Spondon Cricket Club was established in 1883 and moved from the original ground in Royal Hill Road to our new splendid facilities at Locko Road, in 2006
We pride ourselves on having some of the best views of any club in the county, two magnificent pitches, a purpose built two-storey pavilion and excellent training facilities.
This is the home of 4 senior teams, a ladies XI and 11 junior teams.
Our junior section of 180+ boys and girls train every Wednesday evening during the season, playing at all levels from the age of 7 in kwik cricket to U17s. Many of our young players are also regular stars in the senior teams and perform well at district and county levels.
Spondon C.C. is regarded as one of the leading clubs in the county for developing girls cricket. Our girls currently represent S.C.C. at kwik cricket, U13 and U15 as well as at district and county level.
In October 2013 Spondon C.C. was awarded Clubmark Reaccreditation. This award demonstrates the Club's ongoing commitment to being a ‘safe effective and child friendly’ cricket club.
Life at Spondon Cricket Club is more than just sport. Our spacious and relaxed pavilion, complete with well-stocked bar - is the venue for a wide range of social activities for all ages.
We extend a warm invitation to all.
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.
The four themes are:
