Welcome to the Juniors section of Welwyn Garden City Cricket Club!

We are the local juniors club for WGC, Welwyn and local villages.  We love to see kids trying cricket and taking it up.

Our U6-8 and U9 squads play with a softball.  U10 use an Incrediball.  U11 to U13 play with a junior-size hard ball.  U14 and up player with a senior hard ball.

Juniors are welcome to attend training in general sports kit.  Matches are ideally played in whites, with either a plain or a club playing shirt.  The manager for each age group will provide more information.

The age refers to the school year during which that birthday occurs.  For example, U9 means the school year during which they have their 9th birthday - in most cases, they would be in Year 4.  U11 would similarly be Year 6.
