2016 has been a massive success for the club with the 1st XI securing their highest league finish in division 1 in the last 50 years (4th) and also retaining the Eastbourne knockout competition. The 3rd XI secured back to back league titles as they won division 9 in fine style thanks to the leadership of Robin and Harry. Our juniors excelled with the U11’s and U14’s going unbeaten throughout the whole season and winning their respective East Sussex Leagues. The U16’s won the Sussex Junior Cricket Festival Plate, with a comprehensive victory over Arundel in the final to cap a remarkable season for all our juniors.
At Hailsham we are extremely keen on getting juniors playing cricket and we have over 100 boys and girls who train and play matches for the Club between the ages of 5 - 16. Hailsham Cricket Club has been awarded the Clubmark status under the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). Their development is supported by 14 ECB qualified coaches, this is as many if not more than any other team locally
2016 was also extremely productive for the club off the pitch with the 3rd and 4th XI having use of a brand new cricket pavilion at the picturesque Roebuck Park. Roebuck Park will be used for more junior and senior games in the coming years to allow all members the chance to play at this stunning cricket venue. We have developed links between the club and Tim Van Noort's cricket academy Skillz, we look forward to working with each other in the future.

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:
