Eversley Cricket Club
Welcome to Eversley Cricket Club
Cricket has been played at our Cross Green ground since 1787 and is one of the oldest grounds in the South of England.
We recently expanded our facilities, behind Cross Green, to incorporate a second cricket ground and a state of the art cricket indoor training centre (ITC). A number of well know cricketers, including Monty Panesar and the Australian International Ladies team have used these facilities together with the Ian Botham Cricket School. These facilities, including our club house, are available for hire.
We run four adult Thames Valley League sides on a Saturday, with our First X1 playing in Division 2, one Sunday side and compete in a number of local competitions, as well as the National Village Knockout Cup. This year we entertain Hampshire CCC in a T20 challenge, for Sean Ervine's benefit season, which is a great fund raising event. There are numerous sponsorships/advertising opportunities on this day. If you are interested, please contact our Sponsorship Officer, Alan Budge.
The Club is always looking for new adult players and if anyone is interested they should contact Scott Sharp, Chairman of Cricket, for more information or join us on practice night, Wednesday's on the main ground from 6pm.
We have a very successful Colts section with over 200 boys and girls playing from ages U9 to U17. We are proud to have a number of Colts who have progressed through to the First X1. Furthermore, a number of our Colts have represented District and County.
The girls colt teams lead naturally on to our Ladies team who play League cricket on a Sunday. For the girls and Ladies team, please contact Mike Tresise.
For colts, both boys and girls can contact Martin Perkin. We have great demand for new Colts, particularly in the younger age groups, so it is important to make contact with Martin Perkin no later than end of November for the following season.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
