The club is an important social hub for the local community. The junior section has been very successful and this has resulted in families attending matches and training nights. The pavilion is available to hire at low rates and is used by the Church Committee, a Shooting Club, a Crib Club and private parties.
The club was due to hold its first wedding on its ground in 2020. Holding the biggest event in the village calendar, The Dymock Festival, as well as several running events including the Dymock Half Marathon and the Poet Potter Weekend.

DYMOCK HALF MARATHON – SATURDAY 18TH SEPTEMBER 2021
- Dymock Half Marathon
- Dymock 10k
- Dymock Festival
I am delighted to say that, after a very difficult year for us all, Dymock Cricket Club (your club!) has rescheduled the Half Marathon, formally added a 10k run and is planning to hold a lower-key Festival, all on Saturday 18th September.
If you can offer help and support, whether it be in marshalling runners, managing car parking, pouring pints, or assisting with competitor registration, we would appreciate and enjoy the widest possible involvement (as with three events, two at the same time we will need help), and look to reward all our helpers, not just with a sense of fulfilment but with free entry to the festival, which will run in the afternoon and build to a full party atmosphere in the evening.
We will also welcome any individual and corporate sponsors for the day and should acknowledge that the marquee for the day is provided courtesy of John Gurney, trustee of the grounds and long-standing member of the club.
Please do respond with any offers of help or sponsorship to Richard Lee (email@example.com or 07989 704591), who is helping me co-ordinate the day along with a dedicated committee!
If you want to run either event, please use the following website to log your entry: www.entrycentral.com/DHM.
