Firstly, don’t be fooled by the title of this blog. Upswinger is a Cricket Blog about Goring Cricket Club in Oxfordshire, sponsored by Pimp My Stumps
If you are considering playing and want to know a little more about the Club, please contact Kenza Barton (Club Captain) via : email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
We can then walk you through our teams and the matches we play including Berkshire League cricket, local friendlies, our Devon cricket tour and the “GCC Ultras” – our own Twenty20 squad – whom you can contact directly via email@example.com. We also have indoor and outdoor nets with coaching courtesy of Performance Cricket. Net sessions are split for both the senior members and our younger members, The Cricket Academy.
Also, take a look around this site to get a feel for what we are about.
Goring CC is a progressive cricket club embracing a concept we call “Cricket First”. Our goal is to grow the Club, starting from the Academy. In 2011, we regularly had 40 Academy members at the outdoor coaching sessions throughout the summer.
In 2012, via The Ultras, we also cater for those players who perhaps cannot commit to eight hours on a weekend, via the shorter format.
League and Sunday cricket continues to thrive, playing in Division One of The Berkshire League on a Saturday and having a regular selection of local Sunday friendly fixtures, minimising travel.
