Fixture arranging is underway for next season – they’ll be appearing on the website as they get sorted!
It’s all systems go for this season’s Christmas dinner and awards night
It’s at Central Station in Wharfedale Road Kings Cross on Friday 4th December from 7pm
It should be a fun night with the highly coveted awards up for grabs!
Hope to see you there.
Thanks to Matthew our early season tour to Malta is on – 14th to 18th April 2016 – details to follow.
Back in January we emailed Sussex CCC to get some help in finding opposition for our cricket tour in August. We could never have anticipated it would turn into a season highlight! As the day approached with Faye’s hard work at Sussex it became bigger and bigger until eventually there were 6 other teams from the local LGBT community taking part at the county ground in Hove – the first time Grace’s have appeared at a first class ground
Grace’s had two teams taking part in the quick cricket format (6 a side) and after the group matches and semi-finals it was an all Grace’s final! Highlights of which included sixes galore and lots of teasing. Both the chairman and CEO of Sussex came along and took part in what was a wonderful day with excellent organization. Its success means it should become an annual fixture.
We sent a lovingly made cake to the TMS team at the Oval Ashes game to promote our 20th anniversary and they tweeted some pictures – I’ll try to upload them
Planning is already under way for our 20th anniversary next season – a gay Ashes is one of the events we hope to be arranging. If there are any Aussies out there who would like to play get in touch!
Sussex CCC, our generous hosts for our Saturday tour match, have now managed to turn it into a 7 team LGBT cricket festival at their county ground in Brighton!
The tour to Sussex is now arranged. On Saturday we’re playing an informal 3 way match on the county ground in Brighton! Sunday sees us at Rottingdean , a very established club. So make sure you can make it along to what should be a fun weekend
Our first match at Greenford (3rd May) has sadly been rained off!
