Welcome to Battle Cricket Club. We are a friendly local club who recognise the long history of cricket in the town and local area (280 recorded years), but also look to the present and future. For 2018, we are again running two senior sides in the East Sussex Cricket League - our 1st XI will play in Division 5 of the new amalgamated 'Sussex Cricket League' (equivalent of Division 1 or 2 of the old ESCL), whilst the 2nd XI play in Division 12. Our Friendly XI and Development XI play an expanding list of midweek games as well as longer Sunday matches - touring sides are most welcome, and we will tour ourselves to Cambridge this year. In recent years, the club's President's XI's side has contained former county and test cricketers as well as members of the band Keane.
We are determined to ensure that cricket continues in the glorious town of Battle for the next 280 years. This is why we continue to invest money, time and effort into developing and growing our youth section. Junior practices will take place on Sunday mornings from 10am-12 during the summer at George Meadow, and pre-season nets will be in March to keep juniors (4-5pm on Sundays) in good cricketing shape. Social activities throughout the cricket season and off-season are important to the club as well, and the club gets involved in local community events wherever we can - we have both a men's and women's team in the Battle Marbles competition!
If you have just a passing interest in being involved in Battle cricket, whether playing, social or as part of our ground staff, please do contact us (use the 'Contact club' link at the top of the page). We look forward to welcoming all to Battle and George Meadow in 2018.
