Googlies Ltd is a newly established company, founded in August 2020 by its three director shareholders - all cricket fanatics - Simon Gauge, Ian Gilbertson and David Whittles.
Together, we have secured the private finance required to build and run a state of the art, purpose built 5 lane indoor cricket centre in Rochdale. In addition to the net facility we will have a retail outlet selling cricket clothing and equipment, a cafe and a viewing area.
With a population of over 200,000 people, Rochdale has more than 50 cricket clubs within a 10 mile radius of the planned cricket centre and at the moment it requires half an hour of travelling time to reach the nearest existing purpose built facility.
Our aim is to offer cricket for all. As well as developing elite players, we want to offer cricket to anyone who has the talent, enabling them to meet their full potential whether that be by representing their country, their county or their local cricket club at a senior or junior level, including both the female and disabled game.
Over the coming months we will be busy building the facility, recruiting a Director of cricket to run the centre, coaches to support our training, finding retail partners, forming relationships with potential clients and partners and keeping everybody informed of our journey towards opening.
Exciting times lie ahead!
