Tenterden Cricket Club in Kent is bowled over by its most triumphant season to date – and we’re delighted to have been involved in their promotion-winning campaign.
Our South East business unit, which is preparing to launch high-quality homes at Three Fields on the outskirts of Tenterden, donated £2,500 to the club in March 2015 to help them prepare for their most important season yet.
The sponsorship funded new training and playing kit for the club’s 2015 season, which saw them promoted to Kent Premier League Division One for their next season in 2016!
As part of our sponsorship deal with Tenterden Cricket Club, a Taylor Wimpey banner was also on display at their ground throughout the season.
Tevis Knight, Tenterden’s First XI and club captain, says: “We’re an amateur club who will now be playing at a semi-professional standard, so cricket is a serious hobby for all of our members.
“This is the biggest success the club’s ever seen, and for a town and club of our size we know we’re doing extremely well!”
Now that they’re on top of their game, the club is looking forward to starting their next season in May 2016.
“This year’s season didn’t get off to the greatest start, but the players’ performance improved and now everyone’s keen to get going again next year. We will hopefully have some new faces to join us too,” Tevis adds.
“It’s amazing that we’ll be competing against professional cricketers who play the sport full-time, so our biggest aim is to not get relegated next season and to stay in our current position for as long as possible.
“We decided to get in touch with Taylor Wimpey prior to the start of this season, as they are building new homes in Tenterden so we thought it would be good exposure for them and a great opportunity for us.
“We’d like to say thank you for their sponsorship, it was hugely beneficial to us and it really increased morale at the club as everyone felt like a team. We look forward to hopefully working with Taylor Wimpey again in the future.”
