The general perception is that cricket is an expensive game to get into, but that isn’t necessarily true.
For cricketers going to their first session at a young age, you will generally be expected to pay only for the session you attend. This could range from £2 to £5 depending on the running costs of the facility and coaches.
If you want to join a junior cricket club, it is likely you will have to pay a membership fee for the year. Again, prices can vary, but from our experience around £20 can be expected. There will then be a match fee to pay every time your child plays in the match – somewhere between £2 and £5.
When it comes to adult cricket, the price does increase somewhat. Adult memberships can vary in price, but often range between £50 and £100 for the season. The weekly match fee (which should include tea between innings in a full day match) will set you back between £8 and £15. Over a season this cost can add up, but as all cricketers will agree, it is a price worth paying to play the sport you love, and these costs are essential to keep your cricket club running.
