W&HCC Net Sessions 2015 - Woking Leisure Centre
Sunday 5th April: 4.00 - 6.00 pm
Once again, we are pleased to announce that we have been awarded £350 of materials and equipment from Jewsons as part of the ECB Natwest CricketForce scheme. We will be holding a work weekend at the club on Saturday and Sunday the 28th and 29th March in conjunction with the scheme and are looking for as many volunteers as possible to make themselves available..
Woking and Horsell CC are very pleased to announce that after meetings with the Bedser Foundation and Woking Borough Council, we will be hosting the Woking and Horsell Bedser Festival of Cricket running from 16th-21st June this summer.
Sir Alec Bedser became the first England bowler to be knighted for services to cricket and still holds a place in the top 20 highest ever ICC bowler rankings in Test Cricket for any country. He had extensive links with the club and the Bedser Foundation has been set up as a legacy to him and his brother Eric foremost to drive the ability of cricket to be available to all schools in Woking and the surrounding area.
The festival will start on Tuesday 16th June with one of the Bedser Programme Assessments taking place at the club and then conclude on Sunday 21st June as the Surrey Masters XI take on a Woking & Horsell XI. The Surrey Masters team consists of former Surrey county cricketers, many of whom have gained international honours with England.
The full program of events for the Festival will be developed over the coming weeks and communicated as such, but please make sure that you have the dates reserved in your diary now for a very exciting week at the club.
