Big Pledge is back - sign up today

Big Pledge is back!

Celebrating this year's ICC Cricket World Cup coming to the UK this summer it's time to step up to your challenge - either as an individual or as part of a team - and get active.

This year's challenge gets underway on 3 June and there's something for everyone no matter what age or ability!

Participants can undertake ANY sport or activity to complete their challenge!

This year they are timed challenges with participants try to 'complete a century' by logging minutes of activity to 'score a run' and to reach their century!

The challenges

 Which one will you do?

•It's Just Not Cricket Opener Challenge:
 This is a challenge for individuals who want to get active, are new to activity or who might have a disability. Participants will need to complete 10 minutes of activity to 'score a run' and therefore complete 1000 minutes to 'score a century'.

•It's Just Not Cricket Middle Order Challenge:
 This challenge for individuals who are already moderately active. Participants will need to complete 20 minutes of activity to 'score a run' and therefore complete 2000 minutes to 'score a century'.

•It's Not Just Cricket All-Rounder Challenge:
 This challenge is for individuals who are already active and are looking for a hard challenge. Participants will need to complete 30 minutes of activity to 'score a run' and therefore complete 3000 minutes to 'score a century'.

•It's Not Just Cricket Team Challenge:
 This team challenges is for community groups and clubs or friends and family. There is no limit to the number of team members. The total time goal will be calculated on the total number of team members each completing 150 minutes of activity per week of the challenge.  Example: Team A has eight team members. 150 minutes x 8 = 1,200 minutes x 6 weeks = Total time goal of 7,200 minutes. Based on this total time the system will calculate that this team will need to complete 72 minutes to 'score a run'.

•It's Not Just Cricket School Challenge:
 This team challenges is for schools. There is no limit to the number of pupils. The total time goal will be calculated on the total number of pupils each completing 60 minutes of activity per day of the school week of the duration challenge.
 Example: School A has 150 pupils. 60 minutes x 5 = 300 minutes x 6 weeks= 1,800 minutes per pupil x 150 pupils = Total time goal for the school of 270,000 minutes. Based on this total time the system will calculate that this team will need to complete 2,700 minutes to 'score a run'

•It's Not Just Cricket Corporate Challenge:
This team challenges is for business or workplace teams. There is no limit to the number of team members. The total time goal will be calculated on the total number of team members each completing 150 minutes of activity per week of the challenge.
Example: Team A has 8 team members. 150 minutes x 8 = 1,200 minutes x 6 weeks = Total time goal of 7,200 minutes. Based on this total time the system will calculate that this team will need to complete 72 minutes to 'score a run'
