Description

Great Melton Cricket Club is a Norfolk village club situated 3 miles from the market town of Wymondham and 7 miles from Norwich. The club’s beautiful parkland setting is in the heart of the Norfolk countryside and the club itself is the hub of its small village community. The club aim to encourage the playing of and involvement in cricket through the provision of playing and practice facilities, coaching, fixtures and social events for members of all ages and abilities. We currently run 14 teams: 4 Saturday teams, a Sunday team, 2 midweek teams, a Women’s Team and 6 junior sides: Under 19, Under 15, Under 13, Under 11, Under 11 Girls & Under 9.

The club has a thriving junior section that comprised over 180 youngsters in 2018, which includes a growing girls section. This year we are looking for funding for additional coaching resources to enhance our coaching experience. Additionally, we need more qualified coaches, so we are looking for funding to enable our club members to attend English Cricket Board (ECB) run coaching courses.

By funding additional resources and coaching staff, this will ensure as many young people as possible continue to have the opportunity to play cricket.
