Binfield soak up with NatWest CricketForce

Binfield Cc Bowdry Presentation

Binfield Cricket Club in Berkshire was the lucky recipient of a brand new Bowdry (water hog) ground-drying machine through the generosity of Bowcom - an Official Supporter of NatWest CricketForce 2009.

The Bowdry will help Binfield CC by soaking up lying water quickly and therefore allowing more games of cricket to be played. Bowdry is a revolutionary ground-drying machine, designed specifically to efficiently and effectively remove standing water from any surface - be that covers, pitches, outfields.

Bowcom, as an Official Supporter of NatWest CricketForce 2009, is offering a 15 per cent discount off the list price of its Bowdry ground drying machine to clubs registered for the massive volunteering event - which this year takes place mainly on the weekend of April 3-5.

Binfield CC, along with upwards of 1350 community cricket clubs, will participate in NatWest CricketForce that weekend. The programme encourages cricket supporters, their friends and families to give something back to their local community cricket club by volunteering to undertake major renovations to clubhouses and grounds. ‘Do a favour’ for your local club and support the weekend.

NatWest CricketForce 2008 attracted a record 1375 clubs (225 up on 2007), 85,000 volunteers (5,000 up on 2007) and an estimated £35-£40 million in cash and kind (an increase of up to £5million on the previous year).
