59 Club vacancies available

As you may know we have been running a 59 Club for the past few years with the intention of raising funds for Dulwich Cricket Club. We have ten vacancies – could you join us?

We have decided to continue with the 59 Club as a fund raising activity as we will need bowling machines, some drainage work and at some stage indoor practice nets. We would be delighted if you could join us in this fund raising activity.

The price of joining the 59 club is £100. You can pay a lump sum in cash, BACS or by a cheque. We also offer a standing order in twelve payments of £9.

We allocate each member of the 59 club a number and pay out for the bonus ball selected in the National Lottery each Saturday. In last year we had thirty four individuals receive at least one £50 pay out with thirteen people receiving two pay-outs. Phil Stoker (a player from the 1990s) won three times but Jimmy Gibson (one time player and retired actor) scooped the pool to win four times.

Janet Gotch manages the cheque payments and she will be keen to send you a winning cheque. John Lawrence, Stewart Harmer and John Smith act as trustees and cheque signatories.

If you are keen to join in, and support our club, please arrange to send a cheque for £100 made payable to the Dulwich Indoor Cricket Project. If you wish to pay by BACS or standing order please use the following codes and identify your payment by your name.

You may have noticed it raining a little recently.

Our grounds contractors have hired a sheet to keep our square protected. A brighter Spring would be much welcome as preparations for the new season continue apace!

  • Older senior players who have shown an interest in umpiring in the future, or players in teams where they are expected to help umpire games

The varied and interesting course costs just £5 per person to attend and payment process can be confirmed by contacting John or Geoff directly.

Winter nets schedule – Seniors

Our indoor nets have been booked for Sunday 29th January through to Sunday 9th April (6.00pm – 8.00pm) at Dulwich College Sports Centre (Pond Cottages, London SE21 7LE).

We may look to extend the indoor nets beyond these dates but will take that decision nearer the time, dependent on the weather and our ability to train outside in April.

The nets organiser, Graeme Hough, will be in touch with members early in the New Year about how to book a place. Places will be limited to 32 on a first come, first served basis.

As in previous years there will be separate indoor nets for our 1st and 2nd team squad players beginning in mid/late February. Captains will be in touch in the New Year about these. Before these begin, however, all players are welcome to the Sunday ‘club’ nets.

BCS – Peter Rice retires not out

At the ripe old age of 74, club legend Peter Rice is hanging up his keys to Beckenham Cricket Specialists.

Peter says: "I set up B.C.S in 1993 and am proud to see how over the years it has become established as one of the leading cricket specialists in the country. John & Sue Copus have bought the business from me and, importantly, all my current colleagues are being retained by them. I am very grateful for the loyal service, that they have all given me. In particular, of course, over a period of many years Vernon and Mark, but also not forgetting more recently Dudley & Giani. Thanks also to my wife Jackie for her unstinting help & support. I would like to thank all of you that have supported me over the years, and I hope to still see many of you at the Club I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas, and a happy and healthy New Year.

Peter Rice

P.S. In addition to our normal hours we are also open on Sunday 18th Dec 11am – 3pm."
