How much does it cost to join CSCC? After two years of chaos we have finally been able to review the club membership fees to ensure that we are able to provide cricket for the next 160 years. We have invested heavily of late in both on and off the field activities and want to continue to do so. Furthermore, as the club becomes more professional, we cannot rely solely on our volunteer base to cover tasks.

We have therefore reviewed our current set up, the arrangements at other cricket clubs and also local football, rugby, tennis and golf clubs. We have also listened to feedback from members who feel that a simple payment to cover all of their cricketing costs is preferable, as this helps budget throughout the year and simplifies the match day experience.

Rest assured, the bar will continue to be the main source of income generation for the club and we will be looking to utilise our facilities twelve months of the year to members and non-members. We are also working hard behind the scenes to promote social events and private hire of the club for functions, weddings, birthdays etc. Members will continue to benefit from reduced bar prices, facility hire and first refusal on any events that we run.

We have also decided to borrow the idea from some of our neighbours in that if you were able to persuade someone (your employer, family, business or a contact at work) to sponsor a boarding at the club for 2022, we will discount the profit made on this from your fees for 2022. As a rough guide, the new larger solid wood boards for 2022 should cost £300.00 to a sponsor and the profit of £150.00 can be used to offset fees.

The new payment structure comes in to effect from 1st January 2020 and will ba an annual payment paid online via Spond. During January members will receive a payment request in Spond. Should you feel that you would like to pay then that option will be avaiable, we will ask that this is done by standing order.
