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 will be 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 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 2014 with more in place for the coming 2015 season!
We are proud to be an ECB Clubmark accredited club and a Hertfordshire County Cricket Association Focus Club.
We play in the Hertfordshire Junior Leagues.

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:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
