The club's sides play under the name, NVT Poloc and NVT Shawholm, NVT being the club's main sponsor - more about it and the club's other funders and supporters can be found in the Sponsors and partners section.  NVT Poloc plays in the Cricket Scotland league administered by the Western District Cricket Union ("WDCU") and NVT Shawholm plays in that league's reserve division.  In addition, Poloc Panthers and an Academy XI both play in both the WDCU Sunday and Evening Leagues, and no fewer than five junior sides play at five age-group levels in the West District Junior Cricket Union leagues and cups, as well as in national cup competitions.  And after you've had a look around here at Poloc online, why not leave us a message in the Guestbook.

Indoor coaching and practice [posted 29/10/14]


The second indoor winter coaching and practice session takes place this Sunday, and is for juniors aged Under 15 and 18, and Academy players.  The session is between 1pm and 3pm.  Anyone with any questions should get in touch with Keith Young (07802-951913).


First indoor sessions [posted 26/10/14]

This afternoon saw the club's winter programme get started with two, one-hour junior coaching sessions.  The first hour saw twelve Under 11s attend, the youngsters enjoying a varied session in which they got to practice catching, fielding and bowling, as well as play an indoor game.  The second hour, from 2pm, saw fourteen Under 13s and 15s come along, and they, too, were put their paces, including a good net session.  Thanks to all the young players who came along on a shocker of a day weatherwise, and thanks, too, to the coaches and assistants who ran the sessions: David, Grant, Abi, Anjum and Keith.  Next week's indoor sessions see the club's older juniors start their winter programme.



New golf season [posted 13/10/14]

The winter golf section's activities are set to start again for another season, and as season 2014-15 looms, Charlie McBride writes, "Golf is about to return to the policies, with the first occasion to be the new Players Tournament on Saturday 25 October, teeing off at 12:45pm.   The club's golf section is no longer organised along the lines of formal office bearers, instead a collective approach is underway to organise, administer and enjoy winter golf. Plans are in place to prepare the course for the Players Tournament which will be an individual stroke play tournament, and comprise the first leg of the Somerville Shield.  All are welcome including those have played before, new golfers, and friends that anyone might care to invite. 

"A tentative schedule of further 'match days' has been pencilled in.   Ground preparation and administrative support re. handicaps, scorecards, record-keeping, etc. will be provided, however the success of the schedule will depend on a named individual taking responsibility for each particular match day.  The format will be decided by that individual, e.g. match versus another club, stableford tournament, scramble, invitational event, internal team match, etc.   A short meeting will be held in the clubhouse immediately after the event on 25 October at which individuals will be asked to step forward and accept responsibility for a given match day, then the schedule will be finalised and published on the club website.   Please support the tournament on 25 October and consider whether you will be willing to accept  responsibility for one of the future match days."
