The Projects

Newport Cricket Club has undertaken 2 Major projects in recent years
and is proud to say that we have completed both projects with distinction.

The aim of the club is to build a club for the local community
and cricketers of tomorrow.


The 3rd major Project is probably the most ambitious so far
but one which will hopefully safeguard cricket in Newport for the future.

The 3rd Project is to build an Indoor Cricket School on the site
of the old Squash Building at the ground.
Further details can be found on the website. (see link below)
 
 

PHASE 1

Junior Changing Room Project Completed

 

 May 2015

(See Project Page For A Full Report)

 

It's been a long time, 
nearly 3 years,since the upgrading of the Junior Changing Room Block,
in the Squash Court Building, was first unveiled
but despite many blips and hurdles to overcome along the way,
work has now been completed.

Work began in late March 2015, and was completed on Friday, May 22nd.

As you can see from the pictures below the transformation has been remarkable. 
We now havestate of the art changing facilities
which will more than cater for our many Junior Teams and visitors,
both male and female.      
          
The Project included the following:-
  • *  Signing of a new 25 Year Lease on the whole of the Cricket Ground, including the Squash Building.
  • *  Renew the existing Changing Room Block Roof
  • *  Upgrading / Renovating 6 Changing Rooms including the Umpires Room
  • *  Replacing the Existing Boiler / Hot Water System

Thanks
With the lease now in place,
the whole site has been fenced off adding extra security and there are
aspirations of developing a small cricket museum in the Squash Building area.

 

Newport Cricket Club would like to thank Newport City Council,
ENTRUST and Cricket Wales for all their help,
along with the many contractors who worked tirelessly on the job,
in order to get the facilities ready for the 2015 cricket season.
