Our Organisation

Cambridge Cricket Club are an amatuer sports club who have recently relocated to Caldecote, Cambridgeshire that provides cricket activity for the local community.

Currently we field 3 senior teams, including 3 male Saturday teams, 1 male Sunday team and 1 male midweek team as well as over 150 juniors associated with the club.

The Effects of COVID-19 

This season, although heavily COVID-19 affected, saw the club compete in 20+ fixtures. However, in a normal season we would play 50+ games with a minimum of 25 being hosted at our home ground. Developing and maintaining inspiring facilities has been part of our success story in previous years and we look to replicate this at our new home ground to get more people being more active.

With the drastic reduction in the 2020 season we missed out on the majority of our normal income streams which in turn has created cash flow issues. The club however still incurs the same fixed costs.

This has impacted our finances significantly as a club, reducing revenues in excess of £10,000

We are aiming to raise £5,000 in order to prepare adequately for next season, provide coaching for an emerging junior section, and creating a women's team. While recognising that 2021 is also likely to be impacted financially due to ongoing COVID limitations.

We have also applied to the Sport England Active Together Fund, hoping they will approve our application which will be also added to our total. To receive this however, we still need to reach our overall target of £5,000 from at least 50 separate pledges.

Cricket at the club

Senior cricket 

  • Cambridge Cricket Cub (Formally Granta) was founded 1951
  • In 2021 introduction of a new Women's side
  • Teams at a number of different levels with our 1st XI playing in the East Anglian Premier League, all the way down to friendly midweek fixtures.

The Projects you are Funding:

There are 3 things we are trying to tackle:

  • Solve immediate cash flow issues
  • Fund essential equipment and maintenance projects
  • Kick-start preparations for 2021 across adult and junior cricket 

This funding would significantly contribute to the impact of Covid-19, allowing for essential work to take place and put us in a position to move forward confidently during 2021 and beyond. The impact playing sport can have at a time like this can be vital to improving individuals’ physical health and mental well being.

Thank you from everyone at Cambridge Cricket Club for taking the time to read our story. Any support would be greatly appreciated!
