Cumnor Cricket Club
Youth Cricket 2020
We are pleased to be able to announce that from Monday 22nd June the youth coaching programme for our Kwiks and hardball cricketers will commence. This will continue for 10 weeks until the end of the summer holidays. See under Youth Cricket for details of this.
All Stars cricket is still on hold – we will provide news of this as soon as we can.
We will also soon also announce plans for a revised summer academy programme to take place during the holidays.
We await news from the ECB for when and how cricket matches in some shape or another may take place, and what, if any, senior competitive cricket might take place.
Our nets are open to youth and senior members for training: please book a slot on the myClubhouse bookings page.
Cumnor Cricket Club
Cumnor Cricket Club is home to the Cumnor Bears senior and junior squads, a thriving All Stars and youth coaching programme and the popular holiday Academy weeks for 6-13’s.
Our club competes at the highest level within the Cherwell League with three senior teams playing in divisions 1-9, fields a midweek T20 side and hosts a series of Sunday afternoon friendlies.
Our thriving young players programme caters for all age groups from All Stars (5-8yrs) and Kwiks (8-9yrs) and upwards (10-17yrs), offering the opportunity to learn and play lots of cricket. Our junior teams enjoy repeated success and our most talented youngsters go on to the Oxfordshire Youth Player Pathway and represent their county.
We are well organised, have good facilities and grounds and maintain our ECB Clubmark status.
If you and your family want to get fit – play cricket at any level or simply enjoy our clubhouse and grounds, Cumnor is sure to give you a big welcome.
The new decade of cricket is rapidly approaching and I hope you’ve had a great winter. We rightly celebrated 2019 as a brilliant success for the club in so many ways, and now our attention is focused on replicating that success in 2020.
An army of volunteers, both playing and non playing, are busy laying foundations for another great year. I urge you all to continue to play your part in our continued evolution as a club. We are always seeking new players and as committed members you are our greatest ambassadors to bring in new faces. Everyone is welcome. On the pitch, Cumnor Bears are highly respected across the county, and led by our three new captains is our duty to retain this reputation of playing hard but playing fair.
It’s been said before but I’ll say it again. “If I get there 15 minutes earlier, what can I do to help…before I get in my car and leave, what can I do to help…does it matter that I did it last week?”
So sign up, come to pre-season training, and join us getting the club ready for the new season at the 2020 Nat West Cricket Force Day on the weekend of 28th/29th March.
The success of this club rests on everyone playing their part on and off the pitch. Culture eats strategy for breakfast.
See you soon,
Our summer academies are under way and so far everyone seems to be having great fun - especially our lead coach… https://t.co/UHnyMKge0X

Morteza Ali fled Afghanistan aged 14 after the Taliban killed his family. He eventually made his way to England, where he met the man who would become his second father.
