WED SEP 9 TO SUN SEP 13: LGCC Proudly Presents Cricket Week 2020

17 Aug 2020

Leverstock Green CC is delighted to confirm details about its renowned Cricket Week for 2020 - and in doing so assure members, their family & friends that we'll be doing everything within the club's control to provide a safe and enjoyable environment, given current Covid measures.

Wednesday September 9 through to Sunday September 13 will provide the five days upon which consecutive cricket games and social(-ly distanced) post-match activities will take place.

Three traditonal Cricket Week fixtures will take place on the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday - all starting around 12.30pm. Redbourn, Harpenden Dolphins and Aldenham are the confirmed visitors for each of the respective days.

It's Herts League final-day action on the Saturday, with an 11.30am start v Hitchin for the 1st XI, before an LGCC Past Players XI takes on a Present-Day Players XI in The Liz Wood Tribute Match on the family-focused Cricket Week finale of Sunday September 13 (1.00pm start).

Subject to availability, we also hope to stage some junior cricket on both weekend mornings, ahead of the adults wheeling into action.

So it's a different structure from traditional Monday-Friday Cricket Weeks of yesteryear, but then pretty much everything is completely different so the club felt a need to break away from the norm to ensure this important event can still take place.

Social(-ly) distanced after-cricket activities will include:
- Wed Sep 9: Slip & Slide for youngsters and the young at heart
- Thu Sep 10: Caribbean Day sounds and food, provided by Chef Drummie & his team
- Fri Sep 11: 'Play Your Cards Right' & other family games, then Beer Pong Champions League
- Sat Sep 12: Live set from DJ JT late into the evening
- Sun Sep 13: Pre-match luncheon from 12noon, then families to the fore throughout the day

Although we recognise Cricket Week falls within term time just this once, we want to warmly welcome LGCC members of all ages along for some enjoyable afternoons and happy times spent with family, fellow members and friends.

Let's hope for some mercifully kind weather for this five days!

We look forward to welcoming you at The Green.
