Summer coming to the cricket club

This winter, Rye Cricket Club has been working harder than usual in preparation for the forthcoming season. In the last week the pavilion was redecorated over 8 days by local painter Graham Sargent who has done an excellent job. Whilst Graham Sargent was working on the inside, local builder Mick Lansley was building 2 new steps into the pavilion, with improved accessibility, and most importantly constructing a new disabled ramp.

This work has been supported from club funds but also the internal work is thanks to a grant from the England and Wales Cricket Board to support the return of cricket after Covid. The external accessibility work was supported by a grant from the Rother Community Fund and a legacy from life long club member and supporter, Richard Merricks.

As British summer time returns so does cricket on the Salts. Adult outdoor nets commence on Wednesdays from 6pm; all players are welcome to use the two mobile nets.

Junior cricket returns with hardball nets on Tuesday May 3 from 6-8pm. Softball sessions return on Friday 13 May. All Stars Cricket for 7-9 Year olds is at 6-7pm and 7-8pm is Cricket Dynamos for 9-13 year olds. The club is holding a signing on night for juniors on Friday 6 May 6-7.30pm at the Salts. There will be a free taster session of softball cricket for boys and girls to see if they would like to sign up for 8 weeks of fun. Parents and carers can enjoy the newly refurbished pavilion, and the social atmosphere of an evening on the Salts.
