Abberton & District Cricket Club Members' Notices


Members are politely reminded that subscriptions for 2022 are now due. For more details on membership options for our club please click here.


Please note that not everybody likes dogs. Even fewer appreciate stumbling across your dogs deposits whilst walking around the boundary, especially if you happen to be wearing open-toed shoes! At present, dogs are permitted on the ground, but please, if your pet inadvertently makes a deposit of solids (unscheduled or otherwise), clear it up so as not to inconvenience others. Disposable bags can be obtained from behind the bar.


We like to maintain healthy relationships with our neighbours but this situation is greatly compromised if our members and visitors park vehicles in their gardens or across their drives. Please spare a thought for our neighbours and make sure that their accesses remain unblocked at all times.

The club has received a couple of messages recently from local residents asking for more consideration when it comes to parking. There have been occasions this season where the access road to the two houses at the end of the driveway has been restricted due to poor parking. Please also ensure you do not park obscuring the driveways of these houses too.

The club has been busier this season, especially on Friday nights, but please make sure you park considerately for our neighbours. There is usually plenty of room on the grassed area by the practise nets, so please park there first if there is room.


Please note that the striking of golf balls, either from or on to the ground, is strictly prohibited. If individuals persist in ignoring this directive then membership may be revoked and a ban imposed opon the invididual.
