Replacing safety equipment at the cricket ground, thereby creating a safer environment for our playing members.

This project was funded on 05 Sep 2020!

We need a new, lighter-weight batting cage to enable all our players to train in a safe and accessible environment. The existing cages are not the easiest to manoeuvre and in need of maintenance. Whilst ordinarily the renewal and maintenance of this equipment would be covered by club revenues, our decision to reduce player subscriptions due to Coronavirus has resulted in a funding shortage for a critical issue.

What we'll deliver:

  • Easily movable batting cage for all ages

Why it's a great idea:

The safety of our cricketers remains paramount at all times. We want to maintain and enhance a safe environment for practice across all ages -from 6 to 60.

Steps to get it done:

  • Place an order for the batting cage with a known supplier
