’ Association has represented and advocated for our members and the advancement of the professional cricket environment, the game of cricket, and most importantly the prioritisation of our members on and off-field development. We are very proud to have pioneered a respected Personal Development Programme for our members and ushered in many advancements in professional sport, including becoming the first country in the world to negotiate and agree a collective agreement for women's cricketers.

Three words encapsulate the work we do for our members.

  • Players         representation in a manner that reflects their importance as a key stakeholder in the game

  • Better           leaving a better environment as a legacy for future generations 

  • Together      togetherness allows players to focus on issues collectively
