  1. This organisation currently has no things to do listed.

Formed in June 2012, the Growlers welcome blind and visually impaired people with an interest in keeping active and having fun to join us. We aim to give visually impaired people in and around the county the opportunity to take part in sport and create an environment where they can socialise with people who truly understand the daily impact of having a visual impairment. Although we play to win, team spirit is more important to us than results and we pride ourselves on our unique Growler camaraderie! The Growlers are part of the BCEW Regional League, playing matches during the summer months. We also train regularly through the summer at Hatherley and Reddings CC in Cheltenham and at the University of Gloucestershire during the winter. Our players are of all ages, both male and female. Many of the team had never played before, so don’t be put off if you are new to cricket. You can get in touch via email: edwardahastings@gmail.com. We look forward to hearing from you if you think you might like to join us.
