RunWisborough 3rd May 2020

We’re pleased to announce that RunWisborough returns for its fifth year on the 3rd May.  Booking is open via our website (www.runwisborough.co.uk) so now is a great time to set yourself a target for the new year!  As always the funds will go towards the new Pavilion project and last year we raised just over £8,000.  If you are able to help on the day or would like to be involved in the organisation (especially if you have social media marketing skills) please get in touch by emailing :chair@wisboroughports.org.

Movie Night on The Green 8th May 2020

As you probably know this year marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day and the May bank holiday has been extended to mark and celebrate the event.  As part of this the Parish Council has given permission for Wisborough Green Sports to hold an outdoor Movie Night on the 8th May.  Families will be invited to bring a picnic down to the Green and enjoy a movie shown on a couple of big screens.  We will be asking for a donation from all those attending to cover the cost of the movie and to raise money for veterans’ charities.  If you can help us organise and plan the event please get in touch as soon as possible (chair@wisboroughsports.org).   If you or your business would like to sponsor the event we would very much like to hear from you.  We have a film in mind but if you have a suggestion please let us know!


The Pavilion will be showing the 2020 Rugby Six Nations games!  See Fixtures below.  Food will be sold at the England Games!  Do join us.


The Stoolball team has had a break over the Christmas period of the Indoor Season. We played Barns Green on 13th January which was a great game with Wisborough Green triumphant with runs of 166 against 136! Some brilliant bowling by Gennie getting the opposition’s lead bats person out on the first ball and a great catch by Eloisa helped WG be victorious! We have matches now every couple of weeks and will keep you posted!!

If any ladies, young or older, would like to join our outdoor team in the spring, please let me know! We really enjoy our games and are lucky to play in a very friendly league with a great atmosphere! If you have played recently at school or you played some years ago, please come and join us in our pre season training which will begin in late March/ beginning of April. Contact Clare on 01403 700584! We look forward to seeing you!


The very wet weather we have been experiencing has meant that hardly any games have been played.  As you can see from the tables below, we are well behind in Games Played vs other clubs.  This weather has really taken its toll on our Home Pitch on the Green this year. 

To be fair a lot of local teams who do not have the money to hire Astro Turf pitches are in the same boat.  

Hoping for a kinder forecast in the next few weeks.
