Cricket is around the corner!
This time next month – subject to the great British weather, we’ll be donning the whites and striding out of the pavilion to play the game we love. Those who have been to the club in recent weeks, will have sensed the eager anticipation for the coming season. We have a smartly refurbished balcony, freshly painted changing rooms (in club colours), a shiny new kitchen, courtesy of great work from Stuart Rolfe and team, and with Mr Doyle weaving his magic our two fines squares are looking resplendent. Bring it on. First home game for the 1s is April 20th, a friendly v Finchley, starting at 1pm.
Mother’s Day Lunch
Where would be without our mums? Make our clubhouse the venue to celebrate them this year, by booking your places directly with Claudia at email@example.com or by calling 07801 021654. Lovely new kitchen. Same cracking chef. You won’t be disappointed.
Spring Clean: Saturday April 6.
Help us shine up the Pavilion ready for the new season. Volunteers to gather for 10am with tasks assigned by Guy Masters and Simon Wastling. Bacon butties when the work is done!
Club sign on Day: Sunday April 7.
For new members this is a great chance to get all your questions answered and to meet some friendly stalwarts of TPCC. The Junior Management Team will be out in force and new kit will be on sale.

Plans are progressing nicely for the coming season with most players indicating they are, once again, looking forward to bearing arms for TPCC. Only major changes in 1’s are David Brent and Liam Gough leaving to go to other clubs. To strengthen the squad, we have signed Steve Clark and Tom Weymes. We have also signed two new younger players in David Burnell and Scott Rolfe, while Nick Grant is coming over from Australia to play for the 2s. A further update from our esteemed Director of Cricket will be provided at the Pre-season Social!
