Petersfield


Petersfield Cricket Club has been providing the opportunity to play cricket in the town of Petersfield since 1751.

2017 is an especially exciting year for us off the pitch as we are renovating and extending the pavilion at the Heath, thanks to an Inspired Facilities grant, and other fundraising carried out by the club last year.

Petersfield Cricket Club’s Heath Ground benefits from the beautiful setting of the historic Heath with its ancient barrows and tranquil pond. Cricket has been played here since 1751, and we believe the current pavilion is at least the third to stand on this spot. Surrounded on all sides by mature indigenous trees the Heath provides a quiet, sheltered ground. The pavilion nestles in the south-west corner and is undergoing a refurbishment. Sat Nav location for matches is GU31 4EJ.
We run 4 adult teams in the Hampshire Leagues including a Ladies team, a mid-week league team and a friendly Sunday team which bridges the gap from our younger juniors to senior cricket. We run 2 colts indoor teams and a men’s and ladies indoor teams. We also have a thriving colts section (see below). 2017 has started well on the “pitch” for Petersfield, with our Senior Indoor side winning their SEHICL Indoor league division, following on from the success of our U16 Indoor side last year. We hope that our other Colts, Girls, Senior and Ladies sides can take some inspiration from that and continue their upward trajectories.

We hope that everybody involved with the club: players, coaches and volunteers have a hugely enjoyable year of cricket. We welcome new players of all ages, genders and abilities and we are a friendly and welcoming club.

Petersfield Cricket Club Colts Section

Petersfield Cricket Club runs an extensive colts programme for our colts (boys and girls). We run coaching sessions for Under 7s through to Under 17s and run indoor coaching throughout the Spring Term and summer coaching and training through the summer term. We run colts teams at Under 9 (U9); U11; U13; U15; U17 and U19 and we run a girls U16 team in the Winchester Warriors League.

Each age group is run by a different Level 2 (or higher) coach and some age groups have more than one level 2 coach. Our coaches are club members and either play cricket for the club or are parents of our colts. We are also supported by a number of coach support workers and senior colts. Our first team captain is assisting a Level 2 coach with our Under 17 coaching / training. We provide players for both district and county teams but mostly we want to encourage all players to develop a love of cricket. We have signed up to the ECB All Stars Cricket Initiative for youngsters aged 5-8 (see link for details)- https://ecb.clubspark.uk/AllStars/Course/ebf92c58-a810-49ad-bac5-046af9381078
