Brightlingsea Cricket Club

Situated on the North Essex Coast, Brightlingsea Cricket Club has been supporting the community for over a hundred years. We are a family-friendly, community based club dedicated to the game of cricket.

We have two senior teams, a Saturday XI playing in the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties League and a Sunday XI playing in the North Essex Cricket League's T30 series. 

Our facilities are shared with a local Pub Team, The Railway Tavern.

Community Based

We support a thriving Junior players programme, with Colts Cricket and a busy Kwik cricket training session, supporting the youngest members of the club.

Our recent ‘COVID Bounce Back 2021’ crowdfunding appeal to improve our facilities, saw the Club supported by a wide range of local businesses and individuals, allowing us to receive £4000 of additional funding from Sport England and the National Lottery. We were also fortunate enough to receive a very generous donation of £1000 from the Brightlingsea & District Rotary Club.

Cricket for all

While we play every game to win, our first aim is to enjoy our cricket. We welcome players of all shapes, sizes and talents, whether they want to play one game a season or twenty games. 

 

Our commitment to all members of our local community has recently been recognised by the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) approving us to become a Disability Cricket Champion Club. In the coming months, we will be developing our provision for disabled people of all ages in our area.

 

On a match day, and during kwik cricket training, the club house bar is always open, so why not come down and have a drink and support your local cricket club.
