Did you know?.......
If you use a lot of water on your square and outfield you pay for it twice, once out of the tap and again as they assume it enters the sewers.
Clubs can get a rebate on their sewerage costs if they write to their Water Company informing them that they are a sports club and water is used for irrigation. They will ask them to fit a sub-meter so they can advise how much water is used on the outfield/square. Clubs need to submit a reading each year normal at the end of the season, the Water Company will then calculate the amount to be credited back on the next bill.
The meters cost about £25 and savings of £100 p.a. have been reported.

Following their highly successful 2012 courses, our friends at Batting 4 6 are offering Winter coaching for 6 to 14 year-olds starting 1st October running through to Christmas. Here's what they say....
Last year saw the clubs benefit as their juniors had gone through 20 weeks of coaching before starting their summer season. Some of our coaching attendees are not affiliated with a club so we also try to recruit them to their local club and of course some are completely new to cricket. We have seen the interest in this course go from just 12 children to 135 this year which is great news for local cricket and we have many other plans to work with schools over the coming weeks with an aim to gain interest for clubs ready for April 2014.
Each programme will last for 10 weeks with a Batting 4 6 select XI v Lincolnshire U13’s being the finale in April 2014. The exact date is yet to be confirmed. The sessions will take place as before at Ranby House School; DN22 8HX. The groups will be slightly smaller this year, with a maximum of 20 per session. As such we are intending to hold three sessions on a Tuesday evening; 6-7pm for the introduction to hard ball / soft ball cricketers. Then two sessions for the more advanced hardball players, 7-8pm and 8-9pm. The 1st coaching programme will commence on 1st October 2013 and run weekly until 10th December 2013 with one week off at half term which will be 22nd October. The 2nd Coaching programme will commence on 14th January and run through to 25th March with one week off in February for half term.
The cost of each programme will be £110 per person. A non-returnable deposit of £25 is required to secure your place on each course. The full amount must be paid in full by the 1st session of each programme. Parents with 2 children or more will receive a 40% discount for any sibling of a full paying attendee. A full programme will be provided to each attendee before the 1st session to ensure you know what to bring and what to expect at each session. Due to SafeGuarding Children policies we are unable to allow parents or carers to remain on site at Ranby House School whilst the sessions are on-going.
If you require any more information contact Batting 4 6. Contact details are in their ad at the top of the page.
