A lot of changes have occurred at Ropley C.C. for this summer 2015 season. A new President (Dave Forrest), Chairperson (Mark Reed), treasurer (Chris Burton), 1st and 2nd XI captains (Alexander Stogdon & Tom Stroud) and overseas player (Michael Abbot) to name but a few.
But some things remain the same, we still are a welcoming, forward thinking and embracing club with a vision to provide a facility where all ages and abilities can learn, play and take part either socially or competitively within a safe, friendly and welcoming environment.
We aim to build on our junior membership, with an emphasis on developing the girls’ section, support the ladies’ new thriving section and continue to provide coaching support and recognised qualifications to those interested in entering this aspect of the sport.
New players and social members are always welcome, as are those who wish to volunteer for the many and varied support activities required to maintain the club. Ropley C.C. provides a coaching pathway via the ECB and will also support individuals who wish to qualify in umpiring or scoring. We also provide youth development opportunities via Duke of Edinburgh, sport development activities and links to County & National development programmes.
Junior coaching is on Thursday evenings - please see the junior section of the site
Mens/Ladies and Junior (over 16's) coaching is Tuesday evenings
Ladies training is on Tuedday evenings including T10 County softball

cricket club is the centre piece of village life. The club welcomes all new members and spectators will always
receive a warm reception.
Ropley cricket club’s mission is to provide cricketing opportunities for all members of the community. We seek to
provide a club where all ages and all abilities can develop their skills in a friendly welcoming environment. We
are an equal opportunities club and support all ECB’s policies and guidelines. We have included a statement of
Inclusion and Diversity in our Club Rules.

Ropley Sports Club's pavilion was opened in November 2005 by David Gower and was in part funded by a
lottery grant. The facilities are used throughout the week for various clubs and associations. It is also available
to hire for private functions.
