Welcome to
Ballinger Waggoners
Cricket Club

Based in the heart of the Chilterns cricket has been played at Ballinger for over 60 years.

The club runs two Saturday teams playing in the Mid-Bucks league and one Sunday side playing friendlies only. It also has a strong junior section that runs eleven teams competing in the Bucks Cricket Board age group competitions.

As one of the first Focus clubs in Bucks, and also an early achiever of the coveted ECB Club Mark accreditation, Ballinger provides a high level of coaching to all juniors plus a safe environment for them to play in. The Club also offers top-class facilities, including a new pavilion, new nets and a new artificial match pitch.

Ballinger provides a warm welcome to all visitors whether adult or junior and welcomes new members of any age. Contact us for more information

Wine Tasting Evening

Ballinger Village Hall

Saturday 24th November

The evening, which starts at 7pm, will begin with an hour long wine tasting, run by local wine merchant Simon Lloyd of  Lloyd Wines . This will give you a chance to sample generous quantities of some fine wines from independent French and Portuguese wineries that are not found in the usual retail outlets.  During this session you will also have the chance to order any particular bottles that take your fancy in time for Christmas.

The tasting will be followed by a hot meal including a vegetarian option plus hot desert, all put on by a local chef Toby Sharman. We will then have a light hearted team quiz and finish the evening with a raffle draw and a chance to socialise. Throughout the evening the bar will be open and serving a range of drinks including wine!

Tickets are priced at only £25 per head. To book yours contact club secretary Michael Brown  or text to 07831 829405

Community Environment Fund

We are very grateful to have received a grant of over £9,500 from HS2’s Community Environment Fund (CEF) to assist us in improving and looking after our ground and the Common generally. The CEF fund has been created by HS2 to add benefit to communities along the route that are demonstrably disrupted by the construction of Phase One of HS2 from London to West Midlands.                                                                     

                                                    

Promotion for the 1st X1

Our 1st XI has been promoted following a play-off match on Saturday 8 September, which we won.  Next year we will play in a Championship Division made up of the best teams originating from Mid Bucks League, the Chiltern League and the Berkshire League. Of the 11 players in the play-off, 9 were former Ballinger colts, the other 2 being fathers of former Ballinger colts, which says a lot about the club. We will of course be looking to recruit next year for both 1st XI and 2nd XI from the older players in our current Junior Section and also from the parents.  If you want to play, whether every Saturday or just 1 or 2 matches a season, or something in between, do let Andrew Thompson or Paul Branigan know
