2020 Winter Nets
Every Saturday, from January 18th up until April 4th, we'll be at the fantastic facilities of Wimbledon College between 10am and 12pm, so come and join us to shake off the rust and fine-tune those techniques!
Of the lanes that will be open, there'll be a lane dedicated to League players and a lane dedicated to those who play friendlies only, with the option of a third net being a bit of both or a one-to-one practice net. The cost per attendee is £5 for full-time employed, and £3 all others (including under-18's) - and the fee is only charged to recoup the cost of booking the nets. The next two weeks are however completely free!
There will be no need to arrive early and set up: the College staff do that for us. They also provide the stumps! All we need to do is respect the facilities, and use them accordingly. Changing facilities are also available. The mats we will be using are spring-loaded; everyone who wants a bat, especially in the League net, is strongly advised to wear a helmet. And bring a ball!
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible - and any acquaintances who may be looking for a club to play for - over the coming weeks.
The AGM voted unanimously to keep the membership & match fees as they have been since 2015, but with a new junior (under 18's) match fee of £5.
MEMBERSHIP FEES: Full-time employed £50; Part-time/ Unemployed/ Student £30; Under-18's £15
MATCH FEES: Full-time employed £13; Part-time/
Unemployed/ Student £8; Under-18's £5
Previous members who play games before paying their membership will be charged an additional £4 match fee (down from £5 last year) per game; so it's best to get your memberships paid in before the season starts! This will not apply to you if you are a brand new player who hasn't played for Merton before; the usual four-game grace period is still in place for you, paying the standard match fee (you can pay your membership earlier or during the grace period if you so wish). If, however, you play five or more games, the additional games will incur that £4 fee increase.
The complete terms and conditions of membership will be released in due course!
