Berkswell Cricket Club welcomes new players of all ages


Berkswell Cricket Club is busy gearing up for the new season with winter training for both youth and senior sections and the doors are open to new players at all levels.


Berkswell’s top senior side plays at the highest level outside the professional county circuit and boasts a squad packed full of current and former Warwickshire players and one former England International.


The youth section has become equally successful in recent years, boasting squads at every age group that finished first or second in their respective leagues in 2013.


The club is now inviting new blood to come along and get involved, with a youth section that enjoys some of the best coaching available anywhere. The coaching staff regularly includes current and former professional cricketers, courtesy of a partnership with the formidable coaching outfit Complete Cricket.
