Whitley Bay Cricket Club By Whitley Bay Cricket Club

We are renovating our facilities so that they can inspire a new generation of members once the Covid 19 pandemic has retreated - giving new opportunities to people after lockdown.

Whitley Bay Delivery stage

This project was funded on 18 Jun 2020!

We are looking for funding to help our club through this most uncertain of times. We are improving our facilities but we need help as we have no way of generating funds without membership or match day bar take and match fees. The aim of the project is to provide a safe, secure place that members of the public will enjoy using once this pandemic is over. To add to this we are setting up opportunities for young people to try Cricket and for older people to return to the sport. We are an inclusive, friendly club based near the centre of Whitley Bay.

What we'll deliver:

  • Improved changing rooms
  • Safe ground for all to play on
  • Pleasant surroundings

Why it's a great idea:

Improved changing facilities for all. Improved surface to play on. Opportunities for improved physical and mental wellbeing. A new hub in the local community.

Steps to get it done:

  • Improving the square for use by the middle of June/ Early July (Covid dependent)
  • Open day to recruit new members and view improvements - July (Covid dependent)
