Overview of HCC
Our website will give you an insight into Harpenden
Cricket Club including details of membership, fixtures, cricket, social events, and other news, as well as links to our
sponsors and other interesting websites. Please feel free to contact us
for further details or alternatively why not visit the Pavilion and meet
some of the members. For the latest news please see below.
The bar is open on Friday and Saturday evenings and most other times
when a match is being played on the Common (which from May through to
the end of July is virtually every night). A major pavilion redevelopment was completed by the start of the 2019 season and the club would like to acknowledge the generous financial support of Harpenden Trust, Harpenden Building Society and Sport England.
The scoreboard, generously donated by Ernie Tyerman, a past player and
ex-President of the Club, was retained as part of the building project.
HCC now runs 6 Saturday sides playing in the Hertfordshire
Cricket League whilst at Colts level we run league sides at Under 9, Under 10, Under 11,Under
12, Under 13, Under 14 and Under 15 age groups with a number of Colts
playing at County, Area or District level. We also run an All Stars section
for Under 8's
The Club also has a rapidly expanding, and highly successful, Girls section which runs teams in age groups from Under 9 to Under 13. A new Girls Under 8 Minis section will start in 2020.
In recognition of the Club's work with young cricketers and in the community we
are accredited by ECB and Sport England with 'Clubmark' status and have been
designated as a 'Focus' club.
Club was established in 1863 and has played on Harpenden Common
since that date. Over the years many changes have taken place including amalgamating with Harpenden Ferndale CC and
Harpenden Wednesday CC.
