Loughton Cricket Club
Loughton Cricket Club was 130 years old in 2009. The club was formed in 1879.
We are a non-profit making club and all funds raised are invested in improving the facilities at the ground.
We have a five year Development Plan and set ourselves achievable goals.
We have within the last ten years built a new pavilion, refurbished our thatch changing rooms and replaced our old scorebox with a modern electronic scoring system.
We also set about a programme of training coaches and attracting youngsters as well as forming a Women's team. We are one of only a few Essex Clubs to still play in a picturesque town centre location. The thatch pavilion is over 80 years old.
We now run five League sides on Saturdays. Our first XI is in The Premier Division of the Shepherd Neame Essex Premier League. The League is recognised by the English Cricket Board. In the Premier League we finished 3rd in 2003 and 4th in 2004.
Our Women's team is the strongest in Essex and plays in the National South League.
We have three international standard practice nets and a completely renovated eighteen pitch cricket square.
We were one of the first clubs in Essex to achieve Clubmark in 2003 and in 2007 completed the process of reaccreditation.
Clubmark is the universally recognised mark of high quality junior sports clubs. Clubmark recognition ensures that children and young people can enjoy sport in a safe and fun environment giving peace of mind to parents and carers.
Loughton runs junior sides from 9 to 16 and has over 30 active qualified coaches.
We enter adult and junior indoor competition throughout the winter.
We are always looking to strengthen all our sides and to provide competitive and social cricket at all levels of ability.
