WILLOUGHBY CC are stepping up their preparations ahead of the new cricket season.
First up is the club’s AGM on Monday (7.30pm) when all senior players, club members and officials, and parents of junior players are requested to attend and show their support.
Pre-season training and practice gets underway on Sunday, February 24 at the Rugby Campus of Warwickshire College, on Technology Drive in Rugby.
The club has a five-week booking with sessions alternating between the junior teams and the u15 and senior players (check website for dates and group sessions).
The sessions will be running every Sunday until the end of March from 12.15pm to 1.30pm, before it is anticipated there will be some outdoor sessions prior to the start of the season in April.
To put the final touches to the preparations to the 2013 campaign, the club will once again be playing their part in the Natwest Cricketforce weekend from April 5-7, where the club and its members will engage in their annual ‘spring clean’ and several small projects in and around the club.
With a lot going on, both on and off the field, during the coming season, Willoughby are always interested to hear from and welcome new players at all levels.
For senior/adult cricketers, the club will again field two league teams on a Saturday in the South Northants Cricket League and on a Wednesday evening in the Rugby and District League (RDCL), plus, as always, will have a Sunday club friendly XI.
Where junior and youth cricket is concerned another busy year is expected to cater for demand, with WCC anticipating to field league teams at u11, u13 and u15 levels in the RDCL.
On top of that, the club will again offer weekly coaching sessions and Asda Kwik Cricket for boys and girls aged six and above, with a number of new initiatives to be rolled out to cater for the growing demand and interest from the budding young cricketers of tomorrow.
For further details on the club and how to get involved - whether it is at senior or junior level or joining the Kwik Cricket and trying out for the first time, contact Karl Quinney on 01788 542441, mobile/text to 07775 883102, email email@example.com or visit www.willoughbycc.org.uk.
