Cricket Force 2015

Cricket Force 2015 is just around the corner and we need your help!

Things need fixing up and making good for the new season and we need our members to deliver!

The event will take place on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th April.

We have a number of jobs such as painting, spring cleaning and maintenance, plus fixing up the covers etc. These jobs are suitable for young and old, so no excuses, get yourselves to the JCG.

Please use the form to indicate when you are available to come and help so we can plan a timetable of jobs to be done.

No excuses! It’s YOUR club, and WE need to do the work. Don’t leave it to somebody else.

Pilates classes at Alton CC

We are looking at the possibility of setting up pilates classes with our friends Dave & Karen Evans from Burchfield Physiotherapy.

To establish if there is enough interest to make this viable, please let us know if you are keen to attend classes by completing the form below.

Your responses will only be used to find out who is interested in these sessions and will not be passed on to any third parties.


Tour returns!

We are returning to Cardiff this year for a mini tour. Loose itinerary below.

  • The itinerary is looking something like this
  • Leaving Alton on Sunday 9th August
  • Day “at leisure” in Cardiff
  • Match on Monday
  • Match on Tuesday
  • Return to Alton on Wednesday 12th August

Accommodation is at the Wynford Hotel and is £35pp per night for b&b. The coach option was too expensive so we will travel in convoy by car.

We have plenty of contacts for games but I haven’t arranged any as yet. Any preferences? Obviously, we would like a good size touring party so please make every effort to come along. Non-players and ex-players are more than welcome.

If you are interested, please contact Julian Ballinger, or use our contact form


Colts membership subscriptions

We have set up online payments for our colts members and parental social membership. You can now pay online using the secure links below to our ‘go cardless’ online payment portal.

Change to Friday net times

Friday’s Under 11s and 13s net times have been changed slightly, coming forward by 15 mins from previously. The new times are below

Under 13s Friday: 1915-2045 Start 9th Jan Alton College 12 weeks
Under 11s Friday: 1745-1915 Start 9th Jan Alton College 12 weeks


Alton College nets cancelled, Mon 12th Jan

Please note that due to a power outage at Alton College today all classes and sessions at the college have been cancelled this evening.

Hence there will be no Under 15s or Senior nets tonight.

The girls nets at Amery Hill are unaffected and will be on.

Really sorry but this is completely out of our control


New senior membership committee role

A new role on the committee has been proposed of Senior Membership Secretary. The aim of this position is to

  • Liaise with the treasurer about paid / unpaid / concessionary membership subscriptions
  • Liaise with the captains or play-cricket website about paid / unpaid match fees
  • Chase any unpaid moneys
  • Notify and enforce any restrictions for those that have outstanding fees.
  • This does not include the colts section, which is a separate position.
This is important for the following reasons
  • Creating equality by ensuring all players are paying their far share
  • Ensuring the club does not lose out on any revenue owed due to the ever increasing costs of running the club
  • Ensuring people are paid up members and therefore covered by the club’s insurance (any non-members are not covered, social membership does count).
Please do let us know prior to the AGM if you would be interested in taking up this role,

The club does not run itself, and relies on an ever-reducing number of people to do the work – which makes us stretched, stressed and susceptible to error.


Chairman stands down

It with much regret that I am formally announcing my intention to stand down as Chairman of ACC. My work commitments have increased significantly over the past 2 years and, with the increasing amount of time I find myself in Germany, I just don’t have the time to commit to such an important and pivotal role in the club.
