Worcestershire County Cricket Club
The College has an association with the County Cricket Club going back many years. George Chesterton MBE, a distinguished Malvernian, played first class cricket for the county in the 1950s before later going on to become President of the Club. More recently the Club and the College have entered into a strategic partnership which permits the county to have use of the facilities at the Sports Complex at Malvern for their winter training. In partnership with the cricket club, the College now offers a generous cricket scholarship enabling talented youngsters to benefit both from a first-class education at the College and from the expert coaching and mentoring provided by the cricket club.
As part of its aim to increase the quality and scope of its provision of Rugby, the College has developed strong links with the Worcester Warriors through the appointment of Nick Tisdale, a former Warriors player who is now Master i/c Rugby at Malvern. Nick’s presence at the College has led to strengthened links between the College and the county. Pathways for talented players are now established and several of our best players have won places in the Elite Players Development Group. The Warriors squad trains here, at Malvern College, several times each season, and on the last occasion the players gave expert training to children attending the summer residential rugby camp, one of Worcester Warriors flagship community events run annually at the Malvern College.
