The club have a number of boys and girls who play representative cricket with Leicestershire County Cricket Club and many play on Saturdays in the senior teams.

The club would like to encourage people from the village to pay us a visit during the summer months, particularly on a Saturday afternoon when there is always a senior game being played (weather permitting). Friday evenings are also always busy with U11s and U10s matches and/or training taking place every week. The clubhouse has a licensed bar and is open for refreshments during all games.
