The 2019 cricket season has recently come to a close.
The 2019 season saw Sussex Cricket continue to excel within T20 cricket, after narrowly missing out in the final against Worcestershire in 2018 the Sharks topped the South group in 2019 before being defeated once again by Worcestershire in a home quarter-final. The Club continue to promote youth and Sussex academy graduates within 50 over and County Championship cricket and the team is certainly progressing within the traditional form of the game. With the recent announcement of Jason Gillespie extending his stay as Head Coach and the recruitment of Australian batsmen Travis Head, the 2020 season already looks promising.
It is exciting times for cricket after a high-profile International summer of action including a World Cup win and an enthralling Ashes series. The excitement continued at Sussex as ticket sales once again increased year on year, resulting in seven out of our eight T20’s selling out, Jofra Archer making waves within the England set up and our ground development plans being submitted to the planning committee for their consideration.
Our 2020 fixture list will be released next month, meanwhile we have finalised our Corporate Opportunities for next season. I therefore wanted to touch base to see if Burgess Hill Business Park are interested in engaging with the Club for the 2020 season. We have opportunities stretching across sponsorship, advertising, networking and match day hospitality, all details can be found in the link below:
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
