Swindon Cricket Club Celebrating 175 Years
2019 sees Swindon Cricket Club celebrate their 175 years as a club, making them one of the eldest in the country. Throughout the year, Swindon Cricket has a number of events planned to celebrate this momentous occasion and you can be there with them!
They have already completed their 175 mile fun run which saw over 60 runners work together to complete 525 laps of their ground! The event was supported by all ages of the club from their 5 year old all stars right through to the club president. The event raised over £1000 worth of sponsorship money, which helps the club to continue to provide the services they do and help develop the club further.
On the weekend of 6th/7th July, SCC are inviting everyone to come and join them to celebrate 175 years of Swindon Cricket Club across three events:
1) Saturday 6th July - 'Old boys' Saturday - Swindon CC will be playing a league game during the day and would like to invite all the 'old boys' (and girls!) to join them for afternoon tea, drinks and reminisce about the glory days.
2) Saturday 6th July - Saturday evening P-A-R-T-Y - A big celebration party in the pavilion including a band and food. A right royal knees up to celebrate the 175 milestone.
3) Sunday 7th July - Sit down meal and T20 cricket - A two course sit down meal, plus special guests, supported by Swindon Rotarians. The entertainment will be provided in the form of a T20 round robin tournament.
