BidX1 UK announced today that Cannock Cricket & Hockey Club will be going under the virtual hammer, with a guide price in excess of £295,000, at their digital auction on Wednesday 24th July.
The property is being marketed in what is BidX1’s biggest auction to date, with the unique opportunity to purchase a cricket club providing a key point of interest among the 103-lot catalogue.
Cannock Cricket and Hockey Club, offered on behalf of fixed charge receivers, is a freehold sports ground and pavilion arranged across approximately 25 acres. The grounds include two cricket pitches, three floodlit artificial hockey pitches (one water and two sand based), a crown green bowling green, two tennis courts and a large car park. The sizeable pavilion contains a bar with capacity for 270 people, changing rooms, gym, three squash courts, a restaurant and banqueting suite.
The exceptional lot is situated in Cannock, where it has been active for 139 years. The site lies approximately 20 miles north west of Birmingham and 10 miles south east of Stafford. Cannock railway station provides regional rail links as well as a direct service to Birmingham New Street. Cannock Chase, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is situated to the north of the town.
Simon Bailey, Director at BidX1, commented: “It is not everyday that we have the opportunity to list such a diverse and rare site such as the Cannock Cricket and Hockey Club. The grounds, which have been established as a sporting hub for over a century, present a great investment opportunity for the right buyer. There is potential for further development subject to planning and the asset offers a diverse range of amenities on fantastic well-maintained grounds. It is a popular site and presents an opportunity to reinvigorate a key sporting club which is a well-established part of the local community. We’d expect this lot to attract a wealth of interest and look forward to opening the digital bidding on July 24th.”
