Welcome to Exmouth Cricket Club
Exmouth Cricket Club was founded in 1843 and occupies one of the most idyllic settings in Devon on the edge of the world famous Jurassic Coast looking out over Lyme Bay.
The Ist XI playing in the Devon Premier League, in 2015 we reached the ECB National Club T20 finals, in 2013 Devon League title holders and completed the double by also winning the Devon Senior Cup.
The Club hosts Devon County Cricket Club's Minor Counties and Devon Cricket Board games as well as to teams from the First Class County Game.
The Ground can accommodate 18 wickets as well as allowing for a 65 metre boundary while still having the capacity for spectators to drive onto the ground to watch the cricket.
Exmouth Cricket Club has achieved ClubMark status in recognition of its child friendly approach to cricket and now has thriving Colts and Ladies sections as well as five other adult teams.
The Bar in the club pavilion and neighbouring T- Hut Café are open to club members and the public serving food and drink with the Bar also hosting events throughout the year.
The Bar has a 50" TV, so is a great place to chill either after a match or at the weekend when the bar is open. Special Sporting events will also see the Pavilion opened to provide a convivial and comfortable bar to enjoy watching the matches on the new TV!
The New 2016 Fixtures List is now downloadable via the Fixture

Trina and Lynda's Coffee Mornings
Every Friday Morning from 10.30 until 12ish. Coffee, Tea, cakes and biscuits. Free of charge to members although a donation would be most welcome.
Jim Wood has suggested that any proceeds are put towards replacing the Reeded plastic pavilion windows with clear plastic, so that in fine weather the verandah will be a delightful place to sit and bask in the sun and enjoy the view!
Peggy Browning, one of our Honorary Members, sadly passed away before Christmas. We have been advised that the Funeral on Monday 9th January is strictly Private for family members only. Our thoughts must be with them.
Club End of Season
Dear Members and Supporters
We have got used over the years to having a CricketForce day before the commencement of the season to get the ground ready for the matches during the Summer. However, we always have a load of jobs necessary to `put the ground to bed’ at the end of the Season as well.
This year we have decided to have a CricketForce weekend on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th September and would appreciate as much support as possible. We look forward to some decent weather and seeing as many players and members as possible to make the job as easy as possible.
Exmouth Cricket Club Community/Open Day
This was a highly successful venture and one that we intend to undertake Annually. There was a very good turnout, not only of Colts, potential Colts and parents but even some senior players wishing to return to the game!
The BBQ was a great success and sold out, I think we all enjoyed the music and fun and generally there was a great buzz about the ground!
A lot of hard work made this happen and I am sure that we want to thank all those concerned who worked tirelessly to create a very successful afternoon!
Call for Help!
The club has a large ground and outbuildings and we are always appreciative of any help that members and supporters can spare us.
If you do have some spare time and feel able to help out, please contact Sue Hurley, either via this page or by email via the button below.
Congratulations are due to 3 of our younger players, Louis Morison, Ollie Puglsey and James Horler, who have been selected to represent Devon U15's in South Africa, in February 2017. They are all obviously very excited about the trip and have been tasked with raising their own funds to the tune of £2950 each!
Obviously they have a mammoth task ahead of them to raise the money to pay for the the trip, so the club are appealing on behalf of them all.
Any amount of sponsorship would be gratefully received and I am sure the boys will be getting together for a photo to gain some publicity for Exmouth CC.
For obvious reasons I cannot put their email addresses up on this site, so should anyone be interested in supporting any or all of these players either with a monetary gift or sponsorship, please contact me on my usual email address, or via the Contact me link below I can then forward you more details regarding the Sponsorship system being operated by Devon Cricket Club
Thanks for your time and I hope you can help.
