Posted by Seb Duggan on

Dear Hambledon Under 7 and Under 9 Colts

We have had a difficult summer, because of COVID-19, and we hope you are all well and safe. We are now in a position to start some colts training next week and following weeks, starting on Sunday 12 July for the Under 7s and Under 9s. New arrangements are as follows:

Numbers have to be limited because of the rules over COVID-19, so please email Andrew to book a space. Andrew and the other coaches will be making every endeavour to ensure everyone gets a fair share of the slots over the next weeks. Here are a few points for guidance:

  • Please do not turn up on Sunday mornings without booking a space
  • All colts should come changed ready in training kit, The changing rooms will not be in use
  • Please can parents be prepared to assist the coaches to run the sessions safely – we can’t do it without you!
  • Toilets are available, there will be a one way system through the clubhouse
  • Suitable cleaning arrangements have been put in place, but please bring some hand sanitiser with you
  • Simple bar arrangements are in place and the Hambledon Blue kit will be on sale most evenings as well

Many of you have very kindly made a donation to the club to help us through this most unusual of summers. There will be no charges for these training sessions, but if you attend, it would be much appreciated if you can make a donation to the club, if you haven’t already 

So, please:

  • book a slot for a training session
  • please say when you book if you can assist running the session
  • please say what year your child is in and whether he/she has done any cricket before
  • please be patient if you can’t attend every week

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Announcing Girls' Cricket at Hambledon!

Posted by Seb Duggan on

Now we have started up cricket training for our youngsters, we are delighted to announce that we are also starting a girls section at Hambledon Cricket Club. This will be led by Jenna McFadzean, a qualified cricket coach and Sports Teacher at PGS. This will be a great opportunity for the girls to play cricket amongst themselves, without the boys in the way! So, if you have a daughter, sister, aunt, cousin or niece who is in School Year 5 through to School Year 8, you will be very welcome to join in. So will their friends! The arrangements are as follows:

  • Friday 10 July – Year 5 to Year 8: 6:00-7:30pm
    Led by Jenna McFadzean 

Numbers have to be limited because of the rules over Covid 19, so please email i.t.pratt@uwclub.net to book a space. The coaches will be making every endeavour to ensure everyone gets a fair share of the slots over the next weeks. Here are a few points for guidance:

  • Please do not turn up on the evening without booking a space
  • All girls should come changed ready in training kit, tee shirts and tracksuit bottoms or similar. The changing rooms will not be in use
  • Each girl should bring their own cricket ball with them, and use only that ball. Cricket balls can be borrowed from the clubhouse, should you not have one
  • Please can parents be prepared to assist the coaches to run the sessions safely
  • Toilets are available, there will be a one way system through the clubhouse
  • Suitable cleaning arrangements have been put in place, but please bring some hand sanitiser with you
  • Simple bar arrangements are in place and the Hambledon Blue kit will be on sale most evenings as well

A letter to Hambledon Colts and parents

Dear Hambledon Colts

We have had a difficult summer because of COVID-19, and we hope you are all well and safe. We are now in a position to start some Colts training next week and the following weeks, starting on Monday 6 July. For the moment, this is restricted to the Under 11s and older; we hope to make suitable arrangements for the Under 7s and Under 9s soon. New arrangements are as follows:

Numbers have to be limited because of the rules around COVID-19, so please email the appropriate coach to book a space. The coaches will be making every endeavour to ensure everyone gets a fair share of the slots over the next weeks. Here are a few points for guidance:

  • Please do not turn up on the evening without booking a space
  • All colts should come changed ready in training kit. The changing rooms will not be in use
  • Each colt should bring their own cricket ball with them, and use only that ball. Some cricket balls can be borrowed from the clubhouse, should you not have one
  • Please can parents be prepared to assist the coaches to run the sessions safely
  • Toilets are available; there will be a one way system through the clubhouse
  • Suitable cleaning arrangements have been put in place, but please bring some hand sanitiser with you
  • Simple bar arrangements are in place and the Hambledon blue kit will be on sale most evenings as well

Many of you have very kindly made a donation to the club to help us through this most unusual of summers. There will be no charges for these training sessions, but if you attend, it would be much appreciated if you can make a donation to the club, if you haven’t already.

The 64 million dollar question is: when can we actually play some games of cricket? The answer is that we don’t yet know. We are hoping for details soon from the ECB and the government, and we look forward to telling you when we can play.

So, please book a slot for a training session, please be patient if you can’t attend every week, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
