Welcome to Worcester Park Lions.

Welcome to the 2024 Worcester Park Lions for 4- to 16-year-olds programme with our new Lions match kit (soon to be launched!) and exciting new professional coaching team under Head Coach Vijay!

For 2024 we are also excited to be entering our first ever girls league teams, with a view to expand this in future years.

For 2024 we are expanding last year's coaching team under head coach Vijay, and his team of professional coaches to deliver the weekly coaching programme alongside our existing volunteer coaches. This continues to provide our Lions with the best possible coaching and allow the club to grow sustainably.

The cost for the 2024 season is £160 (£130 for siblings), with each Lion receiving a free Lions playing shirt and trousers, plus a family membership to access the social club and bar.

During these tough times, if the cost is a barrier for continuing cricket at WPCC, please approach one of the age group managers. We would be open to discussing your situation to ensure your child can continue to enjoy playing cricket at WPCC.

All Stars (Aged 4-8)
We ran one of the most popular all stars centre in Surrey in 2023 and for 2024 will once again be running our popular coaching programme on Tues, Thurs and Fri evenings, providing a fantastic first experience for all children aged 4-8 where they’re guaranteed 10 weeks of jam-packed fun, activity and skills development. The programme is designed to introduce children to the sport in a fun way, teach them new skills, and help them make friends. All Stars starts May 2024 with bookings opening in February.

Dynamos (8-11 year olds)
Dynamos Cricket provides a fantastic basic introduction for all children aged 8-11 who are new to the sport! Complementing junior cricket, Dynamos provides children with a more social offer, focused on developing fundamental movement skills and applying them in an exciting game of countdown cricket. Dynamos starts May 2024.

Wet weather
In the event of rain on training nights, or heavy rain during previous days, parents MUST check with coaches that practice is still on BEFORE leaving their son or daughter at the club. Please keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter for updates.

We are always looking for parent helpers on club nights and matchdays, progressing onto coaching courses if desired - please contact The Lions Team if you are interested in getting involved.
