Welcome to Redcar Cricket Club
Redcar Cricket Club is steeped in history, having been formed in 1850 as Redcar & Coatham Cricket Club, and
its ground is in a conservation area within the Parish of Coatham.
We run three senior teams in the North Yorkshire & South Durham ECB Premier League and an array of junior teams from under-11s upwards. We have ECB qualified coaches and work closely with the local schools under
the government initiative “School Sports Partnership”. Many club-organised and school-organised events are staged on our ground during the season.
Redcar Cricket Club is ECB Clubmark accredited and is a designated “Focus Club” within the English Cricket Board structure. Excellent facilities are available to all players and to social members.
There are two function rooms within the clubhouse which are available for hire.
The larger room is suitable for christenings, parties, celebration events and fundraising activities, and can accommodate 80 -100 guests. The smaller room is adequate for community groups, social gatherings and meetings where the attendance is between 30 and 40.
The club is also the home base for Redcar Running Club which meets every Wednesday evening and whose members enter various local and national events.
New senior and junior cricketers are always welcome, as are new runners.
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
