News

As a cricket club, we are following advice from the Government, England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Surrey Cricket Foundation regarding guidance and instructions.

As many of you will know, we have been told by the ECB that all forms of cricket activity - from indoor and outdoor training to matches and social gatherings - have been suspended until further notice. We will continue to follow advice issued and will keep you informed of any decisions along the way.

No-one has experienced anything like this before but, rest assured, as and when playing cricket looks like a possibility, we will do everything we can to make up for lost time. We will continue to keep the ground in good order and work on the square will continue in preparation for hopefully playing at some point this season.

In terms of the financial impact to the club, the committee have spent a lot of time recently working on a financial plan for a number of scenarios given that our income stream will be severely impacted. We will communicate our plans in the not too distant future.

In the meantime, we hope you, your friends and loved ones remain safe.

WHCC Committee

 
We are delighted to announce that the club has recently agreed a 3 year seniors shirt sponsorship deal with Seymours estate agents in Horsell.
 
Having been one of our sponsors for a number of years, Seymours have kindly agreed to support the club further to include shirt sponsorship. The new shirts can be seen being worn by a couple of our in-house models.
 
The first branch of Seymours opened in 1992 with the Horsell branch opening in 2012 and is owned and run by their partner Lloyd Moss. In addition to sponsoring our club, they also sponsor Horsell Bowling Club and The Woking Sam Beare Hospice as well as other local community events.    
 
Over the years, the club has been fortunate to have had many loyal and local sponsors, 'Partners Within The Community' as we prefer to call them, and we are delighted that such a well known local business have agreed to continue and expand their partnership with us.

 

 
 
For the 2020 season our kit will be provided  by Serious Cricket. This is the widest range of kit we have ever had from new playing shirts, to hoodies, jackets, and gilets for both players and supporters.
 
The Woking and Horsell shop at Serious Cricket is now open and a 20% discount is available for a short period.
 
The code to order any items online is now live for 20% discount through to the end of February - WHCC20NEW – and can be redeemed at checkout.
 
Kit will be delivered directly to you. 
 
If you want to see some examples of the new kit before you buy then there will be some at nets tomorrow. 
 
If you have any questions please contact Phill West.

This year’s W&HCC quiz will take place at our clubhouse on Saturday 29 February. 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 eight 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.. The price is ten pounds per person to include fish and chips which need to be ordered in advance so please let Tim know at least a week before the Quiz.
 
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.
 
Thanks very much.

Six Nations rugby returns this weekend and we will be showing both of Saturday's games at the clubhouse. The bar will be open from 1.30.

The games are as follows:

Wales v Italy - 2.15

Ireland v Scotland - 4.45

Please note that England's game against France on Sunday will not be shown at the club as it clashes with nets.

We hope to see many of you there.

Clothing and Equipment

Club kit is available for all to use. We will make available bats and balls for the younger age groups. For the older colts we have a full kit bag consisting of pads, helmets and batting gloves etc.  Obviously if your child has his/her own cricket equipment, then please bring it along ensuring it is named so it is not mixed up with others.

For those in U10 or higher, they will be playing hard-ball cricket, we encourage you to buy your own abdo-guard (or box). Also to avoid the box slipping, the boys will either need to wear cricket pants (they have a pocket at the front for the box), or will need to wear two pairs of pants!

Appropriate footwear for an indoor sports hall must be worn and please also ensure a water bottle is brought.

Any questions, please do contact your Age Group Manager. It is helpful to arrive 5 minutes before the start of your session.
