Cricket Club Dinner Friday, November 8 Details to follow
Have a blast this summer with a brand new soft ball mIxed cricket league aimed at local businesses.
The league, which is being organised by Stratford Cricket Club, will be played on Tuesday evenings over a six-week period beginning on May 14.
Complete beginners and more experienced players are welcome for what is intended to be a fun way to network while having a bit of a run around at the same time.
Matches will be played at Swans Nest Lane in Stratford and at Alscot Park cricket grounds. All equipment (bats, balls, stumps etc) will be provided and each team will be given a dedicated coach. Changing facilities and a bar will be available at both venues.
Each team will have a maximum of eight players and businesses can join forces if they don’t have sufficient numbers on their own. Soft ball cricket was devised to help new players develop a sense of the game while having fun. Every player will have the chance to bat (in pairs), bowl (overarm or underarm) and field. There is no dress code; just comfortable clothes and shoes recommended.
The Cricket World Cup is coming to Stratford-upon-Avon on Thursday 18th April as part of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Trophy Tour, driven by Nissan.
To celebrate, Warwickshire Cricket Board will be holding an under 11 cricket festival featuring youngsters from a number of local cricket clubs at Stratford-upon-Avon Cricket Club’s Swans Nest Lane ground from 2pm until 4pm.
Refreshments will be available and there will be an opportunity to get your photo taken with the trophy that 10 nations will be competing for in England and Wales this summer.
Stratford-upon-Avon Cricket Club has a thriving junior section and will be running four teams (under 9, under 11, under 13 and under 15) this season, as well as coaching for children aged 5-8 through the All Stars Cricket initiative and a newly launched girls’ section.
Winter nets are being held every Sunday. There are 10 sessions, each 2pm until 4pm at Stratford High School. £3 per person. Everyone welcome, including juniors and new players.
Senior fixtures for the new season have been released. They can be viewed on the club calendar and can be downloaded too.
Fixtures for juniors will be released once available.
Following the passing of club stalwart Brian Webb over the winter, his family would like to thank everyone for the support and sympathy they received. They have also announced that over £1,000 was raised in his memory for the British Heart Foundation.
