Junior Cricket Update - Bookings Open

18 Jun 2020

Dear Members and Parents
Following on from my earlier update we're now ready to take bookings to the small group coaching sessions - the coaching, as in previous years, will be delivered by Future Legends. 
We plan to run sessions for boys and girls from u9 to u15 spread across Tuesday Evenings and Sundays. We have tried to maximise the available sessions and have set the groups up in line with the number of members in each age group. We have a little bit of flexibility and should demand for certain groups exceed capacity we'll look to accommodate accordingly. And a reminder this is for the first 4-week block, we expect the guidelines to change as the rules on social distancing are reviewed, so we'll reassess plans as soon as we hear from the ECB. Again apologies to the u6 to u8 age groups that we are unable to run coaching sessions at this time. 

Due to social distancing rules and the guidelines on capacity, existing net bookings on Tuesday evenings and Sundays will have to be cancelled - we're sorry for any inconvenience this causes but hopefully have your understanding why this is necessary.  The nets are also undergoing maintenance on Monday 22nd and Tuesday 23rd June so bookings will also be cancelled.

Before booking please familiarise yourself with the guidelines, especially on the use of equipment, here:
Players will need their own equipment including their own ball:

U9 use an incrediball (plastic training ball)
U10 - U13 use hardball size 4.75oz
U14 - U15 use hardball size 5.5oz

U9-11 use an incrediball (plastic training ball)
U12-U15 use hardball size 4.75oz
Booking is essential to comply with the guidelines. 
PLEASE ONLY BOOK YOUR CHILD INTO ONE GROUP and select the group appropriate to their age group. Note some of the age-groups are split over different session times due to the restrictions on group size and the number of groups we have capacity for.  

When booking the individual sessions will display a price - members who have paid / pay their subscription for 2020 can remove this charge using discount code: OXW561 
Given this marks the start of cricket for the season and we plan to run into the summer, it would be a great help if you could pay your subs rather than paying for the individual sessions. 
Booking can be made through this site:
