Dieu Park Cricket Club is a Leicestershire Cricket Club based behind
the Bulls Head pub in the village of Thringstone. We are proud of the
traditions and camaraderie that has developed over its life so far. The
backbone of this success is GDPCC's group of dedicated, professional and
enthusiastic group of members, who enjoy their time together, both
on and off the field.
in 2020 will see both the 1st XI and 2nd XI teams playing in the Covid Cup Challenge games and friendlies for this strangest of seasons. On
Sundays we have the Sunday XI competing in some friendly fixtures against
various local clubs.
At the weekend the Club train the thriving Junior
Cricket section from as young as 7yr olds to 17yr olds. Matches are played throughout the season on either Friday evenings/Sunday mornings. With the option of winter nets.
Last season saw the introduction of the newest team, the ladies 'Grace Dieuettes' starting the first softball cricket team for the club. We hope that the ladies game will progress into the hardball over the next few seasons. Happy to have new members for this inclusive team. All ages, abilities, shapes and sizes welcome. Monday evening training and some Sunday Fixtures. In the winter the team continues to play indoors and have signed up for the indoor league.
So, whether you are the serious player looking for matches week-in and week-out, or just a casual 'slogger' looking for an occasional match and to be part of a team, get training, learn new skills - GDPCC is the place for you.
