Uniforms

A CDCC junior playing shirt, a CDCC cap or wide-brimmed hat, long white cricket pants and runners. Sunscreen is also advised.

For training, a white, or predominately white, shirt should be worn.

Equipment

Players must supply their own groin protector (i.e. a box). The club cannot supply these.
The next important item is a helmet. While helmets may be shared, individual helmets reduce the transfer of head lice.
Helmets MUST be worn whilst batting, whether playing or training.

Batting gloves, pads and a bat can be purchased at any cricket shop.
Junior teams may have their own Kit Bag with an assortment of pads, gloves and helmets to be shared by players who do not have their own equipment. We cater for both left and right-handers.
