Chislehurst & West Kent Cricket Club
Hello and welcome to the Chislehurst and West Kent Cricket Club play-cricket website.
Cricket has been played at our Chislehurst Common ground for the last 193 years consecutively (except during the Second World War), with illustrious players such as W.G. Grace often taking part in fixtures here during the late 19th century.
During the summer months, we run three Saturday teams, playing league cricket, plus a Sunday side and a midweek team that play friendly matches against local opposition. We also have a thriving Junior section playing competitive matches in the under 11’s to under 16’s age groups.
See our About Us/Joining Message page for some more background on our club.
NEW SENIOR AND JUNIOR PLAYERS WELCOME!
If you or one of your family are interested in playing cricket for Chislehurst & West Kent CC then please email our Director of cricket Paul McEntire and we'll be happy to invite you along to a game or to a practice net.
We welcome all players - boys, girls, youths, women and men - ages 5 to 95, and of all standards!
Chislehurst & West Kent Cricket Club are very proud to be Club Mark Accredited and to be a member of the Cricket4Bromley Hub.
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
