The idea for the Gingins Cricket Club developed in a Gingins backyard where an Aussie family played 'backyard' cricket whenever the sun shone and most particularly, whenever visitors came around for a BBQ. There was such interest, but so little space, that the impetus grew to start a club whereby kids from around the region could come together to have fun learning about cricket.
The idea started in autumn 2007 so as we emerged from winter in early 2008, gear was bought, plans were made and permission was sought from the Commune to play at the Gingins Centre Sportif. The Commune kindly obliged and two dads and their 4 boys held a practice session one Sunday morning early in March which went so well that we spread the news that the Club would launch its inaugral session on March 30th, 2008. We did that and it was a great success.
Three years on and we get up to 50 children from around the region coming to our Summer Sunday training sessions and in our first Winter season (2009), we regularly had more than 20 children participating in indoor sessions after School. We have 7 English Cricket Board qualified Level 1 coaches who lead the kids in the sessions and other mums and dads who help with the coaching as well - it really is a very family oriented Club.
