ABOUT BALLYMENA CRICKET CLUB

Ballymena Cricket Club is a section of Ballymena Rugby Club with whom we share the ground and facilities at Eaton Park.

The club operates four adult teams and teams at every junior age group. Adult nets are held throughout the summer from 6.30pm on Tuesday evenings for 1st/2nd XI squad and Monday evenings for 3rd/4th XI squad. Thursday evening is club night for all players.  We always welcome new players to the club. If you are interested in playing, simply come along to one of the sessions or contact any of the club contacts.

Anyone interested in playing junior cricket can contact the Youth Convener for the details of junior sessions.

We are also always looking for parents willing to assist with coaching at a junior level.  No experience is necessary, just enthusiasm and a little bit of spare time!  Again, please contact the Chairman or the Youth Convenor if you are interested.

SENIOR CRICKET

The club runs four adult teams within the Northern Cricket Union:

The 1st XI plays in Section 1 of the Robinson Services League and competes in the NCU Challenge Cup and Twenty20 Trophy and the Irish National Cup.

The 2nd XI plays in NCU Junior League 3 and competes in the NCU Intermediate Cup.

The 3rd XI plays in NCU Junior League 6 and competes in the Minor (Lindsay) Cup.

The 4th XI plays in NCU Junior League 8 and competes in the Minor Qualifying Cup.

Practice sessions are held on Monday and Thursday evenings at 6.30 p.m. throughout the season.

We are always on the lookout for new players at all levels.  From current players to those considering resuming their cricketing careers after a lengthy absence, you will be given a warm welcome at Eaton Park.  Simply come along to one of the practice nights or contact any of the club contacts.
