Cricket in Newquay:
March 2021- We are very sad to announce the passing of a genuine club legend, Nigel Dawes. Nigel’s funeral took place this week with 8 club members and parents in attendance. He will be sorely missed. Please read the tribute in the side bar. †
The committee has set the AGM for March as we have to hold the meeting and sadly it will be the on-line zoom talk. This has not detracted from the core message that we are looking for more people to become involved, so please contact Chairman Dave if you’re interested!
“Newquay Cricket Club strives to offer cricketing excellence for all standards in an enjoyable, safe and competitive environment”
As one of the top clubs in Cornwall, we offer cricket of a standard that will suit everybody – all players young and old with four senior Saturday league teams, a friendly XI for Sunday and midweek fixtures against other Cornish teams and touring sides visiting our lovely town, an up and coming ladies team and three junior groups.
For all other information, please contact one of the names below for the human touch or look through our site. We play at the Newquay Sports Centre which boasts excellent modern and fully compliant in- and outdoor sporting facilities as well as easy spectator and disabled access. We have two cricket squares, an all weather wicket, outdoor 3 lane practice nets, superb changing rooms and a sports bar. All prospective cricketers are welcome – regardless of ability! We are especially keen to encourage ladies to play cricket. All successful clubs need happy volunteers! Please view the Volunteers page to register your interest!
After a peculiar season in 2020 where owing to the Covid precautions the CCL season was redrafted, the season 2021 would have essentially started with the 2020 league structures had Covid and changing club circumstances not intervened, but the club first team will be playing in County Division 1 in season 2021. The seconds will be staying where they are following an inconsistent 2019 season in Division 3 East. Following the Div 2-6 end of season meeting held at Bodmin, clubs have strongly requested a return to 12 team divisions which may well have a strong impact on the make of the lower areas of the league! The 3rd team will be playing in division 5 East and the 4ths will be playing in Div 6 Central.
ECB ALL STARS!!
Following on last year’s stunning success with our All-Stars for the 5-7 year olds (and their family), we will be continuing with this in 2021 for ALL youngsters in that age group. Lead activator will be club stalwart and retired Head Teacher, Mike Jelbert. As well as looking forward to another fun filled season for the little ones, Mike, because of the success, is also looking for more people to help on the evening sessions. So 8 sessions at one hour each to work with your children – all you have to do is submit your name, date of birth and email address so we can clear you with DBS. There is also a more formal course which lasts for one evening in Truro which gives you the activator title. Most important is the commitment to help! More information and how to sign up is to be found using the following link – ECB All Stars – and will provide a fun-packed introduction for youngsters (and their family!) into the great game of cricket, a big part of our social fabric!
We are excited about the prospects for the coming season! Local hospitality and entertainment group, Wax, has taken over the running of the bar as Newquay Sports Bar. And there is a proactive management team running the Sports Centre now. The future looks bright so following our own highly successful season running the bar, we pass over from a position of strength.
