Hartlepool Cricket Club provides competitive cricket for both adult and junior cricket at one of the most picturesque cricket venues in the UK.
HCC has a thriving social club which is open all year round and has a long and distinguished history since its formation in 1855. The ground, Park Drive, has hosted First Class Cricket and remains a popular venue for representative matches in the North East. As well as excellent ground facilities for matches there is a three-lane artificial net facility for practice and coaching.
Hartlepool Cricket Club was the first club in Durham to be awarded Clubmark status in 2003. The junior club is very popular and provides coaching by ECB qualified coaches. Competitive cricket is available at Under 11, 12, 13, 15 and 17 age groups. An Under 9 group is engaged in kwik cricket and coaching activities as an introduction to hard ball cricket later.
HCC has three senior teams competing in the DBS NYSD Premier Cricket Leagues. NYSD is one of the most competitive local leagues in England and have been a dominant force in the League Cricket Conference President's Trophy for many years.
The club has engaged two professionals for the 2014 season, Marc Symington and Jonathan Rickard who will spearhead the team in the Premier Division.
Each team has a full programme of league cup competitions for midweek fixtures
Hartlepool Cricket Club welcomes new members with experienced cricketers required to register and transfer from their previous clubs in accordance with NYSD League rules. Hartlepool Cricket Club promotes the Spirit of Cricket and encourages all players to play competitively but fairly.
