IT was wickets and bats at the ready on Saturday when Cambourne's new cricket pavilion was officially opened.

Prior to the opening of the £250,000 pavilion, the club, which was founded in 2005 and has three adult teams and two junior, had to travel to Cambridge to practise.

Chairman of Cambourne Cricket Club, Danny White, told The Hunts Post the opening of the pavilion was a fantastic way to start the new season.

"The pavilion is much needed and it is going to get plenty of use. It is nicely designed and we have all been anxiously waiting to be able to use it."

The first game at the pavilion, which is located next to the cricket pitch off School Lane in Lower Cambourne, will be played in May when the season officially starts.

Initially the club intends to make use of the pavilion, which was paid for by property developers, every Wednesday for practice. The club has raised almost £1,000 to equip the pavilion, organising a quiz night and bag-packing sessions at Morrison's supermarket.
