The arrangements for the distribution of cricket balls, team sheets and annual handbooks, this season, will be as follows: - 

Clubs in the Premier Division and Division One 

To be collected any time between 3pm and 8pm on Tuesday 4th April, 2017 from 9 Cricket Close, Walsall WS5 3PU. 

Clubs in Division Two and Division Three 

To be collected any time between 3pm and 8pm on Wednesday 5th April, 2017 from 9 Cricket Close, Walsall WS5 3PU. 

In previous years, groups of clubs have agreed to work together on this, e.g. the Shropshire clubs have deputed Peter Mitchell to collect them on their behalf and he distributes them, the next day, from a central point. Other clubs may do something similar if they have complied with the conditions below.

Cheques must be presented in exchange for the balls on the day unless clubs have paid BCB Ltd via BACS beforehand. Those clubs that have paid BCB Ltd via BACS must confirm that they have paid by this method via email to the General Manager before they are collected. Clubs will receive a VAT invoice from BCB Ltd with the balls.
