We need to replace the old cricket nets which are falling apart. The new nets will allow us to train more juniors in safer surroundings.

Who are we?

Rudgwick Cricket Club was formed way back in 1849 and we continue to play our cricket on the King George V Playing Fields. We are an open, friendly cricket club playing in the Sussex Leagues and also the T20 Sussex Slam. We have a large junior section training on a Friday evening and have several junior teams, both boys and girls, playing in their own leagues. Some photos of the Friday night sessions can be seen below:

Why are we crowdfunding?

Our current net facilities are over 20 years old and unfortunately have reached the end of their lifespan. They are also non complaint with current ECB guidelines.

How we’ll spend the money raised

We will be removing the old nets and getting a brand new, 2 bay, fully enclosed cricket practice facility. We have obtained 4 quotes for such a facility and the best has come in at £41,754. We have already raised £27,000 and have obtained a grant for £5,000 so are looking to raise the remaining £10,000. Any extra raised will go towards a new mower and roller for the club.

Community impact

The nets are located on the Parish Council playing fields and will be open to use for anyone who is interested in playing cricket locally, whether a club member or not. We will actively encourage their use for the local schools to aid the development of cricket in the junior years.
