Bude Cricket Club aims to grow the club through starting a junior section and building a fixed practice net facility

by Bude North Cornwall Cricket Club in Bude, Cornwall, United Kingdom

Who are we?

Bude Cricket Club is over 150years old and set on an idyllic location a few yards from the stunning Summerleaze beach.  We have two men's teams in Cornwall East Divisions.  

It is a firm favorite with locals and holiday makers who can sit and relax in the summer sun watching the beautiful game of cricket. 

Bude is an amazing sporting town, famous for it’s, football, rugby, surfing and lifesaving clubs.  

Bude Cricket club lost its junior section during the Covid period but aims to bring it ack this year.  Developing a junior cricket section will help young people improve there fitness during the summer months and build upon core fitness and mental well-being but also help them with confidence self-esteem and give young people a sense of achievement.  

 

 

 

Why are we crowdfunding?

In order to build the Junior section it needs financial backing to do this.  This will help provide adequate training facilities including; a fixed net, safety sporting equipment (helmets, pads, gloves and bats) and training aids.

How we’ll spend the money raised

Bude Cricket Club is crowd funding to build a new Fixed All Weather Practice Facility.  

Community impact

Bude Cricket Club has not had a Junior section for several years and is somewhat remote from other towns’, it takes up to 30min for people in Bude to travel to other cricket clubs.  Developing the cricket club in Bude for young people and adults, will help to provide a center for sports but also help reduce carbon footprints within the Cornwall area.  

Building a Junior section will help improve the fitness and physical activity of children and adults and help to build a community around the cricket club, offering people on low incomes the opportunity to engage in a sport for life.
