Welcome to Hadleigh and Thundersley Cricket Club
Founded in 1946, we pride ourselves on our competitive standard of cricket, thriving social scene, and outstanding club facilities. If you are looking for a cricket club within the Hadleigh, Thundersley, Benfleet, Castle Point or Southend-on-Sea area in Essex then we could be the club for you!
Our Saturday 1s play in the Hamro Foundation Essex League's Premier Division – the best in Essex. Our club’s youth teams are also very successful in local leagues. We recognise that youth development is very important, from boys and girls aged 5 to 8 joining our All Stars programme, to introducing youth players to open age cricket. Hadleigh & Thundersley CC will always welcome new players of all ages and ability. We are also actively looking to grow participation from women and girls to start a women's cricket team.
While we are primarily a cricket club, we also have a vibrant social scene, taking advantage of our outstanding pavilion and bar facilities. Social members can enjoy evenings across the year with food and drink, live music, quizzes and plenty of opportunities to watch international sporting events in our bar, arranged by our Social Committee. We're a family friendly club and members can introduce guests to use our club facilities.
We support the local community in the Castle Point and Southend-on-Sea areas through hiring our facilities to community groups.
Look around our website and follow us on social media to find out more about our cricket club.
Join Now: All Stars Cricket for 5 to 8 year old girls and boys!
We are pleased to announce that we are running an All Stars cricket programme for 5 to 8 year old girls and boys who want to try cricket. The programme starts on Friday 13th May 18:00-19:00 and will be weekly on Fridays over the summer.
Unlike many clubs, we run All Stars beyond the standard 8 week programme and hope to hold monthly All Stars BBQs to bring together the family (weather permitting!).
Please join using this All Stars sign-up link.
Welcoming New Players!
We're always welcoming players of all ages and abilities to join our club. From our youth cricket starting with softball Under 9s to adult cricket, if you are interested in coming to join a couple of training sessions to find out more about us please get in touch. We are also looking to build a women's cricket team and grow girl's youth cricket at the club so watch this space for more updates.
Celebrating our Cricket Club's 75th Anniversary
We were incredibly fortunate to have great events close 2021 - our 75th Anniversary. Our 75th Anniversary Ball was a huge success with over 200 attendees and our Christmas Fireworks social in December was particularly memorable as excellent celebration of this milestone.
Our Saturday 1s came 4th in the Hamro Foundation Essex League's Premier Divsion - the second time running for competitive seasons - and reached the League Cup semi-finals. All our Saturday teams finished in the top half of their divisions with our Saturday 3s achieving a promotion. We enjoyed youth cricket success too, particularly with our Under 15s finishing first in our region's league.
