Where junior [hard ball] cricket teams are concerned, the club are set to field teams at all of Under 11, Under 13 and Under 15 age group levels in the Rugby and District Cricket League (RDCL) from May to August; the Under 13s will play their RDCL fixtures on a Tuesday evening and the Under 11s and Under 15s on a Thursday evening.
