CRICKET - Willoughby Cricket Club begin preparations for new season

WILLOUGHBY Cricket Club have begun their preparations for the 2022 season with indoor sessions as part of their pre-season training.


The club will hold separate sessions for their senior/adult cricketers and junior/youth cricketers, with all groups having use of the indoor facilities and nets at Bilton School in Rugby.


Sessions will start next Wednesday, January 12 and will run every Wednesday from 5.30pm to 8.30pm with the sessions split between the following categories and times:


5:30pm to 6:30pm ~ Under-11’s and Dynamos

6:30pm to 7:30pm ~ Under-13’s and Under-15’s.

7:30pm to 8:30pm ~ Seniors/Adults


Willoughby are anticipating fielding a full complement of junior cricket teams this summer and invite budding youngsters to register their interest now to join them for the 2022 season.


Where junior (hard ball) cricket teams are concerned, the club are set to field teams at all age group levels – under-11, under-13 and under-15 – in the Rugby and District Cricket League (RDCL) from May to August.


The under-13’s will play their RDCL fixtures on a Tuesday evening and the under-11’s and under-15’s on a Thursday evening.


In addition to this, each team will have weekly training sessions with their ECB-qualified coaches (days and time to be agreed), along with a series of friendly matches also arranged during the season.


As always Willoughby welcomes players of all abilities, so if your son or daughter is interested in joining any of the club’s under-11, under-13 or under-15 teams, feel free to get in touch.


For more information and to register for Willoughby’s under-11, under-13 and under-15 teams, contact the club via their website at:


In addition to the hard ball teams, Willoughby will also be running their highly successful All Stars Cricket and Dynamos Cricket programmes from May. Further details will be announced shortly.
