 Summer Coaching Arrangements for 2022 
  • We plan to be able to run a full winter and summer coaching programme in 2022. The summer programme normally starts in late April / early May and runs through to the end of August. The summer programme is run outdoors at Berkhamsted Cricket Club. Most sessions up to school year 6 take place on weekends with year 7 onwards weekday evenings.
  • Membership must be paid in full prior to the start of the season.
  • For any private coaching please speak to our head coach James Bell who's details can be found on our officials page or coaching page.
  • Any children in school years 1 & 2 can enrol in our All Stars Group which runs on Saturday mornings for 10 weeks between May and July.  
 Girls Cricket 
  • Our Girls section started in 2010 and had been building steadily ever since. 
  • There are now over 100 girls playing at the club and in 2022 we will be running 7 teams at U11, U13 and U15 age groups.  
  • Our Girls section are offered the same programme as the Boys with Summer and Winter training as well as development pathways to represent Herts and Bucks at a County level. 
  • Girls play softball cricket until U11 where they move onto hardball cricket. 
  • It is important for us that Girls see a clear pathway and development at the club and since 2015 we have offered routes into not only County age group teams but our Women's team which regularly features a number of U16 girls. Beyond County level girls with exceptional ability can move into regional academies and beyond that the professional game. 
 2022 Junior Fees 
  • 2022 fees can be found under our Membership Subs page (to be announced in January 2022)
  • Fees can be paid by bank transfer to the Berkhamsted Cricket Club account. 
  • Account Number: 20878561

  • Please ensure you include the name of the player whose subs are being paid in the reference box and email Mark Lewarne at rmlewarne@gmail.com to inform him you have made the payment. 
  • Junior Subs also include all junior match fees. Juniors can start playing for Senior teams from U14 (year 9) and pay a reduced match fee for these games. 
 Cricket Weeks 
  • Our hugely popular Cricket Weeks (additional fees apply) usually run as a 4 day course during the Easter Holidays and over 3 weeks during the summer holidays. Dates for 2022 are confirmed on our key dates page. Further information will be available in due course. Priority bookings will be given to fully paid members until the end of April. After this time the courses will be advertised to the wider community. 
 Match Selection Policy 2022
  • We enter both our boys and girls teams into the Hertfordshire Junior League. Whilst our policy is to provide games for as many children as possible we also try to promote excellence and competitive play. So where possible we have 2 teams. One selected on ability and the other being an opportunity for less experienced and improving players to develop their skills. Teams are regularly reviewed throughout the season to ensure balance and fairness. 
  • Each team is organised by a VOLUNTEER parent(s)/ guardians who are responsible for picking the team and over-seeing the game on the day. There is no limit on the number of teams we can enter but we do need your help to be able to keep them running.
