The members of the MCC were incredibly saddened to hear that the Tetherdown Trundlers had to cancel their tour because one of the touring team's player’s daughters had lost her battle with cancer at the age of 12. The MCC decided to play a club game and donate the match fees paid by the opposition, profit from food sales on the day plus further donations to the cancer charity of the Tetherdown Trundler's choice. The Club was able to donate 1000€ to NBUK, a neuroblastoma cancer charity.
Here is a note of thanks to all those who contributed from one of the Tetherdown Trundler's players:

"As one of the Tetherdown Trundlers I just wanted to say thank you myself for your brilliant gesture this week. It brought a tear to my eye when I heard what you'd done. Rich is obviously struggling but its unbelievable kindness like that which keeps him going.

Well done fellas. I sincerely hope we get to meet you all soon and say thanks in person

The Menorca Cricket Club ("MCC") welcomes touring sides during the summer months of April, May, June, September and October offering a competitive village standard of cricket. Since it's inception the Club has played host to more than 250 visiting teams from the UK, Holland, Spain and even Canada. During the months of July and August the Club runs a special Summer Cricket programme for visitors to the island.

The Club opened it's own ground at Biniparrell on 11th January 1992 and the members created, what has now become accepted as, the most beautiful cricket ground in the Mediterranean. The Club will be celebrating it's 30th anniversary next year, 2015.


Beach chairSituated in the wonderful Mediterranean Sea, Menorca is the eastern island of the Balearic archipelago. It boasts a stunning coastline, with more than 100 beaches, coupled with a verdant, mainly rural, interior. There is something for everyone to enjoy and you, and your team supporters, will be ensured a wonderful holiday with some great cricket thrown in!



Arriving at the breathtakingly beautiful Biniparrell cricket ground is always akin to dying and going to heaven for any cricket lover; the smell of freshly cut grass transported me back to the days in England when weekends and often midweek evenings consisted of wall to wall cricket......bliss!
