We are raising funds to replace the all-weather nets at Horsforth Cricket Club.

Who are we?

Established in 1847 Horsforth Cricket club is one of the oldest cricket clubs in Yorkshire. We continue to play our cricket in the Airedale and Wharfedale Cricket League of which we became a founding member in 1936.

We have three senior cricket teams and a thriving junior section with age groups ranging from All Stars for 5 to 8 year olds onto U9s and all the way to U18. We are open and inclusive and passionate about growing the game for people of all ages and backgrounds. 

Why are we crowdfunding?

We are raising funds to replace the all-weather nets so that we can provide more opportunities for people to get active through cricket. The current nets were installed in 2009 and have outlasted their predicted lifespan, however they now need a complete refurbishment ahead of the 2025 season.

How we’ll spend the money raised

All monies raised will solely go towards the costs of refurbishing the all-weather cricket nets. 

Community impact

We provide opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to get active through cricket and also provide an important social aspect in the lives ope many of the families we support.
