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 Hamro Foundation Essex League. We organise an annual Open Age Tour (something we have been arranging since 1966 including tours to Northern Ireland, Barbados, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Devon, Hampshire and Norfolk) as well as specific 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 one of the most enterprising.
2018 was the club's most successful season. Each of our 4 League Saturday XIs gained promotion and we reached the Final of the Dukes Essex League Cup for the second successive year. 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 past winners of the 'Best Hospitality' award in the Essex League on numerous occasions, as well as past winners in 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).
