About Cumnor Cricket Club
We have around
We have around 250 members across both the junior and senior sections of the club and we aim to offer a high standard of coaching and facilities to all.
We try to continually improve our standard of play, progress our juniors through the youth and senior sections and also ensure there is something for everyone no matter what level of cricket they wish to play.
Currently we take junior cricketers from reception to Year 3 on our All Stars programme and Year 3 and above on our Kwiks and youth cricket programme. We enter teams in all age groups in Kwiks and above across various league and cup competitions.
There are also opportunities for juniors to progress through the older age groups and also experience our adult Sunday and league sides.
At the end of each season a number of our talented youngsters are nominated to the OCB player pathway system for further coaching and progression to county or development sides.
During the school summer holidays we also run very successful summer weekly academies which are a great introduction to cricket for the younger players whilst also giving older more experienced players the opportunity to improve their skills and match play.
Currently we have three senior teams playing within the Cherwell League as follows:
We also have a Sunday afternoon side (SAS) and a midweek T20 side.
Senior sides train throughout the season on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the clubs nets under the direction of our lead Coach.
Tuesday at 6pm – 1st XI
Thursday at 6pm – Club Training
If you want to play cricket please get in touch – we are a friendly, fun and ambitious club and we welcome all.
