Teams

We welcome players of all standards and run teams to suit all abilities and ages and have games/outdoor nets on Friday evenings (all welcome intra club game), Saturday (Cherwell Cricket league) and Sunday friendly games against local clubs and touring teams. We’re always delighted to welcome new players and teams for Sunday fixtures, so please get in touch at info@swinbrookcc.org if you’re interested in joining us.

Net Practice

For the 2021 season, outdoor net practice will commence on Friday 23rd April from 6pm, weather permitting. Andrew Wingfield-Digby will be running the sessions along with the assistance of other parents and members. We have the opportunity to have a professional cricket coach available to the club for some of our net practices too. With sufficient numbers we will try to use practice matches as a way of developing both our senior and junior players in a match environment. All ages and levels of ability are welcome to join us!

The clubhouse and bar will, subject to Covid restrictions at the time, be open during net practice sessions.

Juniors

In 2021 we are delighted to be introducing a junior section at Swinbrook CC. We aim to grow local interest in the game, grow the membership of the club, and in time introduce younger players into our senior team. Coaching will be provided by members of the club, and will take the form of nets, drills, fielding practice, etc. We warmly welcome school age girls and boys (hard ball training for age 10+), no previous cricketing experience necessary. Our first session will be at the Swinbrook club from April 23rd at 6pm. Please bring along whatever kit you have available (note we will be unable to share due to Covid restrictions), and it will be necessary to join the club as a junior member for insurance purposes. Friendly, fun, relaxed family atmosphere at our beautiful ground. For further information please contact info@swinbrookcc.org or simply turn up at training.

Kit

Club kit for training and matches is available from Wreal Sports. Purchased items can be delivered to your home address or you can collect orders from their shop in Bourton on the Water.
