During the winter there is a WCC indoor team. Indoor cricket is a fast paced, 6-a-side, 12 over per innings game played in the club's coloured kit. Whilst taking the competition seriously it also serves as a great way to keep up your skills, stay in touch with your mates and to stay involved in the game over a long winter.

The indoor team's season has come to an end with defeat to AZ Sports in the ECB Surrey semi-final.
Fielding first AZ Sports got 137, a just above par total. In reply Wimbledon were ahead of the rate most of the way, but kept losing wickets and eventually were bowled out for 92. Brilliant fielding accounting for most of the dismissals. Alex Hunt was the stand out bowler and James Johnston the standout batter on the night.
Although disappointing not to win the Surrey title and progress into the national rounds it has been an enjoyable and successful season winning our league. Well done to all who played. The best performers were:
Most Runs - Max Fernie (146)
Most Wickets - Carlton Anand (7)
Most Fielding Dismissals - Tom Cooper (6)
WCC v Worcester Park CC 26.11.15
A very good win last night. WCC lost the toss and were inserted. Fernie and Costin both got 25's and retired. We finished on 125. Johnson and Hunt bowled brilliantly opening up. After 4 overs Worcester Park had 9 runs! Anand and De Silva bowled well. The fielding was good and we bowled them out for 40 with two overs to go. That should be a top 4 play off place secured.
Next game is against the Tamils on the 10th of December to see who finishes top of the league......
Well done to all involved, and have a good weekend.

Review of the 2014/15 season:
Captained by Mark Costin Wimbledon entered the ECB Surrey Indoor League for the first time in the 2014/15 season. We managed to get strong teams out and qualified through our (Outer London) regional division to progress into the Surrey quarter final where we beat Dorking CC by 36 runs. In the semi final we beat Merrow CC by 15 runs to leave us with a final against Guildford City CC with both teams vying to be ECB Surrey champions. Our slightly above par score of 128 was chased down in the last over to see Guildford crowned and progress to the national rounds. To see the match report from the final click here:
John Harris finished top of the runs chart with 248 @ 31 and a strike rate of 190.77. James Johnson and Mark Costin finished joint top of the wickets with 8 each. John Harris finished as the MVP. Although statistically those were the standout performers, there were strong contributions from all involved at some points. For detailed break downs see below:
