Breaking News from the Chairmen...

Caterham Cricket Club is increasing its preparedness for any return to match play. Senior practice has been under way for three weeks, at all times in groups of six with social distancing maintained. We have also ensured other protective measures are in place such as players wearing batting inner gloves when handling the ball. Tonight (19th June) sees our first junior practice session - in groups of up to five players with one coach. Temperatures will be taken on arrival, social distancing marked out with cones and our juniors will also field with gloves on.

Until Public Health England advice changes (particularly around social distancing and maximum group sizes for exercise) we will not start match play. But if PHE advice does change, and in line with any guidance from the England and Wales Cricket Board, we will look to get adapted matches under way this season. We would definitely look to be creative, maybe considering more than one match a day on school holiday week days for our juniors given that many families will not be travelling abroad in July and August. And what about a festival of Tandridge, East Surrey or other clubs with junior sides? See below the ECB guide on the phases of returning cricket - you'll see we're in Step 3 currently and Step 4 is what we're aiming for this summer.


In addition, we are very excited TODAY to read this statement from the Surrey Championship and Surrey County Leagues, the pyramid structure within which we play senior Saturday cricket: Our expectation is that we will facilitate cricket this year, albeit adapted, for all our clubs that want cricket. We will put firm dates and schedules behind this just as soon as we can. It is decided meanwhile that any cricket we do play will not lead to promotion or relegation.

So thank you to the many members, senior and junior, that have attended our practices so far this summer. Thank you to the coaches that have made this happen. We have been actively messaging our existing members but please Contact Us, or e-mail directly to info@caterhamcc.com if you'd like to be part of our positive and forward looking club.
