Clubhouse
The clubhouse will be open for refreshments pre and post matches. We encourage you to enjoy the hospitality. Drinks can be taken from the bar to the pitch in disposable containers. Please use the bins provided.
Car Parking
Parking on summer league nights can be busy. This is due to the number of teams we have attending each evening and other sports going on up at the Club. Please be conscious that we are in a residential area and parking on the road outside of the club should be avoided. If there isn’t any space within the car park, there is a layby just down the road which you are able to park in. There is also the overflow car park which is on the other side of the cricket pitch (still on church lane). The gate to the overflow should be open on match-day nights. We encourage car sharing, the use of public transport, or walking/ cycling where possible. Bikes can be secured in the spectator area.
