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:
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
