The Junior Cricket season started on Saturday 29 August and will run until the end of September.

Junior Cricket at Standard this year is organised at the under 11 and under 16 level in accordance with Phase 5 of the France Cricket guidelines. This means that we will be focusing on individual skills for all players with strict social distancing, limited interactions between players and no external fixtures. U11s still play an adapted form of the game that doesn’t require any protective equipment while U16s progress on to play traditional cricket.

At any level your children won't need any special clothing or cricket gear. The SAC cricket section has cricket gear and training aids adapted for small hands (this season we are lending kit so no one has to share), your child doesn't need to bring any gear unless they have some already. 

This activity is run by players from the Senior Cricket Section of the Club.


Junior Cricket fees cover the cost of the equipment, the obligatory France Cricket Junior Licence, and a special piece of cricket clothing.

2020 fee schedule to be confirmed
