Welcome to the 2023 season – it promises to be a busy year with a full fixture card and plenty of social events!
Following much success last season, the adult teams will be forging ahead into 2023. The men continue with a busy programme of mid-week and Sunday fixtures with a sniff of the possibility of building a League team for 2024. The women retain the Softball League trophy and added new silverware by winning the first Dorset 100 Cup. In their first hardball season they came 2nd in the Dorset Super-8s. Onwards and upwards the LBWs are also branching into the Somerset League this year.
All Stars and Dynamos were very successful in 2022 and many a fun Friday evening was had at the Club with 42 children regularly in attendance. Many thanks to a committed coaching and volunteer team for making this such a positive experience for all. This season we are running All-Stars and Junior training where we will be entering both U9 and U11 teams into the Dorset League. Hopefully this year some of the parents will be keen to pick up a bat themselves?
We will be starting a hardball club training evening on Tuesdays this year – watch out for details.
We were awarded an ECB grant for ‘Creating Welcoming Environments’ late into last year which was used to resurface the driveway and buy new picnic benches and seating. This year we hope to achieve further grant support to help Club development.
Thank you to the dedicated and growing Committee who are looking for more ways to raise money to support the club. Along with the VPs and helpful volunteers we are hoping to continue to maintain and build our wonderful Cricket Club.
Look out for lots of exciting events in 2023 from Bingo to Barbeques, a Club Open Day and Cricket aplenty.
Looking forward to the season ahead,

Hi BWCC golfers,
Wincanton GC looks as if it may be closed down by end of March. The Club management is putting together a plan to save the Club, to present to the Jockey Club (the owners) before Christmas. They need as much support as possible.
I’m sure lots of us (me and family included) play there quite often as a very convenient venue to warm up for our needle matches so any golfers who have any interest in playing at Wincanton, please fill in the attached very short questionnaire and return it by email asap to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can download either the Docx (MS Word) version or the PDF version.
At the latest by 27 Nov please.
And please pass this on to anyone else you know who might be interested.
