Who are we?
Hello and welcome to Streatham & Marlborough Cricket Club in south London – one of the largest, fastest growing and most diverse amateur cricket clubs in the UK.
We have nearly 500 playing members across our ever-increasing number of men’s, women’s, boys’ and girls’ teams. If we include parents, partners and other social members, we are a sporting and social hub for over 1000 members of the local community.
We’ve been welcoming new members for over 200 years and we hope you’ll be the latest addition to our thriving cricket family.
What are we call about?
We pride ourselves on being one of the friendliest and most inclusive cricket clubs around. Whoever our members are and whatever their circumstances, they can always enjoy the great game with us.
Across our membership, 35% identify as an ethnicity other than white-British, 22% are female and 2-3% have a disability. Our female membership is so quickly that, in 2022, our number of women and girl’s squads is doubling from 3 to 6.
What’s more, our fees are structured so that income is never a barrier to play. We are truly a club for all.
Just how much cricket is there?
In 2022, we expect to play over 450 matches and to provide at least 50,000 hours of cricket.
Our men’s section, which is the largest in south London and probably in the country, runs 8 Saturday teams, 2 Sunday friendly teams, a mid-week T20 and friendly side and a winter indoor team.
Our women’s section has 2 league teams, a mid-week T20 team and soft-ball festival cricket for newer and more social member.
Our junior section provides year-round cricket for over 200 boys and almost 100 girls from age 5 to 17.
With junior and senior teams playing in both Surrey and Kent leagues, we play against teams across the whole of south London and beyond.
Our home ground also hosts numerous private hire matches every year.
How are we doing?
Our women are tearing it up. In 2019 they were undefeated and won promotion to Division 1, as well as winning the inaugural Surrey Slam T20 tournament. In 2021, they finished 2nd in Surrey’s top division.
Our men’s 4th and 5th XIs were recently both promoted, reflecting our strength across the board.
In 2021, three of our junior teams won their divisions, and three new junior players were selected into county performance programmes.
What facilities have we got?
The entrance to our home ground is located on bustling South Circular, between Dulwich and Forest Hill.
Our home ground has two beautifully kept pitches, artificial turf practice nets and a pitch-side pavilion with a well-stocked and inexpensive bar (open during matches and some training sessions).
We also play matches in numerous other local venues such as Mayow Park (Sydenham), Hill Fields Park (Brockley/Lewisham), South Norwood Lake Park (Norwood/Crystal Palace), Burgess Park (Camberwell) and in 2022, also Peckham Rye Park (Peckham).
Why do we need your help?
Unfortunately, running a club our size isn’t cheap, particularly in London.
Our primary aim is to raise money to build a new pavilion because our current one is falling down. Without a new one, our club as we know it will cease to exist.
Our net facilities are also in need of renovation and our ground equipment requires regular servicing.
Importantly, we don’t pay any of our players. We aim for all our members to benefit equally from our facilities.
How can you benefit?
We’ll get into the nitty gritty when we meet in person, but we hope you can see that we’re a big and vibrant club with much to offer.
Our popular social media and email updates provide an opportunity for you to connect with our membership and promote your business.
What’s more, you’ll feel a part of our close-knit community. We’ll always have a cold drink with your name on it waiting behind the bar.
This is just a brief introduction to Streatham & Marlborough Cricket Club. We’d love to talk more and discuss how we can help each other. Please see the link at the top of the page.
