Creating a cricket club for all at RugbyCC

by Rugby Cricket Club in Rugby, Warwickshire, United Kingdom

We did it
On 4th March 2022 we successfully raised £35,486 with 142 supporters in 42 days

To transform RugbyCC and give opportunities to all for participation and excellence in sport.

New stretch target

Buy more equipment to maximise the coaching experience on the new facilities such as a batting cage to go on the new astro turf pitch.

Provide even more coaching opportunities in the community providing coached cricket courses after school at primary, junior and secondary schools. This will require a paid qualified coach to deliver these sessions.



To provide great opportunities for all

Rugby Cricket Club has been successful in the men’s adult game – our first XI is in the Premier Division of the Warwickshire League and won the League in 2017.

Now we need your support to boost our junior and women’s game and improve and expand our training and playing facilities. With your help we can give greater opportunities to more people of all ages and backgrounds to participate in the sport we love.

Impact of Covid-19

In both 2020 and 2021 we were impacted by Covid-19 as cricket games were cancelled, we were unable to fundraise, whilst our costs to maintain the ground and buildings remained the same. In addition we had increased demand from new and existing players to take part in cricket. In addition to this in 2021 we focused on growing women and girls participation in cricket to meet the strong demand.

United by Birmingham 2022

The Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in 2022 feature Women's T20 cricket and is an opportunity to inspire more people to participate in and enjoy sport. 2022 will be the second year that we have run cricket for women and girls so we are excited about the Games coming to our region. This will give us the opportunity to promote our sport more widely and for our club to watch the Women's T20 at the Commonwealth Games and inspire more people to play cricket!

Expanding our reach

Our dedicated coaches and volunteers are ready to expand their programmes for juniors, 16-20 year-olds, women and girls and pupils at local schools in lower socio-economic areas. 

To secure our future plans and to bring the game to a wider community, we need your help.

What you will be funding:

New nets – two new net bays, doubling our net capacity

Improve our existing nets – bringing them up to current standards and improving safety

New artificial wicket – enabling us to run more matches and training sessions

New nets

We have two nets which are well used. Having two additional net bays would mean we could double our capacity and expand our training to different groups and abilities at the same time.

Improving our existing nets

Our current net bays become waterlogged and need a new surface to meet current standards, to allow for consistent bounce and to improve safety.

New artificial wicket

We plan to install a new artificial wicket on the opposite side of the ground from the square. This will mean we can run more matches on the ground and give us the ability to train on the same nights as junior matches – so further increasing our capacity.

Your support can help us reach our goal

Our goal is to raise £33,000 through this project. This will top up our existing fundraising to help us reach the £55,800 (inclusive of VAT) required for the improvements.
