Membership – Youth

About us
The Youth section – boys and girls – plays a very important role in the continued growth and success of the Club and we work hard to encourage youngsters of every ability to develop their cricketing skills and a love for the game.

We have ECB/KCB Clubmark status, confirming that we are a safe, effective, and child-friendly Club, and receive their special support in our continued efforts to develop cricket in the community.

For girls thinking of joining us: here are some very good reasons why: Why choose TWCC Girls?

Qualified coaches and match managers ensure that members may enjoy the pleasure of training and playing on The Nevill, one of the country’s most beautiful cricket grounds. Training sessions are held weekly from the end of April to the end of August, and there are winter training programmes. Our high quality outdoor cricket nets are fully utilised by youth members. Each age group has its own lead coach and support coaches.

We run separate match programmes for boys and girls competing in leagues, festivals and friendlies. Most matches are played on Sundays, and some on midweek evenings; youth members aged 14-17, are actively encouraged to play in our ‘open-age’ men’s and women’s sides, when they are ready to step up.

Youth members are full Club members with entitlement to all privileges (apart from some legal restrictions).
