Raising money to renew our net practice facility, enjoyed by hundreds of cricketers aged 5 to 75, and to support our community programmes

by Keith Harrington in Weybridge, Surrey, United Kingdom

Who are we?

Weybridge Cricket Club is a thriving community club at the heart of the town with over 800 active playing or social members, including more than 450 girls and boys.

2024 marks the centenary of Weybridge Cricket Club and there is a year of celebration and fund raising ahead. 

Our ethos is “One Club, at the Heart of the Weybridge Community”. Every part of the club is important:

  • The men’s section has produced many Surrey and England Cricketers. The First Team play in the Surrey Premier League, and by popular demand, a Fifth XI has been added in recent years. 2024 will see the relaunch of both Sunday and Vets teams!
  • The brilliant Ladies Section is growing rapidly. We are marching up the Surrey County divisions and are doing well in cup competitions too. We have two of our senior team now representing Surrey and South East Stars.
  • The Juniors Section is also booming! The club hosts an “ECB All Stars” programme for 5 to 7 year olds which has attracted 65 children to learn new cricket skills from local primary schools including St James, Manby Lodge, Charles Borromeo and Oatlands.
  • Boys and girls aged between 8 and 19 are just as enthusiastic, representing over 40 junior teams and enjoying notable success in both the leagues and cups.

Why are we crowdfunding?

We want to use our Centenary year to raise funds to renew vital practice facilities. With over 500 men, women and children aged from 5 to 75 playing at the club, these facilities help develop cricketers to maximise their potential. They are in urgent need of refurbishment.

How we’ll spend the money raised

The money raised will be used to fund the renewal of our net practice area. Parts of the current nets are unusable and in need of refurbishment.The nets form a key part of the development of cricketers from across the community. The renewed facility will be ECB approved and will have three batting/bowling lanes.

Funds will also be used in support access to cricket for all within our junior section, which continues to go from strength to strength.

Community impact

Weybridge Cricket Club is situated in the heart of the town on the Weybridge green. The club plays a vital role in looking after the green for all to enjoy, for example adding undersoil irrigation and drainage to help manage both drought and flooding. 

Our juniors programme is popular with kids from all backgrounds in Weybridge, providing access to a brilliant outdoor summer sport and to indoor nets across the winter. 

Your support is also likely to attract matched funding from other charitable and community organisations, multiplying the positive impact we can make in the Weybridge community.

How you can play your part

There are four simple ways to help us reach our target, and make this project a reality.

1. Make a donation. Don’t delay if you’re going to support us because momentum is key to our success! There are loads of rewards already given by local businesses for you to claim based on your donation amount, from £2 upwards!

2. Spread the word. Share our project on your social media pages and tell the world to get behind us! The more people we reach, the more support we will get.

3. Offer rewards. Get involved if you are a local business by donating things we can offer to our supporters. We will give you a shout out!

4. Fundraise for us. If you want to run your own fundraiser – maybe a sponsored activity or similar – use the 'contact project' button at the top of our page to let us know. Setting up your own page only takes a few minutes and you won’t need any bank details. Just a fun idea!
