Gerrards Cross Cricket Club (GXCC or The Cross)
Dukes Lane, Gerrards Cross Bucks, SL9 7JZ
Tucked away just off Dukes Lane in Gerrards Cross, is an oasis of tennis and cricket. Many have no idea that this beautiful ground exists and when new visitors arrive, it really takes their breath away.
Gerrards Cross ‘United’ Cricket Club was founded in 1882. The club dropped the ‘United’ from its name in 1892, before moving to its present ground in 1912.
In the 1950s the GXCC Colts section was formed to encourage youngsters to play during the holidays and fixtures were arranged against neighbouring clubs.
GXCC now runs two Saturday teams, the 1XI and 2XI who play in the Thames Valley League and a Sunday XI who play ‘friendly’ matches at home and away to other local clubs. We have well over 200 Girls and Boys learning and playing Colts cricket, aged from 5 years upwards.
Most of our current 1st and 2nd XIs and Sunday team players have made their way through the junior ranks and the club is also proud of the number of colts who have and continue to represent Bucks CCC at all levels and include the current 1st XI captain, Tom Hampton.
A number a famous players have also played for GXCC in the past including Kiwis: Hamish Marshall and Grant Elliot, Aussie: Ryan Harris, former England captain Andrew Strauss and Alex Hales.
GXCC is a community club run by local volunteers, we accept anyone who wants to learn and play cricket.
High Wycombe CC
London Rd, High Wycombe, HP11 1DE
High Wycombe Cricket Club has been the holy grail of cricket since 1823. Playing on London Road, our members have access to the best quality facilities that are constantly maintained and improved. HWCC has and continues to develop young cricketers into outstanding senior players. As a result, we field 5 successful men’s league sides and a range of youth sides, from our minis (age 5) through to our U19’s, and are proudly supported by Chiltern Consultancy - independent financial advisors. We have won the Home Counties Premier League Championship a record 7 times, and in 2020 won the Home Counties adapted pooled league. Our junior sides are regular champions in both their respective leagues as well as the Bucks Cricket Board competitions. More recently, our impressive U13 side won the ECB National Cup.
We have a range of members from all different backgrounds and ages, reflecting the diversity of the local area. We as a club serve as an integral part of the community, offering coaching and excellent facilities from nets to top-quality pitches that the MCC YC program ventures on frequently. It is our mission to get as many young cricketers to begin loving the game just as many have generations before them. We are part of the ‘All-Stars’ initiative that promotes cricket to those between ages five and eight.
High Wycombe Cricket Club is a community-friendly club that strives to bring people together. We often hold member events such as quizzes and fun runs to raise money for our ‘future cricketers’ fund, in which we use to provide greater facilities and training.
