The Royal Household Cricket Club (RHCC) in Windsor
The Royal Household Cricket Club (RHCC) in Windsor, Berkshire are looking for new playing members.
Establised in 1903 as a sporting and social club for employees of any of the Royal Households, the RHCC play in the private grounds of Windsor Castle. Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, is their Patron and the Duke of Edinburgh is their President. They are both keen followers of cricket and are regular visitors to the Club along with other members of the Royal Family.
The club play around 45 games per season, all bar one at home at their unique, picturesque ground at Frogmore, within a well hit 6 of the Castle walls. All their games are invitational, friendly cricket against a wide variety of opposition, ranging from local village teams and league clubs, to traditional wandering sides and old school teams. They also host an annual charity festival during which they regularly play against sides containing both current and past county and test players. In September 2011 the club will tour France, basing in Bordeaux.
The club's current playing membership ranges in age from late teens through to late 50's with a playing ability equally as wide. The club is therefore open to new players of all ages and standards. Ideally they would like individuals to play 12 games per season. However they appreciate this level of commitment is not always possible so they are happy if an individual can play just 6-8 games throughout the season.
If you are interested in finding out more, please email or call Tom Dore, Secretary of the RHCC - firstname.lastname@example.org or 07810 633807.
