Welcome to Effingham Cricket Club
Effingham is a wonderful family cricket club for both senior and junior cricketers in the Borough of Guildford in Surrey. The Cricket Ground lies at the edge of Effingham Common and was originally known as The Calburn Cricket Field. The site was given to the Parish Council by the Lord of the Manor, Mr Calburn and has existed since 1853.
Known as “The Ships”, the club runs two adult teams in the Fullers Brewery Surrey Cricket League, and a Sunday XI in the Village Cricket League. Our Youth Development Programme has cricketers as young as 5 years old, and junior teams play in the West Surrey Youth Cricket League.
“Welcome to Effingham Cricket Club, a family club at the heart of the community with a rewarding cricketing experience for everyone.”
I am Ray Pritchard and it is my pleasure as Club President to welcome you to Effingham Cricket Club.
Since our very first Friday evening training session this year, the social side of the club has gone from strength to strength. Seeing between 30 and 40 5-8 year olds having fun on our outfield, was a clear indication that Effingham Cricket Club regards catering for the younger generation as a major priority and we continue to see success and enjoyment at all the colts levels for our players and their families.
Senior cricket is thriving at Effingham and regularly produces some entertaining contests, as well as some outstanding performances from players of all ages. Every cricket season at Effingham provides an opportunity for the club to build on the enjoyment and success we have all experienced at this wonderful Club.
We have a range of sponsorship opportunities available for any individual or organisation wishing to help support a growing club. Any financial support we receive is invested into improving the club facilities and enhancing the long term plans we have for leaving a lasting legacy of cricket in Effingham for future generations.

Small Grant Scheme 2017
Our sincere thanks go to the EWCT for awarding Effingham CC an incredible £3,000 grant as part of their small grant scheme 2017. The scheme is designed to help clubs make small changes to improve their long-term sustainability and/or to increase the number of games played during the season.
At Effingham, we put the funds alongside a club contribution of £1,400 to acquire new mobile covers. This essential equipment directly contributed to improved playing conditions in 12 fixtures and ensured that 5 matches were actually played that would otherwise have been cancelled.
