For the U11s age group is the first opportunity to play competitive cricket. With the emphasis very much on fun and participation, our U11s play on Sunday mornings with coffee and bacon butties available to parents for home matches! To ensure that all players participate, ‘pairs’ cricket is played where a pair of batsmen bat for 4 overs and simply swap ends if a wicket falls. 5 runs are deducted from the batting team for each wicket taken.
U11s coaching takes place on Tuesday evenings from 6.00pm until 7.30pm and is followed by an informal BBQ. Players wanting to be considered for matches need to attend these coaching sessions. The bar is open throughout the coaching session and, having paid an annual social members fee of just £5, many parents take the opportunity to enjoy the bar and friendly atmosphere in the occasionally warm evening sun!
