BATTLE CRICKET CLUB
Welcome to Battle Cricket Club. We are a friendly local club who recognise the long history of cricket in the town and local area (over 275 recorded years), but also look to the present and future. For 2015, we will again run two senior sides in the East Sussex Cricket League - our 1st XI gained promotion back into Division 1 at the end of the 2014 season, whilst the 2nd XI play in Division 7 (of 12 divisions). Our Friendly XI plays an expanding list of midweek games (usually T20) as well as longer Sunday matches - touring sides are most welcome! 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 275 years. This is why we continue to invest money, time and effort into developing and growing our youth section. Junior practices take place on a weekday afternoon from 4-6pm during the summer at George Meadow, and some winter nets are also run to keep both juniors and seniors 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 are the proud current champions of the annual 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 2015!
