Grayshott Cricket Club has seen youth cricket played at Grayshott for over fifty years now, and continues to be a very popular club offering good quality coaching for young children providing a pathway through all ages of junior cricket and then ultimately into adult cricket where parents can have the once in a lifetime opportunity to play in the same side as their child. All our adult sides include a strong nucleus of current and former youth players, a credit to our coaching teams.
The club offers cricket to children from the age of 5 upwards irrespective of their level of ability, encouraging those children new to the game and providing a more competitve environment to children as they develop their cricket, all with the ultimate aim of children enjoying the great game of cricket. In 2017 the club launched an All Stars Cricket Centre for children aged 5 to 8 years of age which has grown considerably with over 90 children experiencing the great game for the first time in 2018. In 2019 All Stars returning to Grayshott for a ten week programme.
The club has over 260 junior members offering cricket to children in Grayshott and the surrounding areas including Beacon Hill, Bordon, Haslemere, Headley, Lindford, Liphook and Whitehill. The club has two excellent grounds at Grayshott and Broxhead Common, Lindford.
Running any youth organisation nowadays has to incorporate so many additional requirements. Cricket is no different and in 2005 Grayshott adopted the ECB’s “Safe Hands Policy” and achieved Clubmark accreditation. In 2018 the club renewed this accreditation until 2021.
My association with the club has been over 30 years and my love for the game and the club has always been that it is a family orientated one, but continuing to be a strong and friendly village cricket club. If you are looking to enrol your child at Grayshott please read on and do not hesitate to contact me via email or give me a call on 07826 523227, should you have any further questions.
