TGCC sponsorship

FASSI UK are pleased to be the sponsors of Temple Grafton Cricket Club

Tucked away down the tracks beyond Grafton Court, amidst the borage and wheat fields you’ll find The Grafton Cricket Ground, home of Temple Grafton Cricket Club.

Wonderfully rural, charming and welcoming. They are fortunate to play at one of the most picturesque cricket grounds in the whole of the country. There has been cricket every summer at the GCG since 1879; barring a sojourn for the odd war or two, and they are slowly embracing twenty first century life with he recent installation of solar power and showers.

Cricketing ability is completely optional and they offer a range of cricket to accommodate this; they field two Saturday sides in the Cotswold Hills League, Sunday and midweek friendlies against a range of local and international touring sides, midweek 20-over social matches with their Grafton Select XI and a newly formed junior section.

The club strives to maintain a strong social ethos with the emphasis very much on participation, inclusivity and their legendary cricket teas! Regular social events keep the club together for twelve months a year and they host a renowned biennial tour to the Balearic island of Menorca to play their expat cricket team. This tour is keenly attended and they often attract guests and players from other local clubs.

Commenting on the deal FASSI UK’s Managing Director Leigh Carter said “I was immediately struck by the welcoming culture at TGCC & the focus on developing players’ potential within a supportive team. FASSI UK share these values, so I am pleased to have the opportunity to support the club & am looking forward to the new season.”
