Some Exciting News
Our committee have been hard at work organising an entire weekend of events for all to enjoy at the club. Beginning on Friday the 30th of June we'll have a special guest speaker (more on that below), entertainment, food and of course T20 Cricket in what we hope to be a glorious Sun-Filled beginning of the weekend... Anything like the weather last year would be a huge bonus!
Moving into the Saturday, the 1st of July, We'll be playing our Normal matches in the day time, then we'll be whisked off to a Club Members Ball, with fantastic food and music into the evening. Then on the Sunday to wrap up what we hope will be an action packed weekend, we're looking to host a short-format Cricket Tournament. We're yet to work out the finer details of this, but rest assured we will have all the information very soon.
