Ardingly Cricket Club

Why are we crowdfunding?

Ardingly Cricket Club is upgrading! We are growing and looking to enhance our offer to the community. The pavilion we use has undergone a massive refurbishment and we would like to support this by adding some essential upgrades within the community room and look at upgrading some very old and tired club equipment. 

Like many clubs we have struggled financially over the last few years, this is due to the cost of living crisis, the lack of match fees due to bad weather and the general financial demand being placed on a small village club. During this time we have been keen to grow as a club, expand our offer of cricket and have even have even offered free junior sessions to the village, with some extra funding we could deliver more and more community activities with fresh equipment and an even more inviting facility.

How we’ll spend the money raised

Improving the social room at the pavilion by supporting in the renovation (e.g. Sofa's, kitchen equipment, social seating outside) and purchase of a new electronic scoreboard for the club. 

Community impact

With new additions to the social room and with the club having upgraded equipment we plan to entice more players from the village and beyond to join the club, engage in social activities and develop junior/woman talent locally.
