Welcome:

We are a fun, dynamic and inclusive club running a national award winning programme for children from U7 to U17. All sessions are run by ECB qualified, DBS checked, and First Aid trained coaches. Young Cricketers below the age of 7 can start through our All Stars Cricket programmes.

We run a year-round programme of activities for children including training, matches, tournaments and holiday camps. We enter teams into local MJCA leagues, and promote transition into our Senior Teams, giving players the skills and confidence to play at this level. We feed into East London Boroughs and the Middlesex County Age Group pathways. 

We are family-friendly, and encourage everyone to stay and enjoy the atmosphere at the club. We host fundraising BBQs throughout the summer, and encourage everyone to come and relax together at weekends while supporting our Senior Teams. Our bar / cafe is open throughout the week.  We are always looking for more volunteers, so if you are interested, please contact us!

Spring Term Training Sessions:

Spring Term Training is currently paused due to COVID-19 - we hope to resume as soon as possible! Please contact us if you would like more information, to express interest, or if you have any queries. 

Summer Term Junior Membership & Taster Sessions:

Junior Membership is now available for the Summer 2021 Season! All of our sessions aim to develop core fundamentals of batting, bowling, fielding and keeping with soft & hard balls, and instil a love of the game.

Please click the links below to purchase membership (places are limited), and contact us if you have any queries. We are happy to offer taster sessions for any prospective new members!

Our U11 mixed sides and all girls sides will form part of a training schedule each week. Details will be shared once membership has been purchased. Match opportunities are provided in the MJCA Leagues and Seaxe Girls League.

Our U12 - U17 players will take part in Group Training on Tuesday evenings (17:30 - 19:00). Match opportunities are provided in the MJCA Leagues and Senior Teams if appropriate.

All Stars Cricket:

This is the ECB’s entry level participation programme, aimed at providing a fantastic first experience of cricket for children aged 3-8. We deliver eight one-hour sessions, with an emphasis on being active, having fun and developing movement skills. 

We encourage parents to take part in our sessions, which are easy to register for online, and reward participants with a bonus pack of cricket kit, including a bat, ball, activity book, personalised shirt and cap, all sent straight to your door.

Our popular Holiday Camps run during school holidays, and are open to all. Please book early to avoid disappointment! These camps are led by our coaches and include a balance of games and drills to improve all aspects of the game. We focus on individual skills in the mornings, and try out skills in the afternoon through game-based practice or in the nets.
