Ovington Cricket Club provide opportunities for people of all ages to play Cricket. We have a flourishing Junior section with over 100 young players, and three senior sides who play competitive cricket on a Saturday. We also have a team on a Wednesday night that play in the Foss Evening League.
2021 Junior Training
Under 9’s (Current Year 4 and below)
Similar to last year – we’re roughly splitting the pool of players among two groups, with a different WhatsApp group and training day session for each.
Friday’s 17:45 – 19:00 is the designated day for the “Championship” Group. This is aimed at mostly those who have already experienced an Under 9’s match and/or are in Years 3 or 4 (but girls also Y5). First session is Friday 9th April.
Monday’s 17:45 – 19:00 is for the “Development” Group. This is aimed at those in Years 1 or 2 and/or those who haven’t yet played a match and are building up to maybe doing that this year. First session is Monday 5th April (Easter Monday).
Some players may end up swapping between the groups during the year or even overlapping both. This is absolutely fine. The priority is outdoor fun and enjoyment of cricket.
We’re entering three teams into local Under 9’s leagues – two teams in the Championship League and one team in the Development League. More info on matches in months to come, but all are 6-a-side, with a soft ball, and structured to allow equal participation from all.
Under 11’s, 13’s and 15’s.
Their training will take place on Friday evenings, from 17:45 until 19:30 approximately. The club have many different teams at this age-groups and your child is more than welcome to come and give the club a trial.
New players to junior training are very much welcome! Details of the membership fees for this season are pending at this time and we’re more than happy for your children to attend a couple of sessions before joining or re-joining the club. Feel free to come along on the day, but if you have any questions, drop us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us through the website/Facebook icon.
Ovington have four senior sides, many junior teams from Under 9 to Under 15’s and are a ECB Clubmark Accredited organisation. With a club established in the 1920’s and a Junior section for approaching thirty years, we’re a great club to get involved with and we pride ourselves on priding players of all abilities the opportunity to play Cricket.
2021 Senior Training
Senior Training is not on one designated time during the week in 2021 due to the junior cricket schedule. We do however, aim to have at least one net per week. We run three weekend senior sides and one midweek team, and there are always plenty of opportunities to play! For those interested, please contact us via the Facebook link to be directed to one of club captains.
