Friends of Arundel Castle Cricket Club



Club update - 30th July 2020

Dear Members and Stakeholders

After a challenging 4 months for everyone, we can now focus our attention on the joys of cricket at Arundel. As you might have seen we have been hosting Hampshire for pre-season training since the end of June and we have very much enjoyed this scheme of work.

We have also been working away in building a fixture list that covers many forms of the game.

We are currently in discussions with the ECB (Disability Cricket), Southern Vipers (Elite Women’s Cricket) and the Sussex Martlets. We anticipate adding extra fixtures involving all 3 organisations within the next week or so.  For all fixtures we will be following all Government guidelines relating to Covid 19.

Thank you hugely for all your support and we look forward to welcoming you back to cricket at Arundel Castle.

Best wishes,                                                                                                     James Rufey, Chief Operating Officer

Welcome to the Friends of Arundel Castle Cricket Club (FACCC) website, which represents something very special. I have no doubt that it will capture your imagination and provide a small glimpse into the outstanding Cricketing and Educational environment we provide.

As a Club, we host the most fabulous and varied fixture list, which includes a Sussex CCC festival, ECB development matches, MCC, Oxford & Cambridge Universities and visits from many established overseas teams. We also host Women’s matches including England and Sussex fixtures.

Members of the Club enjoy free entry to matches along with other membership benefits including exclusive lunches, why not join us?

As well as having one of the most beautiful grounds in the world, we are fortunate to have an excellent Indoor Cricket School, which hosts a variety of courses and educational projects. We also offer opportunities to attend Lunches and Cricketing talks throughout the year.

We work in partnership with the Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation, a charity which, under the leadership of Tim Shutt, continues to grow and achieve the most wonderful outcomes, benefiting thousands of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and children with special needs.  It is the most brilliant scene.

Another real strength is our link with the Sussex Martlets who hold seven of their home matches at the Arundel Castle ground each year.

FACCC with its magnificent ground in the heart of the West Sussex countryside, provides the most outstanding all-round cricketing programme.  I would encourage you to come and see for yourself – you won’t be disappointed!
