Welcome to the website of Bar Hill Cricket Club.
On Saturday the 30th of March we held a race night at the Social Club. Money raised from this went towards our youth set up and Harry Searle's charity fundraising, which is for Addenbrookes Hospital. In total we raised £515 which was split evenly! Thanks for your support.
Youth training nights will start on Wednesday 24th April at the village green, from 6-7pm (weather permitting), with coaches Dave Allsopp and Peter Stockton once again in charge. All ages are welcome and playing equipment is provided. If you would like more information about the youth set up, please contact David Allsopp, Youth Team Manager.
