Junior membership and winter nets

Our juniors winter nets are now well underway. There are still a few spaces remaining in some sessions – click here for full details, and please email Sam if you are interested. Many thanks to the DPL staff members – Ed Matten, Tom Savill, and Fiona Alexander – who have agreed to assist with locking up arrangements so as to enable us to use the sports hall on a Sunday.

We plan to commence our 2015 juniors membership renewal process in the first week of February, with existing members given an opportunity to renew and to register siblings by the end of that month. If you are not a member, but would like your child to join us this year please email Sam, stating your child's full name, date of birth, and school attended. Constraints on space, coaching resource and league team places mean that we place caps on membership in each age group, and we anticipate that many age groups will be oversubscribed, so get in early if you are interested and wish your child to be wait-listed.

The Big Cricket Non-Cricket Family Fun Quiz Night

On Friday 27th February we will be holding an entertaining family quiz night at the Dulwich Sports Club, hosted by the self-styled Ant and Dec of Dulwich CC (Allen Blackford and Richard Beeching). The event will start at 6:00pm and last approximately two hours.

This is the third leg of our outdoor net fundraising campaign, and promises to be great fun for everyone, with separate questions for adults and children, and points combined to make a team score. Membership of MENSA is not required!!!

Details are still being finalised, but there will be food, a raffle, spot prizes – and some great prizes for the quiz champions.

Save the date! We’ll be emailing further details to juniors members and asking you to reserve places in advance.

Juniors pre-season get together and information evening

In lieu of our usual Sunday morning pre-season open day, we will be holding a social evening on Friday 26th April at 6pm to welcome new members to the club, provide information about training and playing arrangements for 2015, and have a general catch up, with the opportunity to ask questions of our coaches. There will be food available, a raffle, and an auction of recycled kit and equipment. Keep an eye on your email for more details.

Under 11s bring home the cup!

The DCC U11s won a tight, topsy turvy final against Sutton to win the NEC Surrey cup at Trinity Mid-Whitgiftians on Sunday 31st August. All the boys played their part in a terrific win but special mention goes to Isaac Shaw for a tremendous performance with bat and ball.

Player awards announced

Awards have been handed out to juniors across the Dulwich colt teams at our Juniors Day 2014 in September. Click here for details!
