Rowledge Cricket Club registration                     

A warm welcome to our 2018 season!

It’s that time of year again for our online registration.  I will be writing to everyone shortly explaining more of our plans for the year including the range of benefits and events available for club members.

I know it doesn’t feel right sending this out with snow on the ground but due to an early Easter we are only a couple of months away before cricket begins, planning is well underway, fixture meetings have taken place, winter nets have begun and I can’t wait for that warmer weather and lighter evenings while watching cricket at all our grounds.

I may sound like a broken record, but we are a volunteer’s club, we are one of the biggest around which means we can only operate to the levels our members expect is with your help!  There are so many people from the coaches to the committee who put so much time into this, especially out of season- we just don’t stop in September.

As a big club with over 134 junior cricket matches to play at over 6 locations costs have risen and continue to do so, and all this requires more paid planning so we have had to increase our membership fees a little to reflect it but you are still getting value for money. I do urge you to make sure you completed the forms and pay ASAP as without payment you are not covered on our insurance and may not be selected if you want to play cricket.

We have done a good a job in getting a number of youth players into our Senior sides and I would like to invite anyone in those youth teams who are a min of 13yrs old to come to our nets and try out, you would be most welcome! Please do talk to either Ben (Wishy), Steve, Carlo & Lloydy about it, I can promise you it’s not as daunting as you think, remember we are all there playing the game we love.

The online registration will enable you to view your existing membership details, make any amendments to those details, and add additional members. At the end of the process, it will provide you with a unique membership code and necessary account details to enable you to pay your membership fees online. There are three main sections to this form: registration details (family and individuals), volunteering, and youth consent forms (for those families with members aged 18 or under). All of these sections must be completed and submitted by 31st March for the membership to be valid.

Please be aware that the first Junior Friday Coaching starts onFriday 4th May, senior cricket matches start on 5th. (this is a bank holiday weekend) General coaching of all cricket groups will cease by the end of July.  We plan to run fun / games nights on the Rec on Friday nights during August. These will be open to all age groups (plus parents) and reflect the fact that during August it is always difficult to predict numbers attending. We'll see how it goes but we hope to involve all the family!

Best regards

Hi All

The Cricket season approaches and as usual work needs to be done at the Rec. to get us ready for it.

The work day will be Saturday 7th April this year 9am - 4pm.

If you can possibly assist even for 1 hour or the whole day I would be most appreciative.

Please let me know yes or no by Friday 9th March so I can get organised.

Any help would go down well.

Tribute has been paid to a father from basingstike who died following a collision near andover

Stuart Woodhouse, 44 of Garrett Court, Oakley, died following the sing vehicle collision on the A303, shortly before 7.30am on 27 February.

He was driving a Ford Mondeo.

Today his family have paid tribute to him.

They said: “Stuart was a loving father, son, brother, uncle and friend, who was loved by all who knew him.

“He was a man who lived life to the full, brought joy to many and he will be sadly missed.”

Investigations into the exact circumstances of the collision are ongoing and officers would like to speak to anyone who witnessed what happened or who saw the vehicle prior to the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call us on 101, quoting 44180076858, on Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Stuart played for Rowledge CC for three seasons in the mid 2000s and was a popular member of the first team. He was a great Cricketer and played with a smile on his face all the time. The whole Club send our heartfelt condolences to his wife and two children. May you RIP "bunter".


Winter nets schedule 2018

Please click here for the nets schedule for 2018 to assist you in pre-booking your training sessions.

There are a few notes for some of the year groups so please take a moment to look at the following:

a) Girls cricket teams

As of this year there is a change in year groups to U11 (incrediball), U13 (hardball) and U16 (hardball) in line with new regulations from North Hants league.

