ECB Statement 18th March 2020

ECB Statement on the recreational game.

Following the Government’s latest advice around social distancing, it is with sadness and reluctance that we recommend that all forms of recreational cricket are for now suspended.

“This extends to training, pre-season friendlies and any associated cricket activity.

“Sport plays an absolutely vital role in the nation’s mental and physical wellbeing, and it helps people find meaning where there is fear and uncertainty, so one of our goals in the coming weeks will be to explore ways that we can support some levels of physical activity in communities – particularly at junior levels.

“Using our cricket community to support others could be one of the most important services we can offer during the difficult next few months.

“It will be critical that any decisions we do make are medically-led. And we will continue to work with Government and their advisors to ensure we are informed by science in our decision making.

“Over the coming weeks we will work with the game to understand what support is required across the cricket community, particularly local clubs and leagues – who will have such a huge role to play in our nation’s response to coming out of this situation.”

Welcome to 
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.

UntitledWe 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.

Message from Joe Dale, Club Captain

Cumnor Bears

Dear Bears,

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,


We have a thriving young players program for all age groups from All Stars and Kwik cricket upwards, offering the opportunity to learn and play lots of cricket
