Why join Earlswood Cricket Club?
If you're interested in cricket then Earlswood CC invite you to join our club. Regardless of previous cricketing experience or age our doors are always open to anyone with an interest in one of England's most popular summer sports.
The Clubmark accreditation was first awarded to Earlswood Cricket Club in 2006 and continues to this day. Clubmark is administered by Sport England and is awarded to clubs that comply with minimum operating standards in four areas:
• The playing programme
• Duty of care and safeguarding and protecting children and young people
• Knowing your club and its community
• Club management
Regular audits take place to ensure that the club continues to comply with the operating standards required. Our policies are all printed and posted in the clubhouse and held on the Clubmark page of our website. Please click here to link to the page.
We currently have five adult teams playing on Saturdays in the Warwickshire League and Cotswold Hills League (CHL).
Our Sunday XI competes in the Arden Sunday League and we also play friendly fixtures against other local sides.
We have a vibrant and healthy Junior section with an inclusive ethos offering a wide range of cricketing opportunities to both boys and girls (Aged 5-19).
Teams represent the Club in the Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Cotswold Hills Leagues as well as local festivals. We enter mixed sides at every year group from U9 to U19 and have girls teams at U11, U13, U15 and U17.
The Club provides a pathway for juniors (boys and girls) to play adult cricket from under 13. The majority of players in our senior teams have come through the ranks of the junior section at some stage.
The home of Earlswood Cricket Club is at our Watery Lane ground based on the edge of Earlswood close to Cheswick Green. In order to support the increasing demand for the cricket on offer at the club we also rent pitches at Tanworth & Camp Hill CC's 2nd ground on Rumbush Lane near Dickens Heath and at Henley-in-Arden's ground.

We pride ourselves on being a sociable and community minded club. We have a licensed bar at Watery Lane which is open to members and guests whenever matches or coaching is on and in particular players and parents are welcome to wind-down for the weekend on a Friday evening.
