Grayshott Cricket Club has seen youth cricket played at Grayshott for over fifty years now, and continues to be a very popular club offering good quality coaching for young children together with a pathway through all ages of junior cricket and then ultimately into adult cricket. All our adult sides include a strong nucleus of current and former youth players, a credit to our coaching teams. In 2017 the club has launched an All Stars Cricket Centre which has proved so popular that we are now full.
The club has over 200 junior members offering cricket to children in Grayshott and the surrounding areas including Beacon Hill, Bordon, Haslemere, Headley, Lindford, Liphook and Whitehill. The club has two excellent grounds at Grayshott and now at Broxhead Common, Lindford.
Running any youth organisation nowadays has to incorporate so many additional requirements. Cricket is no different and in 2005 Grayshott adopted the ECB’s “Safe Hands Policy” and achieved Clubmark accreditation demonstrating that the club takes matters like Child Protection seriously. 2014 saw the club acquire a fourth consecutive term of accreditation, an achievement of which we are obviously quite proud.
In 2006, Grayshott was awarded ECB Focus Club status, just one of 37 Clubs in Hampshire to achieve such status which recognises clubs that promote the development of youth cricket. Grayshott continue to retain this Focus Club status.
My association with the club has been over 30 years and my love of the club has always been that it is a family orientated one but continuing to be a strong and friendly village cricket club.
