Cricket

Patterdale Cricket Club play all their home games at King George V Playing Field, one of the most beautiful settings for any sports field in the country.

Established in 1923, friendly matches were played until joining the Eden Valley Cricket League in 1960.

Currently playing in Division 2, all games are played on a week end, (mainly Saturdays), commencing at 2-00pm consisting of 40 overs per side.

Patterdale Cricket Club have participated in the Cumbria Villages Cricket League and all games are played on a Wednesday evening commencing at 6-30pm consisting of 20 overs per side. This is meant to be "FUN" cricket and batsmen have to retire when they score 39 runs and bowlers are limited to 4 overs each.

It was decided with regret that there would not be a team entered in the Wednesday night Village league this year,

Our new Mobile Wicket Cover 2015

Patterdale CC boost facilities through ECB Scheme supported by Waitrose

Patterdale Cricket Club has successfully been awarded a grant to enhance its facilities approved by the ECB

The financial boost will enable the club to protect the cricket square with their new Mobile Wicket Cover against the elements without having to cancel any matches.

The funding forms part of the England and Wales Cricket Trust (EWCT) Small Grant Scheme, supported by Waitrose, which creates a sustainable future for affiliated cricket clubs through vital improvement of their facilities.

Waitrose, the England Team sponsor, supported the Scheme by pledging £100 for every four or six scored across the entire home international summer in 2014. The Waitrose donation, alongside investment from Sport England and the England and Wales Cricket Trust, has allowed more local communities to benefit from refurbishments to kitchens and social areas, the purchase of covers, supporting ECB’s Get the Game on campaign, and environmental sustainability in cricket clubs.

Richard Kelso, President of Patterdale Cricket Club says, “We are really delighted to receive this grant to upgrade our facilities. It’s provided valuable support for what would have been an expensive project and helps provide a long term investment to benefit the local community here.”
