Parking at Hillhead Cricket Club in season 2018

The Glasgow City Council regulated parking zones which affect visitors to Hamilton Crescent this summer have not yet been extended to the area around Hughenden where Hillhead Cricket Club (“HCC”) plays, but parking in the area is very problematic. The HCC committee would note there is no parking available in the grounds, and ask if cricketing guests can park in the areas highlighted in the following document: Parking at Hillhead Cricket Club

Cricket Scotland Tapeball League Finals Day

Cricket Scotland’s Tapeball League is ready to conclude its first year with a hotly anticipated Finals Day at Holyrood Leisure Centre on Sunday 18th March 2018 – 12 noon to 3pm, Glasgow Life – Holyrood Leisure Centre, 600 Aikenhead Road, Glasgow, G42 0PD.

The competition has included two leagues with over 170 players registered and brought together a diverse range of participants. It has also attracted new participants and lapsed players, with over 70% of players not part of regular cricket clubs. The inaugural tournament has received excellent support and backing from local communities and leaders, including Councillor Graham Campbell and Anas Sarwar MSP, which has helped boost the profile and visibility of the tournament. With a busy and successful year one nearly complete, with 64 matches having already been contested, we expect the interest and team entries to grow in the 2nd edition. I have attached the Tapeball league facts info-graphics and the finals day leaflet for your perusal.

Please read the attached flyers for further information:
