What do we expect from members?
By signing the application form, members agree to comply with the below obligations.
Members contribute to the effective functioning of the club, e.g. participate in required house-keeping (maintain club material, preparation of the ground, cleaning of rented facilities). This requires a shared responsibility and a willingness to invest time before and after practice/matches. Members (junior/senior) who participate regularly to practice and actively support the club may get more opportunitiez to play than others.
Members should acquire their personal cricket equipment within a reasonable time after becoming a member (bat, pads, gloves, body protection, whites when playing matches).
Members will respect the BCF rules of conduct during club practice, friendly and official matches.
Members should be able to make themselves regularly available for matches. This should not be confused with a right to participate in the club's matches: the captain has the exclusive right to select a team. There is no appeal against his decision.
