The final game of the season is upon us. Time for the 1st XI to play a MichaelBanks XI. It all kicks off at 11:00 in the morning and ends up with the Waresley Awards. Come one come all...
With the onset of short days and dark nights we know that all you want to do on a Wednesday night is go to a net session. So here's your opportunity. It's a new venue and we appreciate Cambridge may not be for everyone so we will try to get some additional nets at Stratton School. Hills Road Sixth Form College has excellent facilities and we hope many of you get to them.
Newly added dates at Stratton Upper School in Biggleswade - every Thursday night 10, 17, 24 & 31 March from 7:00 - 8:00pm. (NEW TIME)
Hopefully most people will be able to make these.
For the third year the cricket club will be held at the Duncombe Arms in Waresley. Always an enjoyable night with great food, wine company and beer. Come and join us at the Duncombe Arms. Still at the very reasonable price of £22.50 pp. There's only space for 50 people so reserve (and pay) for your place early! It all kicks off at 7:30pm.
All the club's awards will be given in the evening so whether you've got the silverware or not please come along.
This is your chance to have a say on the running of the club - who isin a position of responsibility? Who will captain the sides? Can you help? Do you want to take a more active role in the club? Come along - it's really important members not only play cricket but attend and participate in things like this too. After all it's your club too.
See you there.
An end of season celebratory game where club President, Michael Banks invites an all-star team to take on the Waresley 1st XI. It's fun and for the most part, competitive. Good cricket, good atmosphere and topped off with the bar open all day and a bar-b-que at the end. See you there!
On a day when the first team are playing March at home this is a day for all of the club Vice-Presidents to come down, have a lunch with players and enjoy re-connecting with Waresley Cricket Club. As usual we'd love to see as many people there as possible. The bar will be open, food will be available and there will be great cricket on the pitch - hopefully most of it being performed by Waresley!
Last year Ian Keeves had this to report on the event:
"On Saturday, 21st June 2014, the Waresley CC Committee kindly invited the Vice Presidents to the club for a luncheon at the ground and to watch the 1st Xl versus March Town. The food and drink were most acceptable and the game proved very interesting, keeping us there until close of play. Waresley, having looked beaten, fought back and enjoyed a fine win.
Thank you to all those at the club for inviting us and continuing to run it successfully. Special thanks to Andrew Lowin who had the idea for the lunch and was chief cook and bottle washer."
Ian provided some photos and also a commentary (don't blame the web-editor!) View them here (1Mb pdf)
The Waresley Under 9's Tournament is always one of the highlights of the season. Last year we enjoyed a scorching day and we hope for more of the same this year. Over 100 young cricketers descend onto Waresley CC, supported by an army of family, friends and coaches. The games are hard fought and the atmosphere something special.Come down to the club to watch a great day and who knows there may be a new Joe Root or James Anderson in one of the teams! The bar is open all day and a bar-b-que feeds the masses with high quality local food.
As part of the day there's the "Get Into Cricket" Open Day running concurrently where anyone can come to the club and have a try in the nets either against a bowling machine or real bowlers. If you haven't played and want a go or fancy getting back into it just turn up. All ages welcome.
The fun starts at 10:00am and we're looking forward to welcoming players, parents, coaches, supporters, fiends and followers. As usual it's one of the highlights of the season and we must thank all the volunteers that help to make such a great day.
