Our Cricket & Covid19

Tadworth Cricket Club Member Update (13 May 2020)

Our Middle name – Cricket

We hope everyone associated with Tadworth Cricket Club are well and surviving the challenges that Covid19 has presented to us all. We all know key workers and we want to put on record our thanks to all of them – amazing people

On the cricket front, Tadworth Cricket Club remain committed to following government and ECB guidance and, at this time, recreational cricket including practice remains suspended. As a committee we are actively monitoring the situation and will respond to changes in guidance as we receive them. If cricket of any kind is permitted we will need some volunteers to help get the club ready so that we can follow safety guidance and maintain social distancing requirements. Member safety will be our highest priority . For your information, preparation of the square is underway and the outfield is being cut twice a month. Cricket should be able to start with a couple of weeks notice

Financially 2020 is going to be difficult.

Without any cricket we project a loss of 3-4 K. This can be reduced if cricket can be played and if restrictions allow we will aim to have some social events to raise funds for Tadworth Cricket Club.

If you have not yet paid your social membership it is not too late to do so. The 25 pounds will help to manage our outgoings .

We have been promised a grant of 1300 pounds by Sport England – we are grateful for this contribution and it will contribute towards payment of our insurance and utilities. It is likely we will use some of the clubs reserves this year and so the solid fiscal position of the last 2 years is helping us through the lockdown.

We are planning a virtual general knowledge quiz on the May 25th Bank Holiday starting at 8pm . This is an opportunity for a bit of social engagement with friends at TCC and will be hosted by Mike W-K . We look forward to you joining

Until such time that we can start the season we wish you good health. Stay well