Girls U11s/13s

The girls U11 winter nets will be incrediball/ softball training and the girls U13 winter nets will be hardball training. Please register your daughter according to both age and ability for hardball or softball training. Due to anticipated numbers for the U13 hardball net sessions, each girl will be allocated 4 out of the 6 sessions and you will receive confirmation of dates once sign up has been completed (if space allows we will try to allocate further sessions to the girls). U11 girls (softball) will have the full 6 sessions allocated to them. Please contact Jackie Coffey or Josephine Stevenson with any questions you may have.

b) Boys U11s

Due to the anticipated high numbers for U11s winter nets, we have organised 8 training sessions and each boy registered will attend six out of eight sessions in rotation. Becky King will send out details of each childs six allocated dates once sign up has been completed. Please contact Becky King with any questions you may have.

c) Boys U13s

Due to the anticipated high numbers for U13s winter nets, the sessions will be split into 2 groups of 4 sessions each. Each child will therefore sign up to a total of 4 sessions and Chris Finney will contact you to advise you of your session dates once registration has been completed.

Registration for the Winter nets

We will be pre-registering again this year, to ensure we have suitable space and coaches available to enable us to run productive training sessions. The cost of the course remains the same as last year at £6.00 per session.

To secure your/your childs place please complete the following 2 tasks by 31st January 2018:

-Pay the full sessions fees of £36 to RCC direct*

- For the U13 girls and U13 boys please pay £24 to RCC direct*

-Email to the name and year group of your child and confirmation that payment has been made. Please also inform me if your child has any medical condition(s) we should be aware of.

*Payments should be made direct to RCC via a bank transfer:

IMPORTANT: Please include the following payment reference: "U11YourSurname".

Please let me know if you are/your child is currently attending RCC Academy / County / District / Performance training.

NB 1

In some instances, it may be helpful for coaching if some elements of the training (particularly bowling action) are filmed. Coaches will play back the video and discuss technical issues with the boys / girls to identify areas to improve. This video will not be used outside of the coaching session. Please let us know if you do not agree to this.

NB 2

For any non members enquiring into our winter nets, please contact me direct to arrange an assessemnt with the coaches during the winter nets sessions before signing up.

Any questions/queries you may have, please do let me know.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.

Rowledge Cricketer and Barman taking on the Marathon

Your barman is running the London Marathon on 22nd April 2018. After working behind the club bar for 4 years I have got to know some of the regulars well and thats part of the reason I have stuck around and enjoyed doing it. I have chosen to put myself through the pain of running 26.2 miles for two reason, firstly as a personal challenge to complete such a challenge but most importantly to raise as much money and awareness for MS-UK (Multiple Sclerosis).

This is a charity close to my heart.

My best friends mum suffers with MS and has done ever since I’ve known her (which is close to 17 years). She has daily struggles with mobility but despite this she is one of the happiest people I know and is always smiling!

MS-UK is a charity that supports people living with Multiple Sclerosis and by running the London marathon I will be contributing to helping people get the help and support they need.

If you could take a moment to have a read of my page and if you are able to donate something, no matter how much, that would be amazing!!

Thanks and I will keep you all updated


VOLUNTEERING- please read this!!

Over the years, the club has been blessed with a number of key volunteers who have done a tremendous job covering all sorts of areas and been hugely committed to RCC.  They have proved the bedrock of our club.

Rowledge Recreation Ground-Procedure to Hire

Community use of the Recreation Ground is encouraged by both Rowledge Cricket Club (RCC) and the Rowledge Recreation Facilities Consultative Committee (RRFCC). The Committees are pleased to note a year on year increase in use by community groups including nursery schools, cubs, scouts and what has recently become annual use by Surrey and Hampshire schools for inter schools sports tournaments since WBC granted the Lease in 2011.

The Committees agree the Rec is an exceptional community asset and with completion of RCC’s drainage project, expected at the end of summer 2016, we should look forward to more community use going forward.

If you or your organisation would like to become a Permitted User or Hirer, using the Pavilion or Rec for functions or for club or business purposes an application should be made to RCC Events Manager, Haidee Goodwin, who will guide you through contractual arrangements, insurance and licence requirements.
