WALSDEN CRICKET & BOWLING CLUB

 

GENERAL INFORMATION ON W C & B C.

 

The village of Walsden is situated in Calderdale, West Yorkshire and has a population of approximately 2,500 people. The only major sporting centre in Walsden is the cricket club and along with Saint Peters Church it is the main focal point for the local community. The Club is affiliated to both the Lancashire and Yorkshire Cricket Boards and is a Clubmark approved club and a registered Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC).

 

Walsden Cricket & Bowling Club was formed in 1870 and in 2000 celebrated its 130th year.  The Club was a founder member of the Central Lancashire League (CLL) in 1892 and until 2015 remained in that league. In 2016 the club joined The Pennine Cricket League (PCL) which was a merger of the Central Lancashire League and the Saddleworth League. .

 

Walsden C&BC is a non profit making organisation with any profits being reinvested in the club, cricket, and bowls. The club is run by its Officers and the General Committee of around 15 committed individuals. It currently has around 300 members in total and also has a large number of non members and guests who regularly use the clubs facilities.

 

As a cricket club there are three senior teams, four junior teams (U15, U13, U11, U9), a ladies team and for bowls the club has six bowling teams which includes two veteran teams. We provide excellent cricket coaching for juniors and there is cricket available for youngsters every evening during the summer months.

 

Our ground and nets are available to all local schools at no cost. Our function room (Millennium Suite) is used throughout the year by Age Concern for luncheon clubs for which we only pass on the cost of heating and cleaning our pavilion. It is also used by Todmorden Bridge Club. In addition many local charities and community groups use our rooms for various purposes, again at no charge. Below are some of the local organisations that have used the club and ground free of charge:

            Shade and Walsden School for Cricket when requested.

            Shade & Walsden Parents & Friends Fund Raising.

            St Peters Church, Walsden.

            Bellholme Sports Association (met for 15 years at our club).

            Walsden O.A.P. Friendly Club.

            Cancer Research Todmorden.

            Deaf Children Fund Raising.

            Walsden Cricket & Football Club.

            Todmorden Harriers.

            White Rose Archers (for major shoots).

            Age Concern – Lunch Club (a nominal charge).

 

The club function room is also used by Calderdale MBC as a polling station.

 

Our club is and has been used as a community centre for the following:

Wedding Receptions, Funeral Wakes, Dancing, Fitness Clubs, Slimming Clubs, Children’s Parties, Quiz’s, Table Tennis, Darts, Retirement Functions, First Aid Courses and many other types of Seminars.

 

 

Millennium Suite/Sponsors Lounge/Match Sponsorship

 

The Sponsors Lounge is part of the larger Millennium Suite (see link below) and can be partitioned off for privacy to accommodate the numbers you need up to, approximately 50.

 

The lounge is recently decorated and has its own television and music facilities and has its own private bar. Use of the bar is negotiable. The cost of match sponsorship is normally £100 plus VAT, but can also be negotiatable.

Advertising Boards

 

Advertising boards are placed around the ground in full view of spectators and players. Costs are dependent upon your requirement but standard board set up prices are approximately £100 for 8’x3’ plus Vat for providing the board itself and then £100 per annum plus Vat thereafter for the advertising board annually. Sponsors can provide their own boards if they wish.

 

 

Match Ball sponsorship

 

Match ball sponsorship is available for all 1st XI games and other games upon request. Providing cricket balls for every game is a major expense, so this form of sponsorship is very valuable to the club.

 

Match ball sponsorship of 1st XI & 2nd XI games costs approximately £25,  3rd XI £15 and junior £10, all figures inclusive of VAT.

 

 

Pitch Hire And Practice Net Hire

 

The cricket ground and cricket nets are available for hire for friendly games and practice. The hire includes use of our recently redecorated changing rooms including showers and toilets. Cricket equipment can also be supplied on request.
