We have invested heavily in our facilities and have a magnificent ground at Alveley Recreation Ground, and raised a potential player base of 60 people who regularly play cricket for the club. The club has always had a strong commitment to youth cricket and the continued growth in our junior section. So whether you’re a potential junior or adult player we can accommodate players of all standards and ages who want to enjoy and gain success from the sport.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
