We are planning a series of events to celebrate 150 years of Grittleton Cricket Club. This page will be updated as plans form.
Race Night: Saturday 21st April 2018
Come along to the village hall for this social occasion: Sponsor a race, Own a Horse (After all both England opening test bowlers do) or just have a flutter on the races. Hosted by our experienced race night organisers, the evening will include a meal and a bar will be available.
Village Cricket Festival: Saturday 7th July 2018.
This is the main event – fun day for all the family based around cricket . Amongst ideas for activities are:
– Recreation of the iconic cricketers 1868 picture using 2018 players and villagers
– A (Short) game of cricket using 1868 laws (e.g. No boundaries….!)
– Cricket challenges for kids and adults: How far can you throw a cricket ball, Can you beat the bowling machine?
– Victorian Cricket Tea
– Kwik Cricket competition, volleyball, croquet etc
– Beer and food
– Evening celebration – possibly including live music.
MCC Match & Cricket Dinner – Sunday 2nd September.
We are delighted to welcome the Marylebone Cricket Club for an all day match on the 2nd September at Grittleton. Come along and watch.
We hope to unveil the new club clock at some point during this day. As the MCC game is a “timed game”, it will be needed.
In the same evening in the village hall we are hosting a gathering of current and ex players, vice presidents and anyone else who is interested in cricket. Reminiscence and celebration. – What was the best game you played in? What was your best performance? Your most memorable moment?
