Q: What kit do I need for indoor training?

A: Indoor training is played either at Winston Churchill or Woking Sports Centre or another local sports venue depending on age groups; therefore trainers are needed. It is also useful to wear sports kit – tracksuit trousers and preferably a tee-shirt (ideally white) or cricket shirt. Some will wear white cricket trousers.

Club kit is available for all to use; we will make available bats and balls for the younger age group. For the older boys we have a full kit bag consisting of pads, helmets, batting gloves etc.

Obviously if your child has his/her own cricket equipment, then please bring it along.

For those boys in year 4 or higher, they will be playing hard-ball cricket, we encourage you to buy your own abdo-guard (or box). Also to avoid the box slipping, the boys will either need to buy cricket pants (they have a pocket at the front for the box, or will need to wear two pairs of pants). 

It is also worthwhile to bring a drink of water to training sessions.

 

Q: What kit do I need for outdoor training?

A: Each age group has its own kit bag and this is available for use, however, if your son/daughter has their own kit, please bring it along.

As regards clothing, the majority of children wear a white cricket shirt. Club shirts are available – see below. In the sunshine a cricket cap is also worthwhile.

For those boys in year 4 or higher, they will be playing hard-ball cricket, we encourage you to buy your own abdo-guard (or box). Also to avoid the box slipping, the boys will either need to buy cricket pants (they have a pocket at the front for the box, or will need to wear two pairs of pants). 

Please also bring a drink of water to training sessions.

 

Q: Where can I buy kit?

A: Cricket kit can be bought from various sources sports shops locally or online.

Club shirts, club caps and jumpers and various items of cricket kit can be obtained via Kit Matters on 01483 770163 or contact online  http://www.kit-matters.co.uk/

Also kit can be bought from another local supplier – Keith Hendersons in the High Street, Knaphill (where you can obtain a 10% discount noting that you are a member of WHCC).

 

Q: What kit do I need for matches?

A: Wearing WHCC cricket kit is strongly encouraged. This includes a white cricket shirt and also a WHCC club cap. White cricket trousers are also worn and occasionally cricket jumpers. Most play in trainers, though if you wish you can purchase cricket boots (note it is not always possible to use these on all-weather outdoor strips).

 

Q: What kit do I need to buy?

A:  Clothing aside, it is entirely up to you what you buy.

For those boys in year 4 or higher, they will be playing hard-ball cricket, we strongly encourage you to buy your own abdo-guard (or box). Also to avoid the box slipping, the boys will either need to buy cricket pants (they have a pocket at the front for the box, or will need to wear two pairs of pants). 

Boys/girls like to have their own bat, though in priority order I’d suggest other items you may want to consider – gloves, helmet and then pads. (If you are interested in helmets an adjustable one is worth thinking about, which then will last for a period of time).

Again, just to stress, we do have gloves, helmets and pads in the kit bag.

If bats are going to be purchased, coaches can provide advice on the right size as many juniors play with bats too large for them which restrict their shots.

 

Q: When do I pay for indoor training?

A: Payment is made at the time of registration, which is typically February to April. If you son/daughter is not a member when nets commence, please complete the required form for the age-group manager (he will have a copy for you).
