Kendal Cricket Club flooded for the first time in its 180 year history following Storm Desmond.
The club faces a number of challenges to be ready for the 2016 season but are confident cricket will be played at Shap Rd this year.
Our sincere thanks to everyone who have provided help and support with the clear up so far and to the ECB and CCL for their invaluable advice and assistance. There is still lots and lots of work to do in the coming months and we'd love to hear from anyone who is willing to lend a hand in any way.
We would also like to take the opportunity to wish all the other sporting clubs, residents and businesses affected by the recent unprecedented storms a speedy recovery period and we hope you are all back to somewhere near normality as soon as possible.
Further updates will follow and any related enquiries should be directed to Paul Fearnyough 07826 851981 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:

ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
