Why Woodham Mortimer Cricket Club
Woodham Mortimer Cricket Club
Woodham Mortimer Cricket Club takes pride in our capacity to offer sport for all ages, genders and abilities. We currently operate in various leagues within the mid-Essex region and have achieved great success in the past years from winning both T-Rippon and Warsop Sunday League division titles. In the past we have been at the forefront of developing Women’s cricket and have regularly produced players that have proceeded to represent the sport at county level. Furthermore, we also regularly host T20, Indoor and friendly fixtures to ensure all formats of the game are invested in and played in the true spirit of the game.
Woodham Mortimer Cricket Club is consistently involved within charity work. Over the past few seasons we have supported large national organisation, such as Pancreatic Cancer UK, where we raised a total of £665.00. However, we also understand the importance of local charities. In recent times we have opted to grant our full attention to the support of Farleigh Hospice, who are responsible for amazing palliative care within our community. WMCC are proud to announce that to this date we have raised a combined total of £1,700.00 for this great cause. In 2021 we have pledged our support for a local foundation that will provide financial aid to various clubs across a range of sport. WMCC will always be there to support those who need our help the most.
Much to our regret Woodham Mortimer Cricket Club has never had a youth system. However, with the introduction of an increasing younger membership base, we are aiming to make this a top priority at the club. To achieve this aspiration first we will need to select individuals to complete their coaching badges. Once this has been achieved we will aim to target local schools within the community to attract attention from both boys and girls that may have an interest in the sport. Once we have gained this interest we can then proceed to offer summer camps and training sessions at our facilities to ensure that young individuals can both enhance their skills and enjoy their Cricket.
