We provide sporting opportunities to people of all ages and run two senior sides, one ladies team and two junior sides We we have junior evenings on a Friday night which is open to all & regularly attracts over 100 girls & boys from 5 years up over from the local community and this coming year we have been participating in the ECB cricket all-stars & Dynamos programme . The facilities are also used by a variety of local groups & organisations plus the community for social functions Weddings, Christenings and Birthday Parties plus Tai Chi Class, Warkfest an annual music festival and the Local History Society
The Effects of COVID-19 on WarkworthCC:
The pandemic has shattered sporting communities across the country and WCC is no exception. As a result of restrictions, 2020 was a tough year financially for our club. With the complete loss of income from our functions business, we now look to fundraise to ensure the financial security of our cricketing community and the continuation of our club’s improvements plan.
The Projects you are Funding:
- To Create a New Landscaped Outdoor Seating Area at Rear of Clubhouse
- Access point via rear wall directly into lounge with increased light into Clubhouse
- Upgrades to lounge and Bar areas
Why We Need More Seating:
In addition to providing better facilities to our players, spectators and the community who use/hire the facility we want to improve their experience of WCC and in the world we now live in access to outdoor seated space is essential and something we currently have very little. Our outdoor spectator seating is very small and cramped at the front as you can see so without encroaching onto the playing surface so we need to look at other areas around the clubhouse.
We aim to continue our history of hosting events at our ground, from cricket specific County & League match days to live music events and Weddings
Our Smaller Members:
An important part of continued investment is our junior set up this will create an wonderful area for their parents & guardians to sit and relax while their budding young cricketers learn the game
Our Club in the Community:
Our club strives to provide competitive cricket and a community hub for local people. With your help, we can continue going from strength to strength and increase the availability and quality of the sporting opportunities available to those in our community and greatly improve our facility in one of the UK's most iconic cricket settings
