Damazan Cricket Club – Who are we?

We are a group of cricket enthusiasts, of varying ages, skills and nationalities, ably supported by their long-suffering partners. We pride ourselves on the friendliness of our club, and its welcoming atmosphere. 

This is supported by the fact that many of us travel some hours to the club for an enjoyable game of cricket and time to enjoy each others company.

We enjoy the benefits of the Southern French climate, rarely losing games to inclement weather. This combined with our professional ground-keeping results in us being able to play from April through to October.

Who do we play?

We play both Siddall’s cup, and friendly games against other teams in South West France.

However, our ‘raison d’etre’ is playing visiting touring sides from all corners of the world, and from all walks of life. Many of the teams we play return on a regular basis, a testament to the camaraderie created.

 

Format of games

We typically play a 40 over a side game starting at 1pm, with a relaxed tea break between innings. Often, we structure the format of the game to suit your requirements, to ensure competitiveness and opportunities for greater player involvement.


Playing Kit 

It is recognised that plane travel does limit the amount of kit visiting clubs can bring. Damazan CC will satisfy shortfalls if possible.



Refreshments on the day

A full players tea is included, together with hot and cold drinks. Drinks are available after the game. Refreshments are also available for non-playing members of your party. Special or additional requests can be met subject to prior arrangement.

It is possible to arrange an evening meal locally after the game, with or without a selection of Damazan members participation.


The ground and facilities

We believe the ground and its’ facilities to be the best offerred in SW France. The ground itself is large, and enjoys an all weather carpet strip, and sight screens. A practice net is available for the more energetic visitors, both before and during the game.

There are changing pavilions for both teams, and a kitchen. Spectators can choose between a shady or sunny position.

Showers and toilets are available on the adjacent campsite.

 

What about Accomodation and Other Games?

All levels of accomodation are available to suit the pocket of the tourists, and their needs in terms of location in a large town, small village or in the countryside. Damazan CC can advise depending on your needs.

Damazan members own holiday facilities which can also be hired. They give the advantage of general assistance associated with games, and advice on transport and local entertainment.

We have close contact with other clubs in SW France, and can arrange other games for you. Alternatively, we can play you more than once during your stay to reduce your travelling.

 

What will it cost?

This will vary depending on the numbers in your party, and the extent of the services you require. The Damazan CC approach is to provide a single fee for the match balls, the teas and refreshments for the party, and any other specific requirements. It is key to us to satisfy your needs, rather than be prescriptive with our approach. Therefore, please contact our Fixtures Secretary to enable us to discuss what you would like, and to put a package together for you.
