PCC is always very pleased to welcome new members, both playing and non-playing, and are always keen to help those interested in a coaching role, particularly parents of juniors, or those able to help in any other ways (coaching, managing teams, administration, scoring, groundwork etc.) The club is highly dependent on voluntary assistance, subscriptions, grants and donations.
Membership and subscriptions are vital to the running of the club. Costs such as running and maintaining the clubhouse, ground maintenance and repair, cricket pitch preparation, net maintenance, training equipment, external coaches, training and match balls, league registration fees, and various insurances all have to be paid to enable us to turn up at the club and enjoy the sport.
To become a full member and avail of the facilities at Pyrford Cricket Club, an annual subscription is paid in full in advance of the season. The committee have to balance the costs of running the club and making cricket accessible to as many people as possible.
Juniors subscriptions for the 2020
Boys & Girls Year U6–U17 @ £140.00.

Existing members have a certain period (normally until the end of January preceding the season) to register prior to new members being offered the chance to join. Once this period has elapsed, new members can join on a first come, first served basis until the particular section is full. Membership of the club is not granted until the annual subscription has been paid in full.
Cancellation and Refunds
No refund will be given if a player registers and then changes his or her mind – put simply, no refund will be issued in circumstances where a player is able to play but simply no longer wishes to play or if due to any other mitigating circumstances other than injury which renders the player unable to play cricket. If long term injury stops a member playing, a refund may be considered on production of medical proof (e.g. a doctor’s note).
If the club is unable to offer cricket due to any unforeseen circumstances beyond its control, refunds are not guaranteed and will be at the sole discretion of the Club Committee.
We don’t have the resources to warn parents if a coaching session has to be called off because of the weather. If you are doubtful about a session being held and want to avoid an unnecessary journey to the club look on the website.
Junior’s should come with a cap or other headgear, cream for protection against the sun and water/soft drink in a suitable container.
The England and Wales Cricket Board has issued guidance on the wearing of helmets. As a consequence of this, the policy is that all Junior must wear helmets when batting against a hard ball or ‘standing up’ when keeping wicket against a hard ball. The Club may be able to provide helmets, but these are limited in number. Therefore, it is suggested that Juniors may wish to purchase their own helmets for the same reason they purchase other protective equipment e.g. pads, gloves. Please also note that batsmen must also wear an abdominal protector (box).
