Sherwood Cricket Club is a long established club, cricket has been played at Cloudesley Close for many years prior to Sherwood Cricket Club being founded. The Club has its own pavilion with changing rooms, showers and a bar on the grounds. Sherwood Cricket Club owns the grounds and clubhouse on which we play.
The Club currently runs adult 1st and 2nd teams in the Kent Regional League, together with three Sunday XI’s playing both competitive league matches and friendly matches.
The Club was formed in 1965 and as of the 2014 season was providing coaching and matches for over 95 youngsters with an age range of 5-17. The coaching is carried out by England and Wales Cricket Board Qualified Coaches assisted by volunteers from the parents and players from the club.
Everybody involved in the coaching has been enhanced CRB checked for working with children. The club has its own Child Welfare Officer details of whom are available on our contacts page and who sits on the main Club Committee.
The Club Committee has an active policy of bringing youth players who have reached a safe level of competence in to the adult teams, and we are proud of the fact that the current Saturday and Sunday 1st XI has at times many current and former youth players representing the Club.
Our Sunday 3rd team is a transition team for youths about to enter senior cricket we play a number of friendly games against other clubs in the area. We believe that this shows a commitment from the club to encourage the transition from youth to senior cricket in a struc-tured and well planned way.
