The Boundary Club - business networking with first-class cricket

15-Jan-2014

Business networking with first-class cricket

The Boundary Club is Sussex County Cricket Club’s unique business networking group, providing an incomparable cocktail of business, food and cricket since 2010.

Our first event in May 2010 welcomed 25 businesses to Hove with the backdrop of first-class cricket, great guest speakers and a three-course lunch. Since then, it has grown from strength to strength. We now boast over 130 members and have welcomed speakers such as Wayne Hemingway, Alistair Hignall, and Chris Adams to The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground.

Membership includes an invitation for you to attend a minimum of eight networking events across the year, the majority of which coincide with a first-class cricket match here at Hove. It also includes a pair of transferable Executive Memberships, season tickets to the Club, so you can come to all of our home games throughout the season, including the high-octane rush of the hugely popular Natwest T20 Blast.

The Executive Memberships not only allow you to enjoy our fixtures during the 2014 season, but as they are transferable, they can be used as prizes, incentives or can be given to family and friends. As Executive Members, you can also enjoy the private bar and terrace in our Mayo Wynne Baxter Executive Suite, located on the south east corner of the ground - the prime location to enjoy Sussex in action.

Our Boundary Club events are always popular and they usually take place in our Montefiore Hospital Boundary Rooms, which can cater to up to 250 people. You can arrive from 11am to enjoy the morning session of cricket and informal networking before tucking in to a delicious three-course lunch, served from 1pm. Once lunch is finished, it’s over to our guest speakers to talk about their chosen subject, after which you’re welcome to stay and enjoy the rest of the day’s play and further your client database.

Tony Cottey, ex-Sussex CCC professional cricketer and our Business Relationship Manager, is the MC for all of our Boundary Club events. You’ll love Tony’s combination of humour and storytelling, which, along with his years of experience, make him the perfect host.

Gary Pleece about to lose at 'Heads&Tails'

Where cricket meets - a good time!

26-Nov-2013

I recently went to the Where Cricket Meets Beaujolais nouveau lunch at Sussex County Cricket Club and had a thoroughly enjoyable time, complimented as it was by fine wine and food, high level networking and risqué comedy!

The Where Cricket Meets...concept is the brainchild of ex Sussex legend and current Business Relationship Manager, Tony Cottey. Guests in the past have included Sir Viv Richards, Paul Merson, Howard Webb and, now the rather bizarre choice of Beaujolais nouveau! That's the great thing about the concept, cricket can meet...virtually anything and bring a whole new idea, or in this case, an 80s wine favourite, to the table.

The event was held in the magnificent Montefiore Boundary Rooms and featured the rather fruity French Comedian, Marcel Lucont, to compliment the rather fruity wine! Shoe and sockless, his Twitter profile suggests he likes to 'charm women and mock the stupid' - as well as the English it seems! A very funny, well received 30 minutes after walking barefoot on stage he pranced off to a sustained ovation.

The food supplied by Sussex's in-house catering arm, 1839, also had a French flavour. Sea bream starter was followed by coq-au-vin and apple galette with nougat glace and it was simply sumptuous. The wine also complimented the food beautifully. All in all, the perfect way to spend a wet and windy Thursday afternoon in Sussex with a pitchside view of the ground to boot. What else could you ask for?
