How it happened.....

Committee Agreement to Nets Project


Planning Application Made


Tender Process Finalised & Contractor Appointed


One of the benefits of the artificial surface is that we will have little ongoing maintenance of the 4 lane practise area. We will still be able to use the roll on roll off nets we purchased last year but in a more sparing way and when conditions are perfect. All in all it means better practise options for our batters and bowlers at both senior and junior level.
We will keep you posted on progress throughout winter and update the website with some pictures as the installation takes shape.

Planning with Conditions Granted


Rutland Youth Council.....

The club and its youngsters continue their fruitful partnership with Rutland Youth Council - so far the club has through the junior section helped to raise crucial funds to progress the ground, ground manitenance and buildings with Youth Opportunity Funding.

Ed, Sam & Jadene from the youth council met with Jack, Max, Harry & Adi Salt from the club in January to check on the projects progress.

The artificial nets project is another example of this partnership working well - through their support we were able to commission the nets work at the start of 2012 so it would be ready for junior cricket training in late April.

The nets will enable better quality practise in a far safer environment - in addition juniors will be able to make use of bowling machines for batting and fielding practise.

The club has agreed to run some school holiday training sessions at Castle Hill during Spring and Summer to provide additional opportunities for youngsters to get involved in sport. More news on dates and timings to follow.....
