Statement in light of recent revelations about discrimination in Cricket
Barnes CC prides itself on being a wholly inclusive club for everyone, regardless of age, gender, disability, race, ethnic origin, nationality, creed, colour, social status, sexual orientation, religion or other beliefs.
The committee looks to ensure that everyone is made to feel welcome and an integral part of the Club and encourages a diverse range of people to get involved in the game of cricket.
Recently reports have shed light on some shocking incidents of racism at all levels of the game across the country. Discrimination of any kind on or off the field of play is intolerable in sport or indeed, society. Cricket must work together to eradicate it.
Barnes CC will be holding its AGM on 12th December and will remind all members that the Club prides itself on inclusivity in its cricket. We believe that cricket clubs at grassroots level including our own, provide a fantastic place for people from all walks of life to meet, socialise and enjoy the game, regardless of anyone’s background or cricketing ability.
