We are a small village team on the Northern edge of Dartmoor with a thriving colts section & regular Senior league cricket.
After last year’s truncated season all the signs are that this summer normal service will be resumed at Rew Meadow with a full program of Division One North Devon League Sunday afternoon fixtures in place. The Buckley Cup, our T20 midweek evening competition for local teams also kicks off for its 23rd season. If you are a regular player new to the area or fancy getting out on the cricket field for the first time in a while for a friendly we’d love to hear from you – get in touch on 01837 840498 or firstname.lastname@example.org. It is anticipated that the pavilion facilities will re-open from 21 June.
For youngsters we are running ECB-organised ‘All Stars’ sessions for 5-8 year olds and ‘Dynamos’ sessions for 8-11 year olds, running for eight Fridays from 4 June. For more details and to register your child visit www.allstarscricket.co.uk or www.dynamoscricket.co.uk and search for Belstone.
This spring work started on the long-planned new pavilion. A 10-metre long, one-metre deep trench was dug, later filled with concrete, as the first stage in the foundations. Fundraising for the new pavilion continues at www.justgiving.com, then search ‘Belstone cricket’.
When matches are not being played Rew Meadow is available for alternative sports including croquet, rounders and boules. Please get in touch to discuss the possibilities and dates.
There are Car Boot Sales at the ground on Saturdays 12 June and 10 July. Sellers can arrive from 9am to set up, price £5 for cars and £6 for vans.
