Egham, Vicarage Road, TW20 8NP
Egham Cricket Club was founded in the mid 1800?s, restructured in 1913 and moved to its present location in 1969, which was then a green field site. Now the ground is second to none. Over the past year the pavilion has been extended to incorporate two new changing rooms, umpires room. and score box with an electronic/computerised score board. The interior has been modernised, completely refurbished and decorated throughout. Overall we now have probably the best ground, pavilion, and facilities in the league.
Our first, second, and third elevens play in the Surrey Championship League; and the first eleven in the Thameside Sunday League. In 2006 the second eleven were league champions, going the whole season unbeaten and promoted to Division one. The third eleven finished Runners-up and sealed promotion also to Division One & the first eleven narrowly missed out on making it a clean sweep with all three sides securing promotion that year. In 2007 the third eleven narrowly missed out on back to back promotions and yet again the first eleven came near but not near enough! The second eleven, playing for the first time in Division one finished mid table and saw nothing to really worry them at the higher level. I am sure 2008 will bring further success on all three fronts, with the first team achieving the promotion they so much deserve.
Our Colt and youth cricket initiatives are considerable and we have been recognised by the National Cricket Association for our efforts. One hundred and twenty Colts from eight to sixteen attend our Monday evening coaching sessions. We have twelve Colt Managers including eight English Cricket Board qualified coaches. Over fifty of the colts are playing in organised league cricket for under 11, 13, 15, and 16 age groups. A considerable number of colts regularly represent Surrey and Berkshire at full county level in their respective age groups. The Club originated, and have for over 25 years administered the Colts leagues, for the Jim Warden Trophy under 11?s and the Ray Denne Cup for under 13?s.
Off the field the Club has a very active social life ranging from Quiz nights to Poker evenings, Discos to Race evenings, Barbeques to party nights and many other events
