    Something for Everyone

At Caddington Cricket Club as well as competetive cricket, we like to offer the opportunity for those who want to play a less pressured version of the game. Each season we have a full programme of Sunday fixtures against local teams.

These matches are perfect for those who don’t wish to play league cricket, those who are looking to brush up their skills for the league programme or to give match experience to our up and coming junior members.

Our Sunday side tends to feature a diverse mix of abilities and ages. Whilst we always look to win our matches and ensure that they are played in the a competetive manner, Sunday cricket is generally more of a light hearted affair than our league cricket, with the emphasis on encouraging team members to take a full part in all aspects of the game.

We are fully committed to producing good young cricketers, and to this end we often use Sunday fixtures to introduce our younger members to senior cricket, encouraging them to develop their skills by giving them responsibility with the bat or the ball.

We also have a number of members who enjoy the more relaxed atmosphere of our Sunday fixtures, and it’s also a great way to get back into cricket if you haven’t played for a while.

In addition to our Sunday fixtures, we also play several midweek games in a friendly capacity. These tend to be on Wednesday evenings, over the course of several weeks during mid-summer. Generally these matches consist of sixteen eight-ball overs, and are usually action packed, high scoring affairs.
If you decide to join the club on a ‘pay as you play’ basis, the cost of Sunday friendly cricket is £10 per match, with midweek cricket costing £5 per game. We offer the option of paying a one off all inclusive fee prior to the beginning of each season (£120 for the 2014 season) which covers all forms of cricket for the period, and provides great value.
