To all our Loyal Clubs thank you for being patient with us over the covid lock down 2020.
We are back and here to help you all to get your clubs pre-season started.

WE HAVE A PRE-SEASON SPECIAL TO KICK START THE RETURN OF TC.
We have limited stock available of the Kookaburra Colt 156m cricket ball available at the crazy price of $25 each per dozen. $300 per box.
They are at a great price and would make a great training balls for all clubs.

Let us know if you require any preseason equipment and we will try our best to source it for you.
The BHRDCA Historian (Andy Lambert) has just finished compiling the latest update to the Association’s records, which now includes additional material sourced from Clubs/Contacts to the end of the 1972/73 season. He has accumulated the results & player records (where obtainable) from every match played >32,000 scores between 1890/91 and 1972/73. Recording the era between 1973/74 and the commencement of MyCricket (late 2000’s) is now also underway…
Check out the new upload on the BHRDCA Heritage link > Heritage/History & Records > Records & Statistics > BHRDCA Records (1890/91 to 1972/73) which highlights the history, success (and failures) of every club in this period as well as the best performances across this significant span in the competition’s history.
Enjoy the read and if anybody can offer Scorebooks, Annual Reports or other records of the pre 1973 era that could add to the Association records, don’t hesitate to get in touch with a member of the Heritage Committee (contact details on the Website) or the BHRDCA Admin. Mgr.
CV have presented to more than 1000 people on Webinars this week and a lot of BHRDCA clubs and people attended.
The situation continues to evolve and change daily and Sunday will see further announcements. That will lead to more discussions next week where CV will ensure we are best placed to commence the season.
There are a number of guidelines around return to play where the initial Government advice did not make sense to cricket people. No spectators and no equipment sharing (especially for juniors) are good examples. CV are addressing these issues and seeking clarification.
Regional cricket is due to commence competition in mid October so we will have real data to help us start our season.
The next few weeks will provide greater clarity towards our goal of starting the season on November 14.
We ask all to hang in there, we are getting close to training and playing.
Stay safe. BHRDCA CoM
