Training – youth
This page covers arrangements for members’ training, summer and winter. It is our main method to advise you when we have to make changes to our ‘normal’ schedule, for example, due to weather considerations.
Oh dear – no more Friday cricket!
Look out for our emails on winter training (starting in January) and the 2017 season starts on Friday April 28th 2017.
TWCC Friday training: If there is nothing shown below, assume that cricket is currently ‘on’ – please don’t try to contact us since we will be overwhelmed by calls and we have ‘day jobs’.
Summer normal schedule
Last Friday in April up to and including the last Friday in August.
Minis 17.00 pm for 17.15 start; finish 18.15
All others 18.20 for 18.30 start; finish 20.45 (weather permitting).
Catering on Fridays
Our catering partner, Perfect Platters often provides food on training evenings. They do so with an eye on the weather and the numbers likely to attend.
As numbers of our members are away over the next few Fridays there will not be any special catering – but bar is open as usual!
PLEASE ABIDE BY THE RULES as printed outside. The nets are for members only.
Winter training schedule
Details advised separately in late October for January programme start.
Bad weather summer/winter
Winter: travel and training venues may be adversely affected by ice/snow. See here for updates:
Summer: we train if pitch and nets are safe to use. On a bad weather day if it has stopped raining we may at least be able to use the nets for some members, but in this event we will inevitably have to disappoint some since we cannot of course fit everyone in over one evening.
For your interest we use this radar website to get some idea of the way any rain is tracking over us weather prospects .
We try to post decisions on changes to plans in due time to prevent unnecessary travel.
Always label kit. If something is left behind we suggest the following: wait until the next Friday and check to see whether the coach has put it into the training bag; check behind the bar or in the umpire’s room. We do have a lost property box and immediately unclaimed property will wind up there – ask the coach to check for you. You may also contact Jo-Anne Dekker.
