On Friday 14th April, the Club are off to the dogs! Nottingham Greyhound Stadium is the venue for the first bash of the new (pre) season!
First race is at 6.28pm, with the last race at approximately 10.15pm. These nights are a fun evening and a great way to start the new season. Tickets are £5 per head, under 18's are admitted free with a parent.
For tickets contact Rich Lee.
The 'tweaking' is over and all senior fixtures are now good to view.
All the Saturday 1st & 2nd team matches can be viewed on the calendar page or via the fixtures page on play cricket.
The Sunday fixtures have now been uploaded onto the calendar page, but have not yet been uploaded onto play cricket.
So, all this means that the 'pre/early season' looks like this:
The junior fixtures have yet to be finalised. As soon as they are received they will be published on the website & on the play cricket site as well.
A second draft of fixtures have now been received!
With Hoveringham now having pulled out of the league, there will now be just 9 teams (16 fixtures) in Division 2. Mainly due to this, attempts are being made to 'tweak' one or two fixtures so we can play in the summer rather than mid April! Watch this space.
New season - New Captain!
It's a welcome return to Calverton for Ryan Evans and with it the Captaincy of the 1st XI. Congratulations Ryan and good luck for the 2017 season.
Graham Waghorn continues in Post as the 2nd XI Captain and Kyle Welch will be the Sunday Captain.
On the Committee front, Scott Andrew, Amanda Walker and Lorraine Andrew were all elected to stand.
All the Saturday fixtures for the forthcoming season for both the 1st XI and the 2nd XI have been uploaded onto the play cricket site.
The 1st XI will be playing in Division B and the 2nd XI in Division H of the South Notts Cricket League. Thankfully the fixtures are far more 'user friendly' than last year, with both teams starting the season on Saturday 6th May and finishing on Saturday 2nd September. There are no 'blank' Saturdays and no Bank Holiday games.
The 2nd XI kick off the season at home to Bottesford, whilst the 1st XI make the short trip to Hoveringham. To see all the fixtures, click on the link above.
The AGM is fast approaching!
Please make every effort to attend - IT'S YOUR CLUB!
The Sunday fixtures for the forthcoming season have been received but have yet to be ratified.
In all probability, there won't be any changes to the fixtures we have, but to be on the safe side they won't be uploaded to play cricket until ratified. Assuming there aren't any changes, the first three games will all be at GLA in April on the 16th, 23rd and 30th against Gedling Colliery, Attenborough and Radcliffe on Trent.
This year will see a change in the format of the Cope Cup.
Ten teams will be competing in this season's competition in two leagues of five. Each team will play each other once in their respective leagues and after the completion of all four league matches, the two teams finishing top of each group will then contest the final of the Cope Cup. Second placed teams will play in the final of the Singleton Trophy, third placed the Pykett Plate Final and fourth placed teams will contest the Henson Shield final.
Unfortunately, the draw was not kind and Calverton have been drawn in the 'group of death'! The two home games will be against Papplewick and Radcliffe On Trent and the two away games will be at Gedling Colliery and Whatton.
The other group consists of Caythorpe, Bingham, Flintham, Lowdham and Hoveringham.
This years charities are My Sight Nottingham ( http://www.mysightnotts.org.uk/ ) and the Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance ( http://www.ambucopter.org.uk/ ). Please make an effort to support these two worthwhile causes when playing or spectating at his years matches.
Group games will be played in May and June with the finals in July. To view all Calverton's games click on the calendar link above.

Indoor Nets will start during January and cater for all age groups at two different venues.
Commencing on Tuesday 10th January at the Nottingham Boys High School, Forest Road, Nottingham, sessions will be held from 6.15pm until 8.15pm. The first hour will be exclusively for the 'slightly older' (Years 7 & 8) junior members and the second hour for all senior members.
The 'younger' (Year 6 & under) junior net night will be held on Thursdays at The Mellish Sports Centre, Kemmel Road, Bulwell (opposite Highbury Hospital), from 5.45pm - 6.45pm with the first net being on Thursday 12th January.
If you have any doubt as to which session suits you best, please contact your respective age group Coach/Manager. If you can't make your designated age group night, you're more than welcome to attend the other session. There will be a small charge to cover hosts of hiring the facilities of £3 per adult per session and £2.50 per junior per session.
Net sessions at these venues will run until the end of March, then (weather permitting) we may be able to move outdoors at GLA.
Have a great Christmas!
