With the format of the Summer Ball now almost finalised, please find below the full details from organiser Rob Batey.

Summer Ball to be held on Saturday July 15th 2017

7pm for 7.30pm

Upon arrival at the magnificent marquee, dominating the Walton Lea skyline, you will be greeted with a refreshing summer cocktail (perfect!) and the siren call of Miss Dolly Ray Croot, our live music for the's a video of her on that new fangled YouTube...

Whilst you are mingling and congratulating everyone on 4 fantastic wins for the club that weekend (possibly), you will suddenly notice the delightful sharing platters of meats, cheeses, and vegetables enticing you to your tables.

Busily tasting the mouth watering delicacies, Ian Buttress will provide you with an opening address, the toasts and grace (no doubt the highlight of the evening).

Don't forget to put some money in the envelope on the table so you can win guaranteed £££ in another edition of 'Heads or Tails' (disclaimer you may not win any £££ but that's your risk to take).

Now is the time to make the most of the 'Posh Buffet' lovingly created by Chef Martin - paella, whole salmon, vegetable name it, there's a possibility it will be included in tonight's menu!

Oh and what's this?! Meringue, summer fruits, cream, lemon tart, chocolate tart? Don't mind if I do!!

Suitably stuffed and refreshed, Dean Headley will now appear, to wow you with tales of Darren Gough getting drunk in Australia, Angus Fraser getting drunk in The Caribbean, and Phil Tuffnell getting drunk everywhere.

At this point you'll think...'I'd really like to buy some sporting memorabilia, the chance to watch a football match, or perhaps win a box of skin care products used by the rich and famous'...well today is your lucky day! Break open your piggy banks and spend yourself's the only way to true happiness! After all, Jeremy Corbyn is now Prime Minister (we all know it's going to happen) so you may as well try to pull yourself out of the gloom.

Now you've bought that David de Gea goalkeeper shirt you've always wanted (why not put it on?!) you'll probably want to dance around in it listening to more songs from Dolly Ray Croot. That's not a problem, because she's back! Try your best to get yourself up from your chairs and do lots of pointing and foot tapping (or dance, whichever is most appropriate). Just as Dolly's set comes to a close, you'll wish you could carry on pointing and tapping your feet. Well at this Summer Ball, anything is possible!

Our evening will come to a close with an exclusive DJ set (exclusive in that it's the only one in that marquee on that night) where no doubt we'll rave until the early hours (or until the licence allows). Glow sticks, Speed, Acid...all these things are banned. But don't let that stop you from having fun.

All this entertainment comes at the very reasonable price of just £400 for a table of ten...or a special individual ticket price of £40.

Round up your cricketing friends and bring them along to what will be THE ONLY SUMMER BALL you'll want to attend this year at Warrington Sports Club on the 15th July.

For tickets and any queries please don't hesitate to email me,
