Knebworth Park Cricket Club

 
It's a hit!

Set in the beautiful grounds of Knebworth House the Knebworth Park Cricket Club is one of the most progressive clubs in the county of Hertfordshire.

SENIOR CRICKET
This year, the club's first team plays in the ECB Home Counties Premier Division 2 East and fields a further five sides in the Saracens Herts League; and on Sundays there is three elevens and a development side.

We are the only club in Hertfordshire with six league elevens and the majority of our players are products of the club's outstanding youth policy.
The club's young captain Ryan Skeggs first began playing at the club when he was only four and another important product of the club's youth system is opening bat and county wicketkeeper Tom Jenkins, who has just spent a second winter playing in Australia.

There is an effervescent club spirit - embracing training, playing and socialising. There are no elitists - the first team bond and take an interest in all the other teams. This environment is further stimulated by a trio of Aussie coaches who run the training sessions each Tuesday and Thursday from 6pm.

The club is always open and looking for new players at all levels - see below for more information.

CLUB OF THE YEAR 2004
The end of the 2004 season saw both the 1st and 2nd X1’s Champions of their respective leagues, the 5th X1 promoted from Division 11 and become the first club to field a sixth eleven in the league. The club were the Saracens Hertfordshire League Club of 2004.

NEW NETS FUNDED BY SPORTSMATCH
Groundbreaking new nets are now in use. These are three enclosed nets incorporating bowlers’ run-ups which were funded by Sportsmatch and sponsors F.Cooper and Son Ltd, Home Counties Surfacing and Beckwith Ltd.

BOWLING MACHINE
The club also has a new bowling machine.

NEW THIRD GROUND
In addition to the two pitches established on the Knebworth Park ground we have now taken on a third pitch on Knebworth recreation ground.

COLTS YOUTH CRICKET
We have one of the largest and most successful youth cricket sections in the Home Counties. The season commences on Sunday 17 April starting at 09.30am and finishing at 12:00 approximately and will continue on every Sunday until Sunday 29 August.

For the first time we are running an under-8 team in the league. In fact, all years from under 8 to 15 have a league programme.

Several age groups will be taking part in festivals. In total over 100 matches have so far been arranged and more than 12 coaches and helpers are committed to running training and matches to enable every youngster to progress and to enjoy their sport.

HALF-TERM AND SUMMER COACHING SCHOOL
There’s a Coaching School at half-term and in four weeks of the summer holidays. Phone 01438 817448 for more info or email cj@onetel.net

AUSSIE COACHES
The club will again be supported in its coaching effort by three coaches from Australia including our club coach Graham Rose, who in Australia is responsible for coaching at every age level in central New South Wales from 5 to 19.

CLUBMARK
In 2004 we were one of the few cricket clubs in Hertfordshire to be granted accreditation under ClubMark through the ECB and Sports England. What this means is that the club meets standards in the way it coaches, organises its self, and is recognition that Knebworth Park supports the development of a club that is safe, effective and child friendly.

NEW PLAYERS WELCOME
We welcome new players at both senior and youth levels. No matter what your level of ability and the playing aspiration you may have with such a large number of sides there is a place to fit all shades of talent.
