Car parking

Car Parking

Our apologies to members coming by car; currently there are 2 piles of gravel in the car park taking up space and creating a hazard. This material has been delivered for use to replace one of the artificial cricket wickets shortly. Meanwhile it is in the way and an eyesore – we do know and it will be used as soon as possible.

The new company Brondesbury Sports Club

The new company Brondesbury Sports Club

Brondesbury is now a company limited by guarantee called Brondesbury Sports Club. This was agreed in principle at the last AGM and in detail at the EGM held in March. The Constitution has been replaced by the Memo & Articles - amended 22-03-2016 and the Company Regulations - final version 22.03.2016 here.

There are a few important pieces of information which you should read, and these should be relayed to all adult members of your family (and juniors nearing their 18th birthday) if you are the household member receiving club newsletters for the whole family:-

  1. As before, all communication to members will be by email, unless you let us know otherwise.

  2. All paid up full adult or life members of the Company have voting rights, social members do not.  

  3. When a junior member in a family becomes 18, he/she will automatically become a voting member of the Company.  He/she will not receive individual notification of this.

  4. Should other members of your household unit wish to receive newsletters  separately, they should inform Edward Ben-Nathan who looks after our website, by email on tennis@brondesburysc.co.uk explaining which newsletters they wish to receive – tennis, squash and/or Club.

One of the reasons for becoming incorporated is to help the Club to become a CASC (Community Amateur Sports Club) which has many tax advantages. We have now started this process and will let you know when we have registered as a CASC.

ECB NATWEST CRICKETFORCE NATIONAL SHOWCASE

 

FRIDAY 1ST APRIL 2016

 

Calling all members – tennis and squash too!

 

Middlesex Cricket Board (MCB), as the governing body for cricket in the local area, is delighted to be working with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Brondesbury Sports Club, as one of four EXCLUSIVE national showcase clubs for NatWest CricketForce 2016.

 

NatWest CricketForce encourages sport supporters, their friends and families to give back to their club by volunteering to undertake renovation work in clubhouses and grounds, typically over a specific weekend before the season starts. The ECB have a number of official supporters of CricketForce who offer those who register a variety of discounts on items such as scoreboards, flat sheets, ground equipment, paint and much, much more. Further information can be found at: www.ecb.co.uk/cricketforce.  

 

On Friday 1st April 2016, staff from NatWest, the MCB, ECB, as well as Middlesex CCC and England cricketers will join volunteers from Brondesbury Sports Club and the local community to come together and make a huge difference to the facilities at your local club (including the tennis and squash clubs). This will be reported on by local and national press, alike.

 

This once-in-a-lifetime initiative will only be as successful as the people and businesses that get involved and support the project. However, the club is NOT after your money (though all donations would be gratefully received!); rather, it needs peoples’ time and any expertise and/or materials that you can provide. It would be great to have you on board, in whatever capacity you can help.

 

For further details regarding the event and how you can get involved, please contact Adam Wilson (1st XI Captain at Brondesbury Cricket Club) on 07756783444 or  willow1988@hotmail.co.uk

Or if you are tennis or squash and have specific ideas on how to help your section, please contact either the Club Secretary, or Edward Ben-Nathan for Tennis and Adam Lennox for Squash.

We look forward to seeing lots of members lend a hand on April 1st.
