It is shaping up to be a very busy summer at Bredon Cricket Club.
As well as our usual schedule of league senior and junior matches, we have several Sunday friendly matches.
Sunday games are always popular with spectators, and our bar at Hill Close is open whenever we play at home. There is a warm welcome for anyone who wants to come along to spend a relaxing afternoon watching a game.
A couple of derby games have just been added to our Sunday home fixtures. On July 24 we play a team from the Crown Inn at Kemerton, then take on Bredon Star Rugby Club on August 7. Better make sure the bar is well stocked for that one!
Nearer at hand, some of our younger players are taking part in an Under 9s Festival on Sunday (June 19).
There are also some exciting social events planned.
On Saturday, July 2, we have a Charity Race Night. All the fun of the racecourse without leaving the comfort of the clubhouse!
Then on Saturday, July 23, it’s our Eighties and Nineties School Disco Night. Roll back the years, enjoy all those old tunes, and buy selected drinks at 1990s prices.
Other dates for your social diary include our Family Fun Day on Sunday, July 31 (more details soon), and annual club dinner on Saturday, September 24.
As well as all that, we welcome some sides for mid-week games at Hill Close in July.
On Tuesday, July 19, Worcestershire Over 60s will play Gloucestershire Over 60s at our ground (start 1pm), while on Tuesday, July 26, we will put out a team against Stanton-by-Dale (start 2pm).
Oh, and don’t forget we now have a wide-screen TV in our clubhouse. It’s a terrific place to watch the Euro 2016 football (we’re open Thursday and Friday evenings, Saturday afternoons, and most Sunday afternoons throughout the summer).
