Harpenden Cricket Club News story


Keep well tomorrow!

12 Aug 2022

I know, I can hear some of you groaning on receiving an email from us that might be considered a bit patronising, but we do have a duty of care as a cricket club to try and ensure everyone stays well, and as we all know players will experience extreme heat tomorrow. 

Just follow the basics:

  • Stay in the shade when you can
  • Some sort of hat might be in order
  • Drink lots of water (what you choose to drink later in the day is up to you)
  • Wear some sun cream (Baz Luhrmann is particularly wise on this - look it up kids)

The league has given special dispensation over start times and intervals tomorrow, so keep an eye out for messages from your skipper, too.

Have a great day, keep an eye out for one another, and one day I might tell you about the time I batted for two days under scorching heat in Barbados…… (OK a tiny bit of editorial licence there)

best wishes
