An ambitious project to support our growing women's cricket section by providing changing facilities and an enhanced Clubhouse environment

by Portsmouth Cricket Club in Southsea, England, United Kingdom

1604571197_11187177_940810815963692_1042463467860074690_o.jpgWe are a community-focused, volunteer-led, cricket club that cares deeply about cricket in Portsmouth, increasing participation in the game and the health and mental benefits of sport more generally.  

As a Club at the heart of the Portsmouth community, we are proud to operate 4 adult Saturday teams, a Sunday XI and a cup winning Women's W10 team. We are particularly proud of junior or colts section which supports more than 250 young people every year. Each Friday there is a fun training evening at which about 100 of these colts and their families attend and we run a barbecue, with coaching provided by ECB Level 2 coaches, many of whom play in our 1st and 2nd teams. These Friday nights are often the first step of a child’s cricket journey with Portsmouth CC and the wider sport. In addition to the training, we provide opportunities for our young people to play competitive games with teams from u9’s all the way to u19s.

We also run the ECB accredited All Stars programme aimed at 5-7-year-olds. In 2019 it was attended by 50 children. 

Thanks to the hard work of our coaches and managers we are attracting more and more girls/women to the game of cricket and several of them have been selected to play at District level and for Hampshire - Perhaps, one day soon England! In the meantime, the club has an aspiration of growing the number of girls and women playing cricket, developing a second W10 team and longer-term a women's hardball team.

In part, because of this tremendous success and growth over recent years, our clubhouse, which was built in the early 1970s, is no longer fit for purpose. In particular, there are no changing facilities for our girls and women players and no disabled toilet. We want to rectify this!

Working with a brilliant local architect, who donated his time and expertise for free, we have drawn up plans that will create three flexible changing rooms, that can be accessed from a separate corridor along with modern toilet and shower facilities.

At the same time, we are taking the opportunity to replace the cladding on the exterior of the building and make some other improvements that will benefit all our members.

These ambitious plans have already attracted support from our members and the local community and can be viewed on the Club's website, but here is a sneak preview...
