Therefore, members are encouraged to be open at all times and to share any concerns or complaints that they may have about any aspect of the club with Oliver Arnold, Club Welfare Officer, who can be contacted on 07540 320310 or by email at

As a member of Verwood Cricket Club you are expected to abide by the following junior code of conduct:

All members must play within the rules and respect officials and their decisions.
All members must respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
Members should keep to agreed timings for training and competitions or inform their coach or team manager if they are going to be late.
Members must wear suitable kit for training and match sessions, as agreed with the coach/team manager.  For matches players must wear a white shirt, white trousers and trainers/cricket spikes as appropriate.  For practices players should wear a white shirt, comfortable trousers and trainers.  Whenever playing cricket it is always best to wear pants rather than boxer shorts (the latter tends not to hold the protective box in the correct position).
Members must pay the appropriate junior club membership, and appropriate match or coaching fees.
Junior members are not allowed to smoke on club premises or whilst representing the club at competitions.
Junior members are not allowed to consume alcohol or drugs of any kind on the club premises or whilst representing the club.
