Ryton Cricket Club is an Amateur Cricket Club based in Gateshead, Tyne & Wear. The club is based at the centre of the local community and has excellent links with local schools, providing an opportunity for school children to learn and develop new skills as well as giving them an opportunity to play competitive cricket.
We have two Senior Cricket teams, playing in the Wellstream Northumberland and Tyneside Senior Cricket League. The first XI play in A1 Division, and the 2nd XI play in B2.
There are four junior teams within our club, U11, U13, U15 and U18.
We have recently installed an excellent 2-lane artificial practice facility which is entirely enclosed and provides superb practice opportunities for all members.
Winter training takes place on Tuesday evenings at Charles Thorp School. U7-U11 is 5-6pm, U11-U13 is 6-7pm. Senior practice will start after Christmas on Tuesday evenings between 7.30-9pm.
Outdoor training will take place once the season starts in April on Thursday evenings for seniors, 6-8pm. Junior training will be on Fridays 6-7.30pm.
Our clubhouse is free to hire for functions and is an
excellent venue for parties, Christenings and any such gathering of large
amounts of people.
