CCC Cricket Force Weekend.. We Need YOUR Help.

Charlbury CC Cricket force weekend is nearly upon us & the club needs help for a few hours to help get the club ready for the 2018 season.

“NatWest Cricket Force is a nationwide initiative aimed at cricket clubs. The programme is designed to bring clubs and local communities closer together, and ensure grounds and facilities are ready for the new season.

NatWest CricketForce 2018 will take place on 23rd to 25th March with a focus upon supporting the improvement of changing and toilets facilities for women and girls, improving access for disabled people, creating more family friendly function rooms.

Other projects undertaken range from simple paint jobs, sight screen scrubbing and renewed boundary fencing, to brand new changing rooms, function rooms and even a new pavilion.”

There are various jobs that need completing at OUR club before the season starts & the main item is to re-stain the clubhouse.

Please can you help for a few hours either on Saturday 24th March or Sunday 25th March?

There will be four work shift’s (two on each day) hopefully everyone can do at least one of the shift’s….

10:00am-1:00pm or 1:00pm-4:00pm (either day or both)

All equipment will be provided by the club, all we ask is that you put on some old clothes & come down to the club & give a few hours help.

All Stars Cricket returns to Charlbury!

All Stars Cricket is a fantastic initiative from the England and Wales Cricket Board aimed at providing children aged five to eight with a great first experience in cricket. It is a fun and active way to develop your child’s skills, and through our eight-week programme they will learn lots – as well as make new friends – in a safe and inclusive environment.
Everyone is welcome, and each registered child will receive a pack of cricket goodies including a cricket bat, ball, backpack, water bottle, personalised shirt and cap to keep so that they can continue their love of cricket when they go home. Returning participants will receive a different pack of goodies including an updated shirt and a set of stumps to add to their equipment.
All Stars cricket is once again running at Charlbury Cricket Club, and registration is now open for the programme, which starts in May 2018. We had a great fun last year and would love to continue the success of this programme this year.
If you would like more details please contact us at or visit (where you can register your child)IMG_0874
