Great new cricket ground for Wokingham

Yesterday I was invited to the opening ceremony for the new Wokingham cricket ground. It is a fabulous facility. There are two good quality pitches and outfields, five modern changing rooms, a bar, terrace and function room. I have never been invited before to such a high standard pavilion for amateur teams.

It was an enjoyable occasion. The club staged a short 15 overs a side game between two teams of club members. I was able to play for the team that turned out the winner. It was particularly enjoyable to be able to bowl the last ball for victory, and see it knock over the middle stump. After that the high quality cricket tea – with a wonderful chocolate cake – went down well.

I wish the Wokingham Cricket Club every success in their new quarters. I met several keen and talented players and expect to hear more success from them in the years ahead.
