 New stretch target

If you are reading this, it means that you the community have helped us raise our target of £15,000 and we thank you. We knew we had the backing of the local community but this is above and beyond.

Can we now go that extra mile and achieve our new target. This will mean we can update and improve our facilities even further. 

These improvements would provide more opportunities for our local community to participate in our sport and become part of our cricket family.

Founded in 1847, Tynemouth Cricket Club is a warm and inclusive community club where individuals of all ages and backgrounds come together to indulge in the joy of cricket. With a commitment to fostering a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, the club is dedicated to providing opportunities for members to watch, play, and volunteer.



The club boasts an impressive range of teams, including five senior teams and six junior teams, two of which are exclusively for girls. This diverse offering ensures that there is a place for everyone, regardless of their age or skill level.


The club's extensive Junior section caters to over 150 junior players, starting from the tender age of 5. This comprehensive initiative aims to develop their skills and passion for the sport, setting them on a path towards cricketing excellence.

Why are we crowdfunding?

Our existing terrace has served us well but is starting to become unsafe in areas and is on several different levels

Our current outside terrace, which has been a valuable asset to our club, is unfortunately in a state of disrepair and requires a complete rebuild and to improve disabled access on to it. However, the costs associated with this project are substantial, and they have been further compounded by significant increases in energy costs and insurance premiums this year.
The financial challenges we face have been exacerbated by the impact of the recent pandemic. Due to restrictions and limitations, we were unable to operate at full capacity.

Despite these obstacles, we remain committed to creating an inclusive and accessible environment for all members and visitors. We are exploring various avenues to secure the necessary funding and support, including engaging with local businesses, and organising fundraising events. We believe that with the collective effort and support of our community, we can overcome these challenges and breathe new life into our terrace, ensuring it becomes a welcoming space for everyone, including disabled individuals.



Support from Sport England's Active Together Fund

Sport England will contribute £4,500 to our £15,000 target, as long as we raise the other £10,500 ourselves with well over 75 contributors and within 6 weeks.

How we’ll spend the money raised

The fundraising for the rebuild of the Outdoor Terrace Area and improved disabled access at Tynemouth Cricket Club will be spent in the following areas to bring about positive changes:

1. Terrace Redesign and Renovation: Redesigning and renovating the Outdoor Terrace Area, this includes enhancing the overall layout, aesthetics, and functionality of the space. The funds will be used to create a more inviting and enjoyable environment for cricket club members and visitors.

2. Accessibility Upgrades: Another important aspect of the project is improving disabled access on to the terrace area. These upgrades will promote inclusivity and make the terrace area accessible to everyone, regardless of their mobility.

3. Safety Enhancements: It is crucial to prioritise the safety of all terrace users. The funds raised will be used to implement safety enhancements such as non-slip flooring, handrails, and other measures to create a secure environment. These improvements will ensure that everyone can enjoy the terrace area without any safety concerns.

By investing the raised funds in these areas, we will be able to create a more welcoming, accessible, and enjoyable Outdoor Terrace Area at Tynemouth Cricket Club. The improvements will benefit not only the current club members but also attract new visitors, promote inclusivity, and enhance the overall experience for everyone involved in the cricket community. Your support and donations will directly contribute to these positive changes and make a lasting impact on the club and its members.


Community impact

We have over 200 players from the age of 5 to 60+ and with this, better facilities will benefit them all as well as also benefiting visitors and the local community

As well as cricket, we also host the following events at the cricket club:

Fireworks display attended by 3500+ spectators from the local community

Zumba, local schools who use the facilities for their sporting events, girls football and rugby tournaments.

We also host a number of parties, christenings, birthdays, weddings, meetings and training courses

During the Summer the ground is especially a place that the local community comes together to watch the cricket or to socialise
