Welcome to Battle Cricket Club. In 2013,
we celebrated 275 years of recorded cricket from the town with a plethora of
fixtures and social events which included a Cricket Week and two very special
games – a ‘period’ game in 18th century dress against our 1738 opponents (Eastbourne) as well as a match against our President's XI - a side containing 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 275 years. This
is why we are investing money, time and effort into such initiatives as the new
artificial pitch which is especially aimed at developing and growing our youth
section, working closely with both the primary and secondary schools to offer
progression into the senior cricket, participating in wider community events
and tapping into any available funding streams. Junior practices take place at George Meadow on Wednesdays from 4-6pm.
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 2014!
