Please see the following message from one of the tennis coaches, and do think about purchasing your tree from him as the sports club will get a share of the profit and this will help us run the fantastic facility we have.

Dear Members,


Once again it is the time of the year when we start thinking about Christmas. And with that of course THE CHRISTMAS TREE!!


I'm very pleased to announce that you don't have to go far to get it this year as for the first time  I will be selling fresh Christmas trees at our club.


It's the most popular Nordman Fir with non dropping needles in various sizes.

10% discount for club members and a donation from the sales will be made to the club.

16 Nov 2014 : Colts Membership 2015

Dear Parents, Boys and Girls,


Welcome to 2015 junior cricket at Gerrards Cross. It seems a long way away off from the warm evenings and the boys and girls playing cricket. Over the last few months we have reviewed the coaching structure and we very much hope the changes we have made will benefit everyone.  We are beginning to look at the various leagues/age groups and decide what teams to enter next year.


As you may be aware Mike Logan our Colts Chairman for the past 3 years has stood down, a big thank you is due to Mike for all of his hard work. We have used this opportunity to restructure the colts section, therefore all cricketing/coaching matters will be arranged by the Head Coach Sam Bracey, and membership will again be dealt with by Sabeeha Khan, along with Katy Aarons who will continue her role as Child Welfare Officer. This leaves us to find a fixtures coordinator as a matter of urgency, if you feel you can help please contact me.


Team Managers U9-U17

Over the last few years we have supported teams with a coach/umpire at their matches, something unique as at all other local clubs this is done by parents.  From 2015 we will be utilising our coaches at the age group coaching sessions held at the club in the evenings.  Therefore each team will require a team manager along with a match day scorer & umpire (often this is one person). We will be looking to run basic umpiring / scoring courses before the season starts if required.  Once the teams/squads have been confirmed then fixtures and contacts will be provided to each team manager; in the event a match is cancelled then the team manager will liaise with the fixtures coordinator to arrange a new date. Without these key roles in place we may have to withdraw team/s from league/cup competitions.


Membership renewal 2015

Folllowing a review of membership administration procedures and that 1/2 of applications in the last season were either late, incomplete or incorrectly filled in we have redesigned the application form. This is now 1 sheet and will need to be printed and completed and returned with fees. Please remember to sign the form. We have also included the option to pay by BACS, this payment must be in full stating your surname and date as a reference.


Bucks Cricket Board require us to register all our teams by Sunday 18th January. In order to plan for the 2015 season it is essential we know who is rejoining. All renewals must be returned by Thursday 15th January 2015. After this point those on the waiting list will be contacted and your place cannot be guaranteed if the completed forms and fees are not returned.


Training – the U6s will train Sunday between 10am-11am, the U7s-9s will train on a Sunday morning 9.45am-11.15am. The U10s and U11’s will train on Sunday morning between 11.30am-1pm. Weekday training 6.30pm-8pm Monday U12, Tuesday U13, Wednesday master classes & specific age groups as required, Thursday U17 & Seniors , Friday U14 & U15’s. At the end of July, when the colts season is over, we will again run the Friday club nights, with a focus on fun games/social evening - also an opportunity for parents to relax at the club!


Nets – we are planning to run some camps during the Easter holidays, details to follow.


Diary date – Training for U6’s-U11’s starts Sunday 19th April, with the colts starting from Monday 20th April. GXCC ten10 Sunday 5th July (U10A’s-12’s only)


If you have any questions, please get in with touch:


Have a great Christmas & New Year and I will see you on the 19th April.


Kind regards,


Charles Hunt

12 Nov 2014 : 2015 Season
Evening all,

It's that time of year again where preparation begins for the coming season...

Some of you may be aware, but for those that aren't, myself and Matt Watson are standing for the 1st and 2nd team captaincies respectively, with this (hopefully) to be agreed at the AGM in a couple of weeks. 

However, some dates should be circulated before then to get them into your diary regarding pre season training. There is a change of venue for the indoor nets this year which sees us moving to Dr Challoners Grammar School in Amersham. The dates are as follows:

Thurs 5th February 
Thurs 12th February 
Thurs 5th March
Thurs 12th March
Thurs 19th March
Thurs 26th March

The sessions will include 2 nets and will run from 8 - 9.30pm each night. The cost will be £5 per person. Anyone who is looking to play cricket, in any team, next year is welcome to come along. Equally, if you know of anyone looking to play, please pass on this information and either mine or Matt's contact details.

That's it for now, put the dates in the diary! Hopefully see you at the AGM, if not in the near future/ on the 5th Feb!
