Please help prepare the ground for the 2019 season!

As usual, we will be holding a Work Day at the club in Brewery Road on Saturday 13th April from 10.00 and are looking for as many volunteers as possible to make themselves available.

There are a number of jobs that need to be done to get the ground, practice facilities and clubhouse ready before the season gets underway so please commit a couple of hours to do your bit for the club.

We also need your help to ensure our outdoor facilities are ready for our outdoor senior net sessions which we plan to start on Tuesday 16 April, however, we can’t hold nets if we haven’t set them up correctly and they need a fair bit of work to get them ready.  We will start at 10.00 but if you can't make it for that time please do come along a little later. Thank you.

 

With a little over six weeks to go until the start of the season we have booked two additional net sessions at the Leisure Centre on Sunday 31 March and Sunday 7 April to add to the sessions that were already in the diary for this Sunday (17th) and Sunday 24th March.

Please note that the time for the Sunday 31st March session is slightly different as it runs from 4.30-6.30.

New players - If you are a senior player and would like to play for us in 2019 then please contact Tom Harlow at This email address is being protected from spambots.

All abilities are welcome so feel free to come along as we run five senior teams across the weekend.

Some of you may already be aware that the club has been running a 200 CLUB for many years now, in fact for over 30 years. Clubs of all kinds run these as well as schools.

We would like to expand this to as many people as possible as it brings in valuable income to contribute towards the club’s many costs including utilities, rates, clubhouse repairs and maintenance, ground maintenance, groundsman etc…..

Subscribers buy numbers for a year which are entered into monthly draws for cash prize winnings. 50% of the money raised goes to the club and the other 50% is paid out in monthly draws as winnings.

Historically, the cost of this has been £20 per number for a year. In order to increase the amount of people participating and to celebrate the 2019 cricket World Cup being held in England, we have reduced the cost per number substantially for the coming year which are as follows:

1 number - £12  

5 numbers - £50

11 numbers - £100 

To Commence From June 2019. For Ages 16 and Over to Enter.

Or see me in the bar.
 
All contributions are hugely appreciated and if we can get this to being a 250 CLUB this would be a magnificent achievement.

It may seem a little way off yet but with the weather improving and March just a few days away it will soon be time for the cricket season to begin again.
 
Pre-season will follow a familiar format but for the benefit of our newer members, it will begin with a work day on Saturday 13 April to set the club up for the season and the following week, Easter Saturday, will be a club Training Day which will once again be held at our ground in Brewery Road in Horsell. 
 
Our first Saturday pre-season games begin on Saturday 27 April when the 1st and 2nd XIs will both take on Chertsey and a combined 3rd and 4th team will play against Weybridge. 
 
The following week we will see our regular pre-season fixture against Ashford with the ones and twos taking on our near neighbours. That day will also see a third and fourth eleven internal match which will take place at Westfield. 
 
The Sunday season starts on Sunday 28 April against Winning Innings at Brewery Road.

The club is looking for a Treasurer to join the committee as soon as possible. 
 
It would be advantageous to have a finance background, however, it is not essential as training will be provided. The role takes just a few hours per week through the year with an additional couple of hours per week at the end of each month. It should be noted that this is a voluntary position.
 
If you are interested in the position or you have any questions about what the role entails then please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
 
We would also like to say a huge thank you to Janice Woods who steps down as our Treasurer having been in the role for a number of years.

This year’s W&HCC quiz will take place on Saturday 2 March. The bar will be open from 6:30 with the quiz starting at 7.30. If you would like to enter a team (maximum of six people) then please do let Tim Keene know by contacting him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

As usual everybody is welcome so get your teams together to kick the W&H social year off. We are expecting a big turnout for this event so please do get your teams in early as we don’t have a huge amount of space and may not be able to cater for everyone.

 

Fish and chips will be available but these need to be ordered in advance so please let Tim know at least a week in advance before if you would like to order. 

 

Thanks very much.
