The Holmesdale Junior Section was formed in 1983 by four enthusiastic members, Roger Cruttenden, Snowy Whitehead, Peter Churchill and Mike Dayer-Smith. In the first year there were about 20 children attending on a Saturday morning. This excellent work was then taken forward by Kim Melbourn and Tony Rose and in recent years has moved forward under the leadership of Mike Bryant and Mark Brushett. Over the years there has been a vast improvement with the introduction of Easter Coaching, Tuesday and Friday evening coaching and the Summer Camps and the Club now coaches over 300 children a year, making Holmesdale one of the largest junior sections in the County!
Looking for a fun, safe and accredited cricket club for your son or daughter to learn more about cricket...? Then look no further, Holmesdale Cricket Club offers ECB accredited coaching for children aged 5 - 15 yrs old. All Summer coaching takes place at our picturesque Montreal Park ground on the A25 in Riverhead or at Seal and across the road at Amherst School for our 5-7 yrs olds.
Holmesdale is going digital J. To make yours and our lives easier, we have set up an online booking website for ALL our coaching course memberships. As a member last year, we have already added you to the system, so you have a username. You will shortly receive an email from our system (https://www.myclubhouse.co.uk/Holmesdale ) with your username and another which lets you choose and set up a password. The site is completely secure and allows you to pay by credit card or Paypal.
Online you’ll find details of our junior courses, prices and dates and the system is set so you’ll still receive a £10 discount if you book two courses (events) together or £15 for three. We are excited about this move online, and trust it works well for you, as always please contact me with any problems. For the 2018 season our junior training for Girls and Boys, looks much like it always has with a few targeted improvements which we believe helps us offer our members even better cricketing opportunities. One of the main changes is a move to offer mixed girls and boys training across all our coaching sessions.
