Base Quantum to sponsor TWCC – Girls’ and Women’s Cricket

Base Quantum is delighted to announce that we are now an official three-season sponsor for Tunbridge Wells Cricket Club’s (TWCC) girls’ and women’s cricket, commencing from the 2021 season.

Tunbridge Wells Cricket Club was formed in 1782 and is one of Kent’s leading Premier League Clubs. For over 100 years it has played at the Nevill Ground, widely acknowledged as one of the most picturesque grounds in the country.

Today, it is at the forefront of the community, offering youth cricket to nearly 300 boys and girls between the ages of 7 and 18. The club runs 15 youth and 6 adult sides, including one women’s team, who compete in national, county and local competitions. It has been recognised by the England and Wales Cricket Board with Clubmark accreditation for its youth development and community initiatives. Whilst girls have always been welcomed as members, a 2009 initiative saw the formation of a girls’ section with an identical format and investment to that of the boys’. Today there are well over 100 female members in a thriving cricket family.

Speaking of the sponsorship, Duncan Hughes-Phillips, Chief Executive Officer of Base Quantum, says:

2020 was a tough year for everyone, and it is great to start 2021 by contributing positively to our local community. As soon as we met TWCC, we were struck by how their professional approach and passion for diversity and inclusion aligned with our own culture. The opportunity to support the promotion of girls’ and women’s cricket in Tunbridge Wells was too good to pass up, and the option to do so over the next 3 years (and hopefully beyond) allows TWCC to make a real difference and create a legacy.

Mark Williams, Chairman of TWCC, says:

We are really delighted to have secured the support of Base Quantum. Their sponsorship will enable us to build on the great strides the Club has made in the development of the girls’ and women’s cricket family, which has seen numbers rise to well over 100. In these difficult times, sport plays a vital role in the health and wellbeing of children everywhere and we are determined to continue to contribute to this.
