Sporting Blakesley

Sporting Blakesley encompasses the sports of cricket, tennis and football within Blakesley. We support the development of the next generation of players through coaching and training. We also bring the community together through events such as the free Easter Egg hunt we provide each year and the pensioners' lunch, plus the regular sporting fixtures throughout the year. We raise money to support these activities by regular subscriptions, an end of year dinner with auction and various fundraising events such as car rallies, the Easter duck race, family fun day and an annual Sevens tournament involving teams from around Northamptonshire and the surrounding area.

Our Constitution is available here.

The cricket net has arrived.....

Sporting Blakesley have installed a cricket net at the playing field to support the ongoing development of our junior (and senior) members. Providing a safe area for our budding cricket stars of the future to practice will ensure that the future of Blakesley CC will be in safe hands.

We also hope to offer free cricket training sessions during the summer school holidays. We welcome boys and girls of all ages and standards to join us. Further details will be provided in due course.
