Welcome to
Ballinger Waggoners
Cricket Club

Based in the heart of the Chilterns, cricket has been played at Ballinger for over 60 years, and the Club now draws players from all over Bucks

The club runs two men’s Saturday teams, the 1st XI playing in the Berkshire, Mid-Bucks and Chilterns League and the 2nd XI playing in the Mid-Bucks League, one Sunday side playing friendlies only and a women’s team playing in the Home Counties League. It also has a strong junior section that runs eleven teams competing in the Bucks Cricket Board age group competitions, including a very strong girls section.

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 two high quality nets an excellent artificial match pitch and, of course, a wonderful pavilion

Ballinger provides a warm welcome to all visitors whether adult or junior and welcomes new members of any age and ability. Go to Contact Us for more information – or more specifically Andy Thompson for men’s cricket, Steve Conway for boys and Roger Webster  for women and girls.

BWCC v Codiv-19
We are all aware of the difficult times confronting us and as much as we would like to be back playing cricket we have to recognise there are more important things in the world
The ECB has communicated to all counties and clubs that no professional cricket will be played until 1st July. However there has been no guidance as to the possible start date for recreational cricket.
Obviously much will be depend on government decisions as to how and when “lockdown” will be relaxed.
The Club has made as much preparation as possible and we will be ready to start playing as soon as the green light is given. We will start junior coaching on the first Saturday possible and information will shortly be published about cricket courses during the summer. We have moved All Stars to a Saturday morning so there is more continuity between the very young taking part in that programme and the older children attending the regular Saturday training sessions. Obviously once we do start we will be following official guidelines as to how to run sessions.
The local cricket leagues are currently looking at how to manage the season should the go ahead be given and the Bucks Cricket Board is trying to see if its possible to run the junior competitions all through the summer in an attempt to get the children some cricket.  
Hopefully we will all be back together soon but in the meantime we wish you all the best and hope you and your loved ones are safe and well.
If you want any information about Club plans then please don’t hesitate to contact Chairman Andy Thompson or Secretary Mike Tingey

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.
