Registration deadline has passed – sorry!

The Australian High Commission Cricket Club plays a number of fixtures throughout the year against various high-profile regional and organisation teams. AHCC has extended the invitation for our members and their guests to attend as spectators.

AHCC Australia House Cricket Club Team Windsor

This is a rare opportunity, as some of the games are played in restricted private venues. The first game is certainly in a special venue – Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s private estate at Windsor Castle.

As you might expect, security at this ground is very tight and pre-registration is mandatory. If your name is not on the police list at the entry gates then you will be refused admission.

There is no charge but we can only submit the names of members of the Britain-Australia Society and bona-fide guests you can vouch for.

You are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch – or join in on the Players’ Tea. For the latter there is a nominal charge (£6). Please let us know if you want tea.

All names and car registrations must be provided on or before 5pm on Friday, May 19th and photo-id must be taken with you.

Weather / cancellation – We have been very lucky in recent years and we hope to be again. We do need a mobile number for your party in case of problems with access, and to inform if the event has to be cancelled.

Umpires and Scorers – If you’re able to help umpire for part of the day do please let us know. Umpires need to be dressed appropriately (shoes, shirt and long trousers)

Spectating Players – If you have room in your car/backpack you may like to bring your playing kit just in case (not to mention a picnic lunch)

Facilities – Normal cricket club facilities are available including a bar with snacks, etc. There are some very impressive photographs hanging on the walls of the clubhouse!

Dogs/kangaroos – you’re permitted to bring your canine/marsupial companion but it must be kept under control and on lead at all times  – you do not want to have your furry friend interfering with the local corgies, do you?
