We provide opportunities for boys and girls of all ages to play cricket in a safe, enjoyable environment. Our club is ECB Clubmark accredited and has been appointed as a Focus club by the Sussex County Cricket board. This underpins our commitment to provide coaching and cricket to youngsters of all abilities in a safe and professional environment and to enable them to maximise their potential.We run more than 20 teams throughout the Summer for our members.Our Project
We are aiming to upgrade the standard of our cricket outfield and the park that we play in. We are fortunate to play in a conservation area. However over the years the lack of regular ground maintenance, together with the drier summers has led to a progressive deterioration in the playing surface. The club is embarking upon an ambitious plan to restore the park playing surface to its former condition with substantial investment in an infrastructure that will solve the problems of lack of water and poor quality grass coverage. Please visit our project page and help us to raise the £39,000 required to 'Turn St John's Park Green'.https://localgiving.org/project/turnstjohnsparkgreen
Why the community needs us
Our club was voted Active Sussex Club of the Year and Mid Sussex Community Club of the Year in recognition of the outstanding Community work the club undertakes in and around Burgess Hill. We have established breakfast clubs and twilight cricket coaching sessions for primary school children in Burgess Hill in winter and provide cricket coaching and practice in the summer for in excess of 200 children. We extend use of the clubs cricket facilities to many local primary and secondary schools for their school cricket fixtures. In conjunction with Sussex CCC we have recently established a disability cricket coaching hub.
