Our changing rooms showers and kitchen are seperate attached buildings but have toilet as part. Toilet is only open.

The seperate bar is open and ran as any other bar.

To be fair, our pryamid leads to Birmmgham League but we Consider ourselves warwickshire league. 90% of clubs have a bar woth the exception of second grounds.

How do clubs survive without a bar? Some of my fondest memories in junior cricket were buying lots of cans of 'Rio' to fill a jug if someone scored a 100 or took a 5-for.
Good times! Olton and West Warwicks virtually had their own pub, very impressive facilities (or at least I was impressed at the time).

I'd prefer not to lock this or spend my time deleting all the offending posts, so last warning folks - play nicely please.

My club uses the university ground so while we have the advantage of a lovely pitch and pavilion, sadly at the moment the pavilion is totally off limits. Other clubs we've played at this year have all had their bar open in some form or other though, mostly seems like sensible compromises have been found.

Most are sponsored by the local pub. One of the best things about playing cricket is that you get to visit lots of pubs in towns or little villages you would never otherwise have gone in.

Medium sized cricket clubs with 2 adult teams and 2 junior teams will typically have annual expenditure of between 5 and 10k - you can easily cover that from sponsorship, fundraising events and match fees.

Please tell us all which club you play for and how you raise between 5k-10k through a sponsored agreement with anyone via cricket as I would be keen as mustard to understand that.

That isn't what SLA is saying, he is saying that over a season those teams will put about 5k pkus in revenue through a bar.
That isn't they will make 5k plus in profit for a club.

Match fees and subs alone will be over 5k for most clubs with two adult/junior sides.

This thread is gold!! Even playing Surrey 3XI cricket, I can't remember the last time I went to a club without a bar.

The club bar is part of my cricketing upbringing, development and friendships - I can;t imagine playing for a club without one.

Must be lucky I guess!!

replying to everyone generally: when I was treasurer of a medium sized club we used to get about 1500 from advertising boards, 1000 in shirt and website sponsorship (mostly from local pubs), 1000 from bonus ball club, 1000 from a race night, and maybe 1000 in total from other fundraising events (eg a quiz night, 6 aside tournament).

So you can easily get 5000 without having to ask players to dip their hands in their pockets. That's enough to cover groundsman (about 2500) insurance, match balls, topping up the kit bag, and have some left over to save for emergencies.

If you want any more advice just ask. I was treasurer for 5 years.

What is 3XI cricket? In Cambs only 15 out of ~120 clubs have 3rd XIs. If through some weird system you only ever played those 14 other clubs you wouldn't really get a good feel for the "typical" club setup.

We play 2 to 3 games a week. Our groundsman charges us monthly. It comes to around 2500 per annum. He brings his own equipment. He also does 2 other clubs' pitches. Must be said, he's very good and his pitches are excellent.
