OPCC Colts provide weekly coaching sessions throughout the year - outdoors, at Oakfield Playing Fields, from April to September, and indoors for the rest of the year.

All coaching is delivered by qualified ECB Coaches, with enhanced CRB checks, First Aid qualifications, and appropriate insurance.

All sessions are carefully planned to be age- and ability-appropriate - from complete beginners to County age-group squad members, we can help young players to enjoy the game and improve their skills.

Play Hard, Play Fair

Cricket is a fun sport and should be played with a competitive edge. But all players should know there are certain boundaries which must not be crossed. The most important result in any match is that everyone enjoys themselves.

Competition

OPCC Colts have an enviable record in competitive cricket, both locally and County-wide.

We provide competitive play, against sides from other Clubs, throughout the year, outdoors in the summer, and in the Metropolitan Essex District Cricket Board indoor competitions over the winter.

Cricket is a competitive sport, and we encourage the highest playing standards whilst ensuring that our players enjoy the game and show respect to the opposition players, the officials, and to their team mates.

We are always aware that young players develop competitive instincts at different rates, and hence we aim to introduce players to competition only when it is right for them - when they are ready to enjoy the contest.
