    Athlone Cricket Club caters for cricket in Westmeath and surrounding areas. We have players from Roscommon, Meath, Offally etc. There is a pool of about 30 players of various abilities and we have a fixture every weekend throughout the 2008 season, a sure sign cricket is becoming more popular in Ireland.

    We run a 20/20 match throughout the summer as well, where the true novice can try their hand. We also have practices most Thursday nights throughout the summer months where we welcome all abilities also. I will post some details of the 20/20 matches on our website once I have them -

    Hi -
    Maybe this is a good thread to ask this question.
    I have an e-mail address for Pembroke: recruit@cricket.com. I mailed to it recently but I haven't had a reply. I'm in no rush, but I'm wondering if this is current. Can anyone confirm?

    Thanks all -

    Hi,

    Does anyone know if there is a club in the Clare/Limerick area? My brother and a mate are coming over from Australia for a holiday in August and are desperate to have a game somewhere. They both play at home.

    Cheers,
    Mel.b

    There is, it's called the Taveners league and a lot of teams have initially started out there before moving into the Junior leagues afterwards.

    Plays with limited rules

    20 overs per team
    every player (bar wicketkeeper) bowls two overs each
    you cannot be out first ball you face
    you cannot be out LBW
    when you score 20 you have to retire

    It's good fun as a starting point, as for playing regularly myself I played a few seasons with North Wicklow and 2 years with Merrion but haven't played at all in about 4 years now.

    Is there still such a league in Dublin? If so which clubs take part in it?

    Most clubs will have a taverners side. It's not a league either (afaik), just a sequence of friendlies.

    Hi,

    I'm looking to join a club next season but I don't know what to pick.

    I've played three or four matches before at various stages and I'm not much good but I love the sport and love playing it.

    Basically, I just want to join a team to have a bit of fun.

    I live down the road from Clontarf CC and I know a few people who play there so that would be handy. I see they have a sixths team in Division 13. Would that team be serious or would they just be going out with the same mindset as me, looking for some fun?

    The other option is Old Belvedere, as I'm sure there will be plenty of my friends going to play there once the LC is done next year. Also, if I wanted to play with my friends it would be more central for everyone if we were to play in their grounds.

    I'm just wondering which club is best in terms of what I want, just going out to play a bit of cricket for enjoyment and (although winning isn't a bad thing) not having people scream at me when I drop a catch :P

    Thanks in advance.

    If you are doing your leaving cert next year then I would say there would be a good few younger lads on Clontarfs Div 13 side. However, as far as I can see they use it as a league springboard for their better younger lads. The Darcys came through from the lower ranks in recent years and I believe the Delaney brothers are the next rising stars!

    If all your friends are joining Belvo then thats an option. However, they wouldn't be a club I'd reccomend for a 17-18 year old Div 13 player looking to have some fun.

    I'm assuming you are north side of the city but not too far north. Phoenix are supposedly starting a lower division side next year so that could be worth a look.

    Also, similarly, Civil Service have a number of teams in the lower divisions.

    So you have options there! Best of luck

    Clontarf does sound like your best bet, they're a good bunch down there, and if it's close to your house I'd go there. Coaching/training etc. would be better there.

    Join Old Belvedere 4th XI, it's a balanced team age wise and if you're available to play consistently you're almost sure to get a game every week. Age wise it's grand there's a good few 18-19 year olds including myself. PM me if you're interested in joining and I'll give you the DL on winter training etc. Also if you live down the road from Clontarf, as I do, yet consider Belvo an option I take it you are from the College, as I am, and if so you should definitely join as on the 4ths we boast 60-70% of our team being from the College.

    its a pity there isnt a crappy league, that older first timers could join ,now that would be enjoyable


    Chris you could try Pembroke Cricket club , they have got 6 Men teams and its open to first timers and no matter what age you are :)
