2017 was a great success for Upwood CC juniors including finishing Under 9 County Runners Up, two girls and two boys in county squads, and a new Under 13 team joint with Whittlesey. We also had the most juniors ever training and playing with Upwood either at Ramsey Sports Centre, the Upwood Cricket Ground or at Whittlesey Cricket Club. To build on this success we are delighted to announce pre season training will start indoors at One Leisure Ramsey Sports Centre. The times and dates are as follows:
· Sunday 18th February to 22nd April 2018 excluding 11th March (Mother’s Day) and 1st April (Easter)
· 2 to 3 PM Under 10 upwards (School Year 5 upwards) – this will involve some hard ball training
· 3 to 4 PM Under 6 to Under 9 (School Year 1 to Year 4) – softball
The pre-season coaching will run for 8 weeks in total before we move outside in the summer. The ages stated above will be flexible depending on experience and ability. The cost of all 8 weeks is £20 per child or £3 for an hour session. The coaches are experienced and ECB qualified to level 2 and they have tutored a number of fine young cricketers over the years. If you would like your child to attend or just want some more information please contact Neil (details above).
We are running two adult teams this year. The first team compete in the Hunts League Division 2 on Saturdays and the seconds play in Hunts League Division 5 on Sundays. Home games are played at the picturesque ground on Huntingdon Road as you go through the village.
To ensure we hit the ground running winter net training will also start in February for the grown-ups. We have been lucky enough to manage to book one of the counties premium cricket sports halls which is The Peterborough School (Thorpe Road PE3 6AP). Although a 25 minute drive on a Saturday afternoon the facility here is very well lit and with adequate run ups for the bowlers and will ensure a safe and worthwhile experience. Times and Dates are:
· Saturday 3rd March to 24th April 2108 excluding 31st March (Easter)
· 2 PM to 4 PM Adults and Under 14 + (Year 9 upwards)
We are always looking for people to play, experienced or otherwise, and are very happy to accommodate those who can only play once in a while.
Membership is now just £10 for all members in 2018
