history


Overview of HCC


Our website will give you an insight into Harpenden Cricket Club including details of membership, fixtures, cricket and leisurewear, social events, and other news, as well as links to our sponsors and other interesting websites. Please feel free to contact us for further details or alternatively why not visit the Pavilion and meet some of the members. For the latest news please see below.

The bar is open on Saturday and Sunday evenings and all weekday evenings when a match is being played on the Common (which from May through to the end of July is virtually every night). The club has started a programme of pavilion refurbishment; the building has been re-roofed and a new groundsman's store has been built. A new scoreboard has been installed, generously donated by Ernie Tyerman, a past player and ex-President of the Club.

We now run 6 Saturday and 2 Sunday sides playing in the Hertfordshire Cricket League and the Slazenger Chess Valley League respectively.

At Colts level we run league sides at Under 9, Under 10, Under 11,Under 12, Under 13, Under 14 and Under 15 age groups with a number of Colts playing at County, Area or District level. We also run a Minis section for Under 8's (who play the occasional friendly) and a Girl's section, which is open to all ages

In recognition of our work with young cricketers and our work in the community we accredited by ECB and Sport England with 'Clubmark' status and have been designated as a 'Focus' club.

Harpenden Cricket Club was established in 1863 and we have played on Harpenden Common since that date. Over the years many changes have, not surprisingly, taken place including amalgamating with Harpenden Ferndale CC and Harpenden Wednesday CC.
