The Claxson Group ICT company, Comtec Enterprises with Head Office based in Reigate is supporting the nearby Dorking Cricket Team as main sponsor for the year.
Dorking Cricket Club (www.dorkingcc.co.uk) has long been the established place to play both competitive and friendly cricket in The Mole Valley and there are records of cricket in Dorking dating from 1771. The club has played on the ground in Pixham Lane for over a hundred years. It has provided total enjoyment for adult and youth playing members, and a social meeting place for its many supporters. Over time much has changed, but thankfully the ethos and spirit of its founders, the views from and toward its grounds and the drive to achieve through fair play has remained. The club currently runs three elevens in the Surrey Championship League on Saturdays and two sides play friendly cricket on Sundays. The future playing strength of the club should be drawn from over 180 junior members, from age 8 upwards, who receive regular coaching.
However, heritage and desire alone are often insufficient to achieve success and the current committee at Dorking Cricket Club have initiated a high impact development programme whose intent is to achieve greatness for the club. This programme forms an integral part of the clubs’ “Plan for the Future”, a strategy focussing on achieving excellence and enjoyment through the cautious investment in facilities and people.
