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 Fixtures page.
Exmouth Cricket Club Community/Open Day
On Sunday July 17th the Exmouth Cricket Club will be having a Community/Open Day as part of the ECB Club Open Day Scheme sponsored by Waitrose.
Located at the Maer on the Sea Front, there is a real community feel about Exmouth Cricket Club and this event is to encourage families to be involved in this great National sport.
Cricket will be on show, of course, along with activities such as a Bouncy Castle, face painting, there will be animals from World of Country Life Animal park, a cake/sweet stall and loads more. The ground will be open to all and families are encouraged to drop in and enjoy the day. The popular T Hut will be open for hot and cold food and soft drinks as will the Club Bar in the Cricket Pavilion and a BBQ will be available. Of course no event would be complete without a Grand Raffle with some super prizes.
Entry for non-members is free, however, if you are driving and wish to park, we have to charge £5 per car, however you can leave your car there all day if you wish and maybe explore Exmouth Seafront and its other attractions!
Exmouth is one of the leading Cricket clubs in the country, evidenced during the 1st Team’s journey to the 2015 National T20 finals held at the Swalec Stadium in Cardiff. Finishing as runners-up to Ealing, to be 2nd out of 750 Club Cricket teams in the Country is a commendable performance for a small club.
Building on the success of last year, Exmouth Cricket Club continues to go from strength to strength. With teams in the Premier, C Division and Ladies Cricket League, the club prides itself on its ability to cater for everyone of all ages and abilities. In addition to the first team, last years’ Under 13/14 team also enjoyed an extremely successful year. Captained by Luke Davies, the Team went on to be Leaders of the East Devon U14 League, alongside cup winners of the East Devon U13 Cup. Currently, defending their position well, this could also be a successful year for this youth side.
Generations of families have enjoyed the facilities at Exmouth Cricket Club. Many of its players started in the Colts and are still active in the Senior teams. The current Club Committee have long standing club connections either as players or parents. Our President, Jim Wood, for example, began as a player, then watched his son, Matthew play, and is now supporting his Grandchildren, Jasmyne and Amelie, on our Friday Colts Evenings. His daughter, Jo, plays an active part in the club as part of the committee. Jim’s wife Trina, also plays an important supporting role!
Exmouth’s strength lies in its community feel and this will be in evidence during the Club’s Community/Open Day. As a result of the growth in ‘home grown coaches’ this year, many of whom have been with the Club since they were young, the Club now offers, alongside its existing Colts provision, training to children 5-7 year olds. Mum, Dads and Grandparents all come to watch and buy refreshments from the bar, whilst their family members take their first steps on the road to the Oval.
If you fancy a game or simply enjoy relaxing in the sun whilst enjoying refreshments from the very popular T-Hut, then please visit the club’s website or here for further information. Both will be updated with more information as we get nearer the date
This is the first of what we hope will be a Monthly Newsletter. If you have any News to communicate to our members, please let me know as soon as you have it organised and I will include it in our email news, Facebook Page and Website.
