Who are Chilwell Cricket Club?
Our small club was formed in 1890, making us 130 years old in the 2020 season. We have two teams that play in the Gunn & Moore South Nottinghamshire Cricket League on Saturdays.
We also have two Sunday teams - one in the Newark Alliance Sunday League (Division 1), and the other in the Mansfield & District League (Division 3 South).
Why are we looking for your support?
Chilwell Cricket Club (Nottinghamshire) would like to refurbish and restore the old nets structure behind Chilwell School / Chilwell Olympia - providing a facility for outdoor training once more, for our club members, school pupils, and the wider community.
With funds severely affected by the cancellation (so far) of the 2020 season, our income has ceased while costs remain. Therefore, we call on members, supporters, and the wider community (especially cricket lovers connected to Chilwell school) to help with a long overdue project to provide training facilities and resources.
What we offer to the wider community?
Chilwell CC deliver recreational community sport and physical activity for our diverse membership, who range from 15 to 65+ years old. We have a long history (130 years!) of playing cricket in the area, with many connections in the Nottingham and wider community. Today, our club is a low-cost hub compared to most of our neighbours - and more than 50% of members are from the BAME community, providing important links within and between cultures in the region.
With the restoration of the Chilwell School nets and addition of further training equipment, this will consolidate the recent progress of our club - enhancing our links to the wider community and our future potential.
