At present, the Club Secretary is working with Surrey Cricket in trying to obtain funding to upgrade the outdoor nets. The nets are 10 years old and are pretty much worn out and we’d love to replace them with brand new nets. Would you believe that to replaced them costs around £20,000, which is money we haven’t got. To even be in with a chance of getting a grant for this much, we need to show that the nets are well used. We know they are, especially as some of our younger players practice in them right up until its dark (and even then try and carry on)! Please could you either write a letter of support or e-mail be at [email protected], stating how much you/your young player spend time in the nets and if it improves their ability, confident, lifestyle etc. Doesn’t matter if you are a young player, coach, parent or senior player – anything you put down in writing will be very much appreciated and will be used in our evidence folder to Surrey Cricket.
Many thanks for your assistance in this.
