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
The Club are pleased to advise that Jennie Ames has agreed to undertake the duties of Fixtures Secretary, which the Committee were pleased to accept.
Jennie can be contacted via the link here or by telephone 07798 867801
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!
These will cease on 31st March as the THut will be open after Easter.
Colts Training Sessions 2017
The Colts Training Sessions commence after Easter on Friday 21st April. Registration will be before the training session. Minimum age is 7. The cost per session is £1 per week for Colts who are club members and £2 per week for Colts who are not members. However any Colts selected to play for a club team MUST be a Club member to meet our Insurers requirements! Forms for Club membership are available on this website. (http://www.exmouthcricketclub.co.uk/forms.html). Please remember the advantages of Family membership or of a Parent also being a member that you get a Car Pass to park in the Cricket Ground which is usable all year free of charge whenever the ground is open (pretty much 9am until 8pm most of the year!).
Registration will start at 6pm and the session will start at 6.15pm. The BBQ will be available and the Bar will be open so we look forward to seeing our new and existing Colts with their parents.
2017-18 Season Membership and
Dear Members and Supporters
As our new season approaches, we are already being asked about when the Membership form pack will be sent out. We intend emailing those members on email around 15th February and posting or delivering the remainder during that same week. The forms are of course on the website if you can't wait http://www.exmouthcricketclub.co.uk/membership.html.
Please make sure that you only send Amanda cheques, sorry but cash is not preferred to assist in maintaining accurate membership records.
The Membership pack, containing the 2017 Club handbook and Fixture list, with car pass and membership card will be posted out hopefully before 1st April.
Don't forget please, that NatWest Cricket Force is on April 1st and 2nd!! We will desperately need help to get our Club ready for the season. Also we need to erect our new Marquee!
It is with sadness that we have to advise that after falling numbers participating over the last few years, that the 100 Club will close after the Final Grand Draw in April 2017.
We are very grateful for the support given over the duration of the 100 Club and rest assured that the money raised has been put to good use.
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.
Membership Packs etc.
You should all by now have received your membership pack either by email, or by post if we don't have an email address for you.
If for any reason you haven't received it please contact our Membership Secretary Amanda Schaufler email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember the `early bird' discount for membership forms returned with your cheque, before 30th April. No cash can be received please!
As soon as we receive the Membership /Fixture booklets from the Printers they will be put in the post for you. Should the booklets be a bit late, of course you can still use your old car pass and membership card.
Cheques received will NOT be banked until we are ready to send out the Booklets, membership cards and car passes.
Advance information on the Fixtures will be posted on our website as soon as I have them.
