Brockenhurst Cricket Club‘s first documented matches were against Southampton and then Portsmouth in 1797.
Maintenance and updates to the cricket club and grounds is paramount in order for the club to run smoothly and develop. The Club has already secured planning permission to extend and refurbish the pavilion, to enable an expanded groundsman's storage area for a much needed updated roller and other equipment. The Committee is keen for the Club to undertake this as soon as possible. Therefore, we are looking for funding to help provide the necessary costs to ensure our club continues to thrive and grow.
We know through experience that cricket can be a powerful and lasting addition of a young person’s learning and development, in turn bringing wider educational and social benefits. We want to encourage more youth players to join the club and therefore need to provide suitable amenities for this.
Last season, our 1st XI won their league in a nail biting finish and the 2nd XI also secured promotion. We also run a Friendly XI which typically plays at home against touring sides with matches played midweek afternoons.
2019 was our third year of running a youth section, we ran All Stars cricket for the 4-8 year olds, an U9s team and for the first time an U11s team. This means that every primary school year group now has the opportunity to play cricket at Balmer Lawn and we saw lots of girls again participating in All Stars and two girls represent our U9s team. In the 2021 season we are committed to also running an U13s section.
