Banbury Cricket Club lands sponsor partnership with area home builder
Banbury Cricket Club has teamed up with area home builders as the club's next major sponsor
Five star homebuilder David Wilson Homes Mercia, building nearby at The Pavilions in Banbury, will be the club’s new main sponsor for the next five years.
The sponsorship will allow the club to secure services of county cricket players for the team and continue to provide top quality sports services to children and young people in Banbury following the pandemic
Martin Phillips, chairman at Banbury Cricket Club, said: “We are extremely proud to be able to provide some of the best club cricket facilities in the country to families from the Banbury area, but like all local clubs we are entirely reliant on volunteers and support from the local business community.
“On behalf of the members of Banbury Cricket Club, including the 150 plus children and young people who train and play using our facilities each week, I would like to thank David Wilson Homes for its support.”
Reformed in 1949, Banbury Cricket Club has developed in recent years into the leading club side in Oxfordshire, winning the inaugural Home Counties Premier League in 2000.
The club presents a range of teams for all ages and abilities including: social Sunday team, ladies’ teams and youth teams offering sessions for those aged six years upwards.
Dominic Harman, managing director at David Wilson Homes Mercia, said: “We are thrilled to be supporting Banbury Cricket Club as part of a new five year partnership.
“As a leading homebuilder we are committed to creating a positive impact on the surrounding areas in which we build. We are pleased to have been able to contribute to Banbury Cricket Club to enable children and young people in Bodicote to make use of the fantastic facilities and sporting activities that the club provides.
“We look forward to working with the club throughout this season and seasons to come and watching the club and young sportspeople grow and develop in their abilities.
“I am passionate about local sport, and it is heart-warming to see that even in these uncertain times businesses are willing to work in partnership with clubs like ours. It will be local children and young sportspeople that benefit.”
David Wilson Homes is currently building a range of three, four and five bedroom homes at The Pavilions in Bodicote.
