Bingham Cricket Club aimed to pick up where they left off in 2013 as winter training sessions began at the club’s Bingham Leisure Centre indoor base this week.
Last season was one of the most successful in the club’s 227-year history, with the Saturday first team being promoted and the second string winning their league as well.
At junior level, Bingham under-13s won the Newark and District Colts League for the second time in three seasons, and numbers flourished in each age group.
Growth at the club has led to the formation of a Saturday third team which will play friendly matches this summer – the BCC committee had tried to enter the South Notts League but missed out due to a league
Bingham CC club chairman Paul Maylard-Mason said “Despite the growth at the club, and the on and off field success we have enjoyed, we are still very keen to welcome players of all ages and abilities.
“We now have three Saturday teams catering for all levels of ability, as well as a Sunday league team and midweek games.”
Senior net sessions run on Tuesday nights, from 8pm to 9pm at Bingham Leisure Centre’s main hall.
Kwik cricket sessions for under-10s with no hard-ball cricket experience are on Saturdays, 8am till 9am.
Hardball junior sessions for under-11 to age 15 boys and girls are also on Saturdays, from 11.30am to 1pm.
Costs is £4 for non-members and £3 for members.
