Help make it happen with a donation via GoFundMe.
Urlings CC enjoys a fantastic spirit, natural youth talent and senior players and coaches with a wealth of national and international experience. What’s missing are the facilities to bring it all together. A Cricket Club House will take Urlings CC to the next level, set new standards for cricket in Antigua and Barbuda and make all the difference.
The fundraising campaign has the support from Sir Andy Roberts from Urlings Village, the first cricketer from Antigua to play Test cricket for West Indies. Andy is a legendary fast bowler who also played first class cricket for Hampshire County CC and Leicestershire County CC.
Andy Roberts said: “There’s great local cricket talent in Urlings and surrounding villages. A club house will provide the much needed facilities, pride and focus to bring this talent through to the club and national level in Antigua and Barbuda.”
What facilities will the Club House have?
The Cricket Club House will include home and away changing rooms, toilets for teams and guests, a bar which will also generate consistent revenue for the club, meeting room, trophy cabinet and storage space. It will also include an outside deck seating area that will blend into the shade of the giant Tamarind tree.
What the money is for?
XCD25,000 is needed for building materials, fixtures and fittings. Once the funds are raised the club has access to a large number of local builders who have pledged to volunteer time, skills and equipment to build the Club House.
