As part of Ascot Racecourse’s 3-year community/charity strategy, we will be hosting a Community Cricket Match on Sunday, 23 April 2017 to include all our tenant clubs and their respective members – the Locomotive Society, Ascot Football Club, Royal Ascot Golf Club and the Cricket Club. A fun, social occasion to bring all parties together for what we believe will be the first time.
We propose to hold a 20/20 match with 2 x teams of 11 – the team mix to be determined subject to participating numbers and interest from your respective clubs.
We anticipate a start time of 1-5pm to incorporate a BBQ and presentations. The event can be communicated as a family day (the Cricket Club have kindly offered to run coaching sessions for any children and we are also looking at other entertainment).
Ascot will be providing a free BBQ for any players, with a nominal charge for spectators of £5 for adults and £2 for children – all proceeds being donated to Ascot Racecourse’s Charitable Donations Fund that supports small, local charities.
We will circulate an A4 flyer/sign up sheet in due course so that we can ascertain numbers for catering, but in the first instance, we would like to know if your club would like to nominate 2/3 players to enter? If I could ask you to let me know how many players you will be entering by 1 March that would be great.
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you and hope that you will support this inaugural event.
With kind regards
Charity & Community Executive Liaison
