Warton Cricket Club By Warton Cricket Club

With increasing usage, many of Warton CCs facilities require a much needed refurbishment. This will enable Senior, Women's & Junior cricket to continue to grow to the benefit of the community.

This project was funded on 01 Sep 2023!

We are a small, friendly cricket club located in the village of Warton, near Carnforth. The club was founded in 1907 and have a long and proud history of cricket in the local community. Our committee recognise the importance that junior cricket plays in the future of our club so we are running both ECB programmes (All Stars & Dynamos) as well as entering an U9 and U11 side back into the junior leagues. This years programmes has just begun and we have 45 children signed up to participate in cricket this summer.

What we'll deliver:

  • Refurbish or replace our existing sight screens
  • Refurbish or replace our existing covers
  • Invest in a boundary rope

Why it's a great idea:

Warton CC takes its place in the community seriously and we do what we can to encourage people to take up the game of cricket for fitness, mental wellbeing and just being part of the cricket club family. Our club has faced numerous challenges over the past few years, including the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the rising cost of living, and struggles to keep a competitive mens team running. Your contributions will help with our strategy of making our ground a more welcoming and enjoyable space for all especially young players, which is key to secure the clubs long term existence.

Steps to get it done:

  • Use both local and manufacturer knowledge to decide what remedial work is required
  • Purchase parts to complete remedial work. Where not available, purchase brand new replacements.
  • Complete remedial work and install new purchases
