The Old Wimbledonians CC is a sociable, inclusive, community-driven cricket club with a number of teams. Ranging from 4 Saturday League sides, to Friendly Saturday and Sunday sides through all age-groups, right down to six years old.
In total we are home to over 400 players and around 40 volunteer coaches, and that’s without mentioning the fantastic support each team receives from the boundary every match day.
We’ve recently launched this new website, are building on the reach and engagement of our ever-growing social media channels, and have invested in several initiatives to increase our existing player pool significantly.
As a result of all this, our club is currently experiencing an exciting period of significant growth, with a strategy in place to drive success both on and off the pitch during the 2020 season and beyond. This is your chance to be a part of that.
We believe that greater involvement with the local community will be crucial to helping us achieve our ambitious targets over the next few years. However, we also believe it’s important for the Old Wimbledonians to become a place that local businesses can rely on to help achieve growth and success of their own.
Please find below a range of opportunities for partnership and collaboration, all of which we’ll be happy to work closely with you to ensure any arrangement is of maximum value to everyone, and tailored to help us both achieve our goals.

We have a brand new website which we'll now be driving significant web traffic to on a consistent basis, through a variety of weekly blog articles, updates, news posts, SEO techniques, and more.
We also have a strong existing following across Twitter (516) Instagram (903) and Facebook (332). We also have our own YouTube channel on which we livestream our 1st and 2nd XI games every week. With an average of over 750 views per match, with our largest ever audience of over 2,500 for the match against Sanderstead CC in 2019, we expect our following to grow and grow drastically as we move forwards. Once the season begins and weekly activity increases, we expect our progress to continue steadily. Here are some opportunities to capitalise on that:
