Cricket club – spring has sprung


As we enter spring, Rye Cricket Club emerges ready for its 270th season of cricket in Rye.

Adult nets have been taking place on Friday evenings 7:15pm – 8:45pm at Claremont Senior School at Bodiam. With four nets available there is plenty of space and the nets provide an excellent place to prepare. New members are welcome to try out in the nets, just £5 per session.

Last Thursday the colts section started hardball at Rye Sports Centre.

6pm – 7pm: Age group school years 4 / 5 / 6
7pm – 8pm: Age group school years 7 / 8 / 9 / 10
Places still available. £40 for eight sessions.

The girls’ sessions and the softball sessions due to start on March 7 have been delayed until April 4, 6pm – 8pm, due to an overbooking by the sports centre. We now start Tuesday April 4, for four weeks. £20. For new participants it is £10.

There are all sorts of preparations going on for the season. Meetings have been held with Rother to plan the pre-season rolling, square preparation and care of the outfield with rolling at both Rye and Icklesham grounds.

The final details have been agreed with the two overseas players arriving for the season. The club is looking forward to welcoming them as part of the club, and their contributions to supporting the running of the club.

The preparation means we hit the ground running on April 1 when Rye welcome Cowdray to the Salts as the first of three pre-season games.

We are looking for new members, so if you are interested in finding a game of cricket and a welcoming social environment then contact Martin Blincow 07535 482006 /
