Willoughby Cricket Club once again extends an invitation for new adult and junior players to join them for what promises to be an exciting and interesting summer ahead.
2019 promises to be an exciting new chapter for us as we have switched Saturday leagues for the forthcoming campaign. The club’s two Saturday league teams will now compete in the Northamptonshire Cricket League, with the 1st XI beginning life in Division 6 and 2nd XI starting off in Division 13.
Willoughby will also be fielding a team on a Wednesday in the Rugby and District Cricket League (RDCL), plus will also offer non-league social cricket with their Sunday Development XI playing a series of friendlies with local village and clubs.
At junior/youth level, the club will once again field teams at Under 13 and 15 levels in the RDCL, as well as running weekly coaching and training sessions for those teams and offering Kwik Cricket for boys and girls aged 6-10 years looking to start out and try cricket for the first time.
We also offer women's cricket with our ladies 'tip and run' team who play on Monday evenings in a local friendly league.
Off-the-field you will find just as much going on as on it. Along with the club's bar 'Jean's Tavern' being open for drinks during and after all matches, we have regular social events including weekly training/practice nights, bbqs, social nights out at the club and other venues, our annual 6-a-side tournament, Lads v Dads match, Single Wicket Tournament, club tour, and end of season Presentation Evening.
