After recent changes to lockdown restrictions and with the backing of the ECB, Pett Cricket Club is delighted to announce that our season will start at Pett Recreation Ground from Saturday 18th July with a home game against Robertsbridge CC.
This will be followed by 2 new competitions for this curtailed season. Firstly, through the August weekends will be a one off August Cup competition organised by the Sussex Cricket Foundation and League to replace the ‘normal’ season. Secondly, will be the delayed and modified Sussex Slam T20 midweek competition. These will be complemented by a sprinkling of friendly matches. For full fixture and result details please keep up to date via
For this return to play the club, and wider game, is in need of complying with stringent Covid-19 restrictions. These, it is hoped, will not greatly effect the overall game to be played. However, it will impact substantially on our overall game day experience. As a sample the following have been removed to allow a return to play: no use of changing rooms, no club teas at the break of play, no general use of the pavilion along with various other social distancing requirements we have all become more familiar with. There are others too numerous to list here.
It is appreciated that we play our games on a public recreation ground and we have always greatly enjoyed the support of our wider community. At this time we would ask that should you venture to the ground when a game is being played you respect the restrictions our club and visitors are governed by at this time. Please do not take our distance or lack of engagement – that would normally be the case – as rudeness. Simply actions that must be taken at this time to allow cricket to return to Pett.
Thank you for your support in this rather troubled season and we cannot wait to return to ‘normal’ cricket as soon as is permitted – it’s just not such a time yet.
