Interesting one. I do like a *good* match tea and the chance to socialise - but -

1) I dont like getting home at 2030 (The long-haired general is actually pretty good about it but I feel guilty if theres no time for us to do anything nice)

2) As an opener I never feel like I can fill my boots at tea as hate batting/ fielding on a heavy stomach. If I bring my own I have something to take the edge off getting out for sod all or to celebrate a decent score whilst I watch on - I prefer it!

Putting food on post game for players families is something that Ive suggested to the club before but its never been taken up. Anything which ACTUALLY gets players families down will help player retention . If putting on loss leading decent grub or maybe a free wine does that then its a win long term

At least for my club, this has been our unwritten survival strategy: Keep families involved and retain club members. Every effort is made to keep mini-me's and spouses involved. My club organized a women's match for spouses who wanted to play cricket. One team created spots for women to play in.

It is an accepted reality that for us to maintain cricket club participation, we have to maintain opportunities for family engagement.
