New stretch target

If we are successful in raising over initial target any overfunding will help two other areas of the club. 

1. Part of the overfunding monies will go to the youth section of the club making sure they have the kit and training equiqment to expand thier games. We will also make sure more of our club coaches achieve ECB level 2 coaching so we can deliver more high quality coaching at the club and in schools in the local area.

2. We will use any overfunding to enhance the ground further this will include repairs to existing parts of the ground and the addition of a mobile practise cage.

Our cricket club needs some ground covers. We need these ground covers to give current and future generation’s quality facilities to play cricket.

Who are St Blazey Cricket Club? 

We are a thriving club based in Cornwall. The club has three senior teams and a strong youth section. Our children range from 6 to 16 and we have teams representing the club at U11 and U15 level. Whilst our ground is adequate, we are always looking for ways to improve our facilities in both the short and long term. Due to an increasing amount of adults filtering in from the local community, in 2012 we set up a 3rd XI to cater for the increased demand. This team also provides a fantastic platform, on which to introduce our youngsters to senior cricket.

In 2013 we became ECB Clubmark accredited in record time.

This recognition from The England and Wales cricket board highlights that St Blazey is prioritising junior development and that we provide an opportunity for quality, community club cricket.


Most recently, recognising our pavilion needed updating, we undertook a full refurbishment, in a bid to make our surroundings more family friendly. This allows everyone at the club to watch cricket in comfortable surroundings.

What are we trying to achieve?

The purpose of our crowdfunder is to raise money to buy ground covers as illustrated below. Our grounds team work incredibly hard to produce circa 50 pitches a season and the Great British weather often plays havoc with our maintenance schedule. Further to this, covers increase our chances of getting games played when currently the odd shower would put paid to all our hard work during the week.

In order to reach the next tier of Cornish Cricket, covers are required under league rules.



Why get involved?

St Blazey Cricket Club is a great community asset, providing sporting opportunity to children and adults. If you are passionate about youth development or are simply keen to see your local club evolve; "covering the future" is a great cause to support.

You can be sure that whatever you pledge, your generosity will go a long way to help to #getthegameon.
