    For nearly 100 years, cricket has been played at the Belvoir Cricket Ground in Knipton. It would be hard to find a more picturesque setting for a cricket ground, set in the landscaped grounds of Belvoir Castle.

    Belvoir Cricket Club currently field two Adult Saturday teams in the Gunn & Moore South Notts Cricket League. A Sunday side in in the Grantham and Melton League and have midweek evening games across the season.

    The club has a thriving Junior section which field a number of different age group teams in the Newark League and as of 2022 a Women's team that is going from strength to strength.

    Women's Cricket at Belvoir CC

    In 2022, we started a Women's Cricket section at Belvoir. The squad developed from early season indoor nets to playing several soft ball friendlies over the course of the season.

    Following a thorough winter training programme, team manager, Sue Sharpe, entered the team in to the Notts Women's Indoor League. Amazingly, they successfully reached the Finals Day which took place at the indoor facilities at Trent Bridge. Huge congratulations to all involved and especially coaches Matt Scott and Tom Lindsay.

    The project and what we're trying to achieve

    The pavilion at Knipton is tired, in disrepair and an eyesore in the beautiful estate grounds. It has no disabled facilities, little indoor space when it rains and such poor toilets that we have to hire Portaloos. Alongside the Belvoir Cricket & Countryside Trust, Belvoir Cricket Club are aiming to produce a brand-new pavilion facility.

    The Belvoir Cricket & Countryside Trust has submitted plans to replace the old pavilion it uses at Knipton and attach a multi-use hall behind it. The sports and education charity hopes that the proposal will help it grow and inspire the next generation to lead healthy, active lives.

    As well as giving the charity a permanent base, it will also be the new home of Belvoir Cricket Club and be made available to community groups and other sporting organisations.

    Former England cricketer Darren Bicknell, who has led the Trust since its inception 11 years ago, said: “The new pavilion and hall will enable us to increase the number of primary age children and special needs youngsters who take part in our programmes from just over 4,000 to 6,000-plus per year."

    Community impact

    Our ambitions are shaped by the need to alleviate obesity, social isolation, and mental health issues in our young people, all of which have increased due to COVID-19.

    Ultimately, this will be facility to be proud of and be able to invite the community to share.
