Amwell Valley Cricket Club
Our club is a volunteer-run, family-oriented nonprofit organization ran by the members for the members. 2010 was our first year as a club.We aim to provide an environment that welcomes members new to the sport of Cricket as well as more experienced player members. We are running a mixture of "nets" (where we provide coaching on all aspects of the game) as well as informal recreational games where we put our skills to the test. The club welcomes interest from all. Our priority is for Members to have FUN - we want everyone to participate as actively as possible, regardless of ability, age and experience. In addition to regular nets (practice) and games, we will arrange a number of social events throughout the season and look forward to everyone participating. This year our club charity is the Hunterdon Regional Medical Center, Special Olympics of NJ & The Wounded Warrior Project, and I look forward to all our members participating to help such a worthy cause.

Perched on the northeastern slopes of the scenic Sourland Mountain region of central New Jersey, the Amwell Valley Cricket Club offers an authentic recreational club cricket experience for players both seasoned and new to the game. AVCC, founded in 2010, plays a full season of regular games on Saturdays, along with Wednesday nets, on a grass wicket maintained by club members and facilitated by sight screens, state of the art watering and drainage facilities. As a volunteer-run, family friendly nonprofit organization, AVCC puts equal emphasis on three components of the club: sport, social events, and community service.
A highlight of the season is the club's annual fundraising event and cricket tournament, which raises money for a local charity. In its brief life span, AVCC has donated over $20,000 to charitable organizations. The club also seeks to encourage and promote the sport of cricket in the area, through its junior program, winter indoor nets, and various social events throughout the year. With its convivial atmosphere, bucolic setting, and openness to players of varying levels, AVCC is the ideal place to enjoy the game of cricket as it was meant to be played and watched.
