Welcome

Ropley Cricket Club is a long established village club in the heart of Hampshire. During the summer months the cricket club is the centre piece of village life. The club welcomes all new members and spectators will always receive a warm reception.

Ropley cricket club’s mission is to provide cricketing opportunities for all members of the community. We seek to provide a club where all ages and all abilities can develop their skills in a friendly welcoming environment. We are an equal opportunities club and support all ECB’s policies and guidelines. We have included a statement of Inclusion and Diversity in our Club Rules. For further information see the Summary of the 2019 Development Plan.  In support of our mission we expect players, guests and visitors to abide by our policies and standards of behaviour, a copy of the club rules and policies can be found on our website in the Clubmark section.

Stage 4 In the ECB Road MAp

Now that the ECB have moved us to Stage 4 in their road map we had a fantastic first weekend of cricket.

The senior and juniors will be hoping to play a full fixture list from now through to the end of August. As part of this we have updated our risk assessment policy. As a member please take the time to read and become familiar with it.  The ECB have also published their guidelines, again please take the time to read and digest.

Please note that the main wicket will no longer be available to be booked for training, though the nets are still available to be booked as before.

Here's to a great Summer of cricket, of what's left anyway !!

CRICKET NET - MEMBERS ONLY

Dear Ropley Cricket Club Members

Following ECB guidance we are now able to open the nets for 1 to 1 use or family groups. We must follow both ECB and Government guidelines on social distancing.

We have a booking system ready for members to book time slots. Time slots will be for 50 minutes on the hour, with a 10 minute turn around time between slots. To book a slot you need to email ropleyccnets@gmail.com with

  • Date & time you want to book
  • Name of the adult present
  • Mobile telephone number

We will then reply to you and confirm that time is available or try to offer you an alternative. You need to receive this confirmation before going to the nets.

We will be expecting the adult booking the facility in their name to be responsible for their group in ensuring everything is left as it was when arrived.  You must bring all your own equipment including stumps.

We can only offer this booking system to members and they will be regarded as the Club representative on site. We may also ask you to confirm that the membership details we have for you are up to date when booking.

If you are planning on booking the nets please ensure you have read the guidance on the link below regarding your responsibilities.

The pavilion will unfortunately not be open for general use.

We will be continually reviewing how this process is working to see if any changes are required.

If anyone has any questions or would like to feedback on the arrangements please drop us an email on chair@ropleycc.co.uk
