Cricket is back! Teddington nets will soon be available to book with some restrictions (2 people per household per net) and subject to registering at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/10eq1YKuC_ywPoSakvjfzO9ZvlcNOPRGDLsje70H2lm8/viewform?edit_requested=true
and paying a £40 Community charge. Demand is likely to be high so sign up asap! Further details to follow.
All recreational cricket is still suspended until further notice – we don’t know at this stage when we will be allowed to start.
When restrictions are lifted, Bushy Park Girls CC will try to ensure the girls get as much cricket as possible this summer. We will look to arrange fixtures through the summer holidays, which we would not normally do, but given the circumstances this is the best option. We suspect many families will take staycations this summer, so summer holiday matches are practicable.
It will be challenging for the leagues (Middlesex and Surrey) and clubs to rearrange new fixtures in a shorter, later season. So please help us with the following:
- Register your daughter (or yourself) at the link below. No need to make any payment at this time, we will work this out later.
- If you know your daughter cannot play from mid-July through August, please tell us.
- As soon as the restart date and fixtures are available – posted on the BPG website and emailed to you – please complete your players’ availability
Training practice at home and photos
As per my last email (30 April), there are several good cricket training videos on Youtube to show your daughter and get her practicing at home. Also some good cricket challenges set by Middlesex Cricket. We’ve posted these on the page here.
Please have a go!
Please send us a photo and/or video for the website and to post on Instagram (@bushyparkgirls).
The challenges have prizes (TBC) so let us know how she does, and send us the video!
We will tell you as soon as we know details about the postponed season.
Keep safe and healthy

Bushy Park Girls Cricket Club
Bushy Park Girls Cricket Club was established in 2012 to provide girls with the opportunity to play competitive cricket in a fun and supportive environment. Bringing together girls from the five clubs based in Bushy Park.
We run five age groups – All Stars (5-8 year olds), Under 11, Under 13, Under 15 and Women. Encouraging participation is our principal aim but we also support and encourage our most talented girls and women to progress to representative cricket at county level (including Middlesex CCC, Surrey CCC and Hertfordshire CCC).
