Harpenden Cricket Club
Objectives of the Organisation
Harpenden Cricket Club was established in 1863 and as a registered Charity (1160656) its objective is to provide community participation in healthy recreation by providing facilities for playing cricket and advance the education of children and young people whether or not undergoing formal education.
Besides being one of the oldest clubs in Hertfordshire it is now one of the largest. Approximately 100 senior and nearly 400 junior members enable the club to run 6 Saturday league sides, 2 Sunday sides, a mid-week XI and nearly 40 junior sides in every junior age group.
The club maintains 3 grounds with its main ground, Harpenden Common, hosting the 1st and 2nd XI’s and since levelling in 1997 it has developed into one of the best squares and outfields in Hertfordshire and is often used for Minor Counties matches.
The club is the centre of most cricket in Harpenden and the surrounding community and it has strong links with the 3 secondary schools in the town and 6 of the primary schools, has historic associations with the other league cricket club in the town Harpenden Dolphins and the two parents/veterans sides Manland and Crabtree.
We have several areas within the club where help from volunteers would be much appreciated. This could include activities from helping out on a match day to providing support for the team that run the pavilion. Those with administration skills could help our programme that ensures children have a safe environment to participate in cricket.
One thing is for sure, we will make sure you feel welcome and appreciated in this family friendly club.
