Saltwood Cricket Club

Saltwood CC is a friendly village cricket club with senior teams playing in the Kent Region Cricket League and Kent Village League with net practice on Tuesday evenings. Our expanding junior section is set up for girls and boys in Year 3 upwards, with coaching on Mondays from 3.45pm. New playing and non-playing members are always welcome so please contact us or come along to one of the practice sessions or home matches at the weekend. Thanks to our 2014 season sponsors…..

After a couple of years fundraising and planning, the wicket renovation project has finally started. After meeting with a few contractors we picked JGC Sportsturf to carry out the work as they really new their stuff and will look after the square over the winter. Jason managed to make the most of the budget and came up with a plan to give us 13 wickets rather than the original 11 we were expecting. JCG will koro the 1cm spongy layer from wickets 1 to 8, and then rebuild the remaining wickets to a much deeper level. We’ll end up with a vastly improved square for senior and junior cricket and something the club can be proud of.
