The Juniors are the heartbeat of the club and the future of the game.
We have a thriving junior cricket section which is rapidly expanding - but always looking for new players.
If you are interested in your child joining us for the 2019 season - whether or not they have previous cricketing experience - please get in touch.
We welcome boys and girls of 6+, with or without previous cricketing experience. In the youngest players we develop basic cricketing skills and a love of the game. With older players we work on individual programmes to develop individual players, focusing on applying skills in real match situations. Our programme includes weekly Friday evening and Sunday morning practices, and for older players, competitive matches within the Middlesex league setup.
Summer practices are at our Chiswick ground on Riverside Drive, and are on Sundays from 9-11am (primary age) and on Fridays from 6-8pm (secondary age). They take place from late April till July. New players have to register before taking part, but we are always happy for new players to have a try-out week before committing to the club. We have a well-equipped ground with a new three-lane net facility, mobile net cage and artificial wicket as well as plenty of space for practising batting, bowling and fielding. Practices are carefully structured to keep everyone involved and interested. Whites are not required for practice.
Junior matches take place at Under 10, U11, U13, U15, U17 and U19 age groups. These are mainly on weekday evenings at 6pm, either at our ground or away at the other team's ground. All the older ages group matches start after exams. Selection is by merit and organised by age group managers. Whites are required for matches - U17 and above require Chiswick green match tops for games. Club branded kit (training and match-wear) plus all necessary equipment are available from our online store.
