Wheathampstead Cricket Club News story

Looking forward to the 2021 Season

15 Mar 2021

Dear Members,

A quick update before the approaching start of the 2021 season.
We hope to have loads and loads of cricket this year.
We'll have 4 Saturday League teams, entry to the National Village Cup, Sunday Friendlies, Midweek T20s,
Performance & Development Team games.
Something for everyone.

We understand outdoor training can take place from 29th March -  we are still waiting for specific ECB guidance on how we can return.
It is likely there will still be some restrictions and protocols in place.

The torn matting has been repaired - however, nets are not to be used until after 3rd April - see below.
Reminder strictly no spikes in nets.
Please use net booking form as last year on the website. Available to logged in members only.
Look out for updates as to when your team or age group training is.

Ground Force Day Saturday 3rd April @10am
If you can spare an hour or two on the 3rd then the club could really do with a hand getting the ground ready for the season.
We will need volunteers to help with:
            Netting - repairs and putting replacement net on.
            Rabbit Holes - always need to repair the damage from the winter
            Rolling - If the rest of the month is drier, we'll get the heavy roller for the outfield and wicket. it needs a lot of hours
            Sightscreens - need to be rebuilt and rolled to position
Plan is still to have the first colts and senior games w/c 25th April.


So the club and captains can start to prepare, could I ask you all to update your availability
on the website for at least the first few weeks of the season.

Reminder to all that (adult) league games will start for all teams at 12:00 and there will be no teas.
The 3rd and 4th XI will also be playing the first half the season away from Kimpton whilst their square is renovated.

Look out for the emails from James Mason with updates
