The Bar Is Opening!

Great news. We are planning to open our newly refurbished bar (outside only – how ironic) with a greater range of beers and other products from the 12th April. For the moment the opening times will be as follows:

Monday – 5 to 9pm

Wednesday – 6 to 9pm

Friday – 5 to 9.30pm

Saturday – 5 to 9.30pm

Sunday – 12 to 6pm

We can only open for outdoor table service in line with government restrictions. We have invested in new outdoor seating and hope to have around 40 tables and benches available but if they are all taken, then please wait for one to become free, or leave the premises and return later.

Drinks will be purchased by a dedicated Wanstead CC app which should ensure a smooth ordering process. There will be QR codes on all the tables and benches. If you have trouble scanning QR codes on your ‘phone you can download an App such as  QR Scanner App. Due to the cost of this investment (wait till you see it – it’s better than the Weatherspoons’ one…) and the additional staffing requirements we will be charging a   small service charge of 50p per order to cover these costs. Please be patient as drinks will have to brought to you.

Please remember the following:

  • You must not come to the club if you are feeling unwell with, or have, COVID symptoms, or if you are in a household where someone is isolating.
  • On arrival, you must register using the NHS Track & Trace QR code by the entrance doors.
  • The Rule of 6 still applies at the club i.e. you can meet up outdoors with friends and family you do not live with, either:
    • in a group of up to 6 from any number of households (children of all ages count towards the limit of 6)
    • in a group of any size from up to two households (each household can include an existing support bubble, if eligible)
  • You must not mingle with people outside your group.
  • It’s important for children not taking part in cricket training to stay with their parents as we cannot afford to have unsupervised children running around our seating areas and the ground.

I am sorry about these restrictions but we will only be able to remain open if everyone complies with the above and we thank you for your understanding and cooperation in advance

We look forward to all of you experiencing our new bar, wider range of draught beers, spirits and soft drinks and most importantly a safe and enjoyable place to socialise.

The Nets Are Opening + Membership Renewal

The nets are opening!

Following receipt of the ECB guidelines (ECB Guidance 120421.pdf), we are pleased to confirm that the net booking system is now open. The nets will be open for booking from 4pm-8pm Mon, Tue, Wed next week. Thur, Fri, Sat, Sun will be 9am-8pm.

Adherence to the 2021 net protocol (Member Net Protocol 2021 V3.pdf)  is a condition of use.

The key points of the protocol are:

2 sessions a week maximum

45 minutes a session

Nets cannot be booked any more than 7 days in advance

No more than 6 in a net

Age limit is U10.

Only members, who have registered and paid their subscriptions, will be able to book net sessions using the link  https://wansteadccnets.skedda.com and be considered for selection, once we start playing matches.

Thank you to everyone, who has renewed their membership. If you have not done so, then

1. Adult Playing and Social Members: Go to  https://membermojo.co.uk/wccar

2. Junior Members: If you were U18 on 1st September 2020 go to https://membermojo.co.uk/wccjm .

The club fully appreciates that some members are under severe financial pressure. Paying the club subscription may be a strain on limited resources. If that is your situation, we obviously don’t expect you to pay your subscription. However if you still want to register or are a parent who wishes to register your child then please either contact Jon Gritten, Head of Junior Cricket, or me, as the Management Committee have given us the authority to discuss this sensitive issue with individual members.

A new way to pay match fees!

This season the Club  will be using an online system called Slate (
https://slateapp.co.uk/ ) to make it much easier for you to pay match fees and for us to collect them. Once you and/or your child is selected for a match you will automatically receive an email asking for the match fees, which you can pay online or by using the free app.

In the coming weeks you will receive an email from Slate, inviting you to download and register with Slate. It only takes two minutes to do so and we would appreciate you getting this done by the first game if possible. If you have any problems with getting set up on Slate, please email help@Slateapp.co.uk for assistance. 

Thank you for your support on this and helping to take the club forward.

If you have any questions about why we are using the new system or whether it’s secure etc then please click here Slate FAQs.pdf.

Virtual Run to Ahmedabad - We made it!


Like a perfectly timed run chase, we made it to Ahmedabad with just a few hours to spare before the start!

This has been a fantastic effort from all of our members who have both participated and supported the cause.

On average, each participant has had to cover over 16kms a week and some members have been clocking up over 60 miles a week!

Please do continue to donate to the fundraiser at https://www.gofundme.com/f/race-to-ahmedabad

Partnership with the Corner House Project

The club and the Corner House Project (“CHP”) are delighted to announce a partnership, in which the club will support the CHP’s fundraising activities. The club was recently pleased to contribute to the charity £1,400, which was half the money raised at the successful online race night, the other half going to club funds. In addition, the club’s premises were recently used by the CHP for a very successful drop-off of donations of food, gifts and clothes for a variety of causes.

Based in the centre of Wanstead, the objective of the CHP is to help those that are vulnerable, homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless with the provision of food, warm clothes, and other essentials, as well as support and guidance.

Club receives ECB Clubmark accreditation for another 3 years

Fantastic news, the club has received ECB Clubmark accreditation for another 3 years.

ECB Clubmark is an accreditation scheme for cricket clubs and shows that a club is sustainable, well run and provides the right environment for its members. Clubmark accreditation also means your club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages, as well as assuring parents and carers that they are choosing the right option for their young people.

To obtain accreditation, clubs are asked to provide evidence that they meet a series of criteria. This is done by loading evidence onto an online portal and by demonstrating good practice at a site visit conducted by an allocated Club Support Officer. Special thanks must go to Trevor Hebden who put in over 200 hours of work on this!
