Help us build for the future and recover from the impact of coronavirus.



Like all sports clubs, we have suffered as a result of coronavirus, but are determined to recover and build for the future.


Who We Are

We are a community cricket club, run by volunteers with a vision of providing affordable cricket to everyone regardless of age or ability. 

As a club, we believe in promoting a culture of fair play and developing our adults and juniors to be the best they can. 

With an ever growing junior section we are aiming to give them even more opportunities and includes encouraging young people of the benefits of sport and exercise, helping them create a lifelong affiliation with the game through positive experiences.

How You Can Help

St Ives & Warboys Cricket Club have set up this Crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to help cover the loss of income as a result of coronavirus and help build for the clubs future.

As well as hoping for voluntary donations, we also have a range of awards that we hope will be of interest to not only members but also to the wider community. Details of these are shown on the right and our thanks go to all those who have kindly donated items in support of our fundraising.

Our target is to raise £6000 in total, and the great news is that Sport England will provide £3000 of this as soon as we ourselves reach £3000 through donations and our rewards scheme.

Please help support our fundraising as this will make a huge difference and really put us on a firm footing for the future development and progression of the club.


How We Will Use The Money Raised

All money raised will be used to improve the clubs facilities and provide additional opportunities to play cricket.

This includes

  • A new venture into local schools to provide an introduction to cricket
  • Indoor cricket coaching & matches to address the loss of cricket this summer
  • Summer softball tournaments for our younger members
  • Family fun days to get the wider community involved
  • Equipment purchases for use in our training sessions
  • Training up new coaches to assist with our junior training sessions

Our Place In The Local Community

We believe that working within and for the whole community is key.

We have strong relationships with a number of other local community sports and charitable groups, working with them to provide community events and raise funds for worthy causes. Aligned to this is the building of a strong presence in both St Ives and Warboys for players, parents and spectators alike.
