Bredon under 11s lose to Tanworth and Camp Hill by four runs

junior cricket batsman
So close! Tanworth and Camp Hill Maroons beat Bredon under 11s by just four runs

There was a nail-biting final over as Bredon under 11s batted flamboyantly in a last-ditch effort to reel in Tanworth and Camp Hill Maroons.

Only some fine fielding by the Maroons preserved their lead, and the match ended 249-245.

It was, overall, a solid performance by Bredon.

Fine performance: Bredon under 12s played superbly against Exhall and Wexford

Bredon under 12s put on a first class display away against Exhall and Wexford.

Bredon batted first and scored 303 for two wickets.

Exhall and Wexford were 211 for 16 wickets.

It was an excellent batting, bowling and fielding performance by all eight players.

There was lots of encouragement, and all the players helped each other in what was a great team effort.

They are really taking in the training drills on a Friday night, and learning the skills that are being implemented on match days.

A massive pat on the back to the under 12s team. Well done, lads!

You can bet our race night is going to be a blast!

We are hosting an exciting evening of racing at our Hill Close clubhouse on Saturday, July 2.

You will be able to stake money on the outcome of recorded races played on a large TV screen. The selection is purely dependent on chance. There are no odds or form to complicate your selection.

The evening’s organiser is a firm that specialises in this sort of event. It brings along all the equipment needed, including eight recorded races, betting slips as well as an experienced master of ceremonies.

There is a proper commentary with each race, and numbers appear on screen to show the audience the position of their horse as the race progresses.

Our bar will, of course, be open throughout.

It all makes for an evening that re-creates the thrilling atmosphere of a visit to the racecourse, and will be a valuable boost to the club’s coffers.

Bredon Cricket Club under 9s opened their season with a narrow defeat at Dumbleton on Sunday.

Playing in bright sunshine at one of the county’s most attractive grounds, our boys batted first and scored 284 runs.

Dumbleton, though, were marginally the better team and ended the match winning by 11 runs.

Eighties and Nineties school disco night at Bredon Cricket Club

Turn back time to those glory days of the Eighties and Nineties at Bredon Cricket Club!

We’ll be playing some of the biggest hits of the two decades at our school disco retro night on Saturday, July 23.

But it won’t be just the music from the past you’ll be enjoying… we’ll be selling selected drinks at 90s prices too (though we can’t guarantee to have Hooch, Lambrini, or Skol lager in stock).

Why not really let your hair down and come in fancy dress? The theme is 1980s and 1990s school disco. There’ll be a prize for the best male and female outfits.

Bredon Cricket Club has an idyllic rural setting at the foot of Bredon Hill, and is just four-and-a-half miles from Tewkesbury and seven miles from Pershore.

On a warm night in July it’s the perfect place to remember those  uh, oh summer nights!

Tickets cost £5 on the door, and the bar opens at 7pm.
