Belhus Cricket Club runs 5 Saturday XIs, 2 Sunday XIs, a Midweek XI and a Ladies XI and we welcome new members of all levels of ability - both juniors and seniors. We are a 'Focus' club of the England & Wales Cricket Board and were one of the very first clubs in the UK to be awarded 'Clubmark' (the Sport England quality club Accreditation).
Our Saturday XIs compete in the Shepherd Neame Essex League (our 1st XI plays in the Premier Division) and our Sunday 1st XI plays in the Essex Sunday League. We also compete in the ECB National Club Championship and we organise an annual Senior Tour (something we have been arranging since 1966 including tours to Northern Ireland, Barbados, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Devon, Hampshire and Norfolk) as well as many Youth Tours). In the 200-year history of cricket in the borough of Thurrock, and indeed throughout the whole of Essex, our club is widely recognised as the most enterprising.
2018 was the club's most successful season. Each of our 4 SNEL Saturday XIs gained promotion and we reached the Final of the Dukes Essex League Cup for the second successive year - a truly remarkable achievement. It was unprecedented in the history of cricket in the borough of Thurrock, and our club continues to strive to raise standards in all aspects of the game - both on and off the field - for the benefit of the local community.
The club has been winners of the 'Best Hospitality' award in the Shepherd Neame Essex League on numerous occasions, as well as winners of the 'Best Pitch' category. And in 2016, the club lifted the prestigious ECB Indoor Championship of England & Wales (in which 830 teams from 32 counties across the UK competed). At Belhus CC you can be assured of good cricket and camaraderie as well as excellent facilities.
