We have an excellent fully licensed clubhouse facility at the club which is used during the season to entertain our visitors and members. The clubhouse boasts two bars which can be fully staffed as necessary.
The clubhouse naturally looks out over the main cricket field where there is an extensive grass wicket as well as an artificial strip. We also have the added benefit of a second playing area which we share with our neighbours, Ullswater Community College. This is located to the rear of the clubhouse. That second area consists of an artificial wicket installed in May 2007 at a cost of £10,000 and represents considerable investment in youth cricket in the Penrith area.
Practice facilities at the Club have also been dramatically improved in recent seasons with three permanent artificial nets erected towards the bottom of the ground. These are used on club nights but also see use by many junior members at all times of every day and evening - rain does not seem to stop them and only complete darkness drives them to their homes. Our commitment to opening these facilities to all means cricket players of all abilities can enjoy the facilities at Penrith Cricket, Sports & Social Club and with practice we may just uncover the next Freddie or KP!
The main club rooms can be hired out for all types of functions and events - including christenings, weddings, funerals, anniversary's, birthday parties or meetings and conferences and having two bars enables us to allow hirers the privacy of their own function venue. The Club is a popular venue for functions within the town and is the home of a number of activity clubs who visit us regularly.
Our staff will be happy to advise you about catering and bar facilities and if you are interested in coming to Penrith Cricket, Sports & Social Club for an event please don't hesitate to contact us for further details.
The function room is now available for hire free of charge - a deposit of £100 and an agreed minimum for bar takings are required, but the function room is available for parties, weddings and funeral teas free of charge. Any donations will be welcome.
If the bar is not required then a fee of £75 will be charged.
