Gerrards Cross Cricket Club is part of Gerrards Cross Sports Club which consists of Cricket, Hockey and Tennis. The club was formed in 1882 and moved to its present site in 1912 when the cricket club was offered land behind the Parish church. A Tennis Section was formed soon afterwards and in the early 1950s many of the cricketers, who were keen hockey players, created a winter section which kept the club active throughout the year.
The 1st XI won the Thames Valley League Divison 1 title in 2002 and was promoted to the Home Counties Premier League for the 2003 season, finishing in third place. The 1st XI finished as runners-up in 2006 and 2007 and the 2nd XI secured promotion from Thames Valley League Division 3a in 2012 and will play in Division 2b in 2013.
There are three adult sides on a Saturday and one on a Sunday. In 2013, the club's 3rd XI will be re-formed and will join the Thames Valley League in Division 9 which will provide the younger members with experience of league cricket. There is also a large colts section of over 250, playing at all age groups from 5 to 17. The club is proud of the number of colts that have been selected for Buckinghamshire in recent years and former England Test Captain, Andrew Strauss, played for the club during the 1990s.
In 1985 a magnificent club house was built to replace the ageing tennis and cricket pavilions and this has enabled the club to expand. This is a thriving and extremely social club where all sections support and enjoy each others company. If you are moving to the area or did not know of our existence then come and pay us a visit.
