Now we’ve all had enough of a break... it’s time to dust off the kit and prepare for the 2020 season with our programme of winter nets.
For the women, it’s much the same format as last year with Sadiq Hassan returning to coach on a Sunday afternoon at Alleyn's School. The cost is £10 (or £5 for concessions) and run every Sunday from 12 January to
29 March. All new members are welcome so please do spread the word to your contacts.
For the men, the format has been tweaked to provide better value and raise the standard following feedback from you, the members. Whilst we have been loathe to split the sessions and divide the men’s section, the weight of numbers at the winter sessions have led to overcrowded nets and little chance to improve. To address this, we are obtaining coaches and will split the sessions as follows:
Every Sunday from 12 January to 22 March
11am to 1pm at Dulwich Prep School.
£10 per session (£5 for concessions)
Audience: those who have represented the 4th XI, 5th XI or 6th XI in 2019 and those playing friendly cricket
Every Tuesday from 14 January to 24 March
7.30pm to 9.00pm at Dulwich Prep School.
£7.50 per session (£3.75 for concessions) - reflecting the shorter time
Audience: those who have played 1st XI, 2nd XI or 3rd XI in 2019 and older juniors (U15-U18)
We will review success of the new format on a regular basis, adjust where necessary and welcome feedback as we go. Hopefully we’ll be able to use the larger facility at the Kent County Ground in Beckenham to have club-wide training in April but more detail on that closer to the time.
As ever, we expect a number of new faces at all these sessions so please extend your customary warm welcome to any prospective members.
