Expanding Juniors and Women’s Cricket

Puddletown Cricket Club By Puddletown Cricket Club

In the last year we’ve grown our Juniors and Women’s section from next to nothing to over 50. Funds have been impacted by Covid and we need to invest in more kit for the children and ladies.

This project was funded on 26 Sep 2020!

What do we need? More bats, balls, pads and stumps for our rapidly growing junior and ladies team. Why do we need it? We can’t hold back their infectious enthusiasm to play and learn - which in turn is bringing more juniors and women players into play sport, enjoying exercise and a community of fun. And inevitably Covid has sadly restricted fund raising potential this year. Why Puddletown? Puddletown was awarded Dorset Community Club of the year in 2019 in recognition of the approach to building a family and community centric Club.

What we'll deliver:

  • Women’s hardball kit bag For training and matches
  • Junior stumps, balls, training and protective kit
  • More ‘softballs’

Why it's a great idea:

The funding will help us sustain and grow junior and ladies participation in cricket with health and social benefits. Many of the women are taking up or returning sport for the first time - offering a welcoming and family environment is important to building an environment of confidence and support that helps engage players on a long term basis. Part of tHis is making sure we invest in coaching (we have spent money on accreditation for 6 coaches) and kit (this fund raise). Have a look at our Facebook pages (Puddletown Cricket Club and Puddletown Juniors, Women’s and Girls for a further sense of what we do and the Club’s community spirit.

Steps to get it done:

  • To have acquired the additional kit by the end of 2020
