Supporting Our Work

Friends of Dorset Cricket

We would like to establish a network of friends to promote and support the county representative teams, as well as our community programmes.

Friends of Dorset Cricket is a way in which you can support the performance of elite cricketers or help our Community Team grow the game within the county. Your membership fee will be given directly to the operational areas you choose when you join.

  • A membership card

  • A quarterly newsletter with information about developments in our representative cricket and community work
  • Access to food and drink at an annual Friends Day at a representative match, with the opportunity to meet with players and staff
  • 10% off tickets to the annual Cricket Dorset Gala Dinner in November.
