Hitchin Cricket Club is one of the oldest cricket clubs in Hertfordshire - being formed in 1866 and have played at Lucas Lane since 1947.
We are a club which enjoys a strong, vibrant and enthusiastic club spirit and provides cricket facilities for all abilities and ages.
Members come from the town of Hitchin, surrounding towns and villages in North Herts and even from neighbouring counties.
We are 150 years old in 2016 and are one of Hertfordshire's most established senior clubs. We have 2 lovely cricket grounds with fantastic views across the countryside. We run 4 mens' sides on Saturday's in the Saracens Hertfordshire League, together with a ladies team and a further mens and junior development team on Sundays. We also have a brilliant junior section that caters for school years 3 and upwards to year 11 and a great bunch of ECB qualified and dedicated coaches. We had over 110 colts fixtures for boys and girls in 2015 with more in place for the this 2016 season!
We are proud to be an ECB Clubmark accredited club and a Hertfordshire County Cricket Association Focus Club.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
