Hailsham Cricket Club prides itself on being an inclusive, family friendly Club. We have 4 adult League teams who play on Saturdays in the East Sussex Leagues, a friendly Sunday team, a long running cricket week and 5 junior age groups to cater for cricketers of all age groups, genders and abilities. Alongside the Cricket, there a extensive social side with regular events including quiz nights, the annual horse racing night and curry evenings.
So far in 2015 we have won the Eastbourne Knockout Competition for the first time in the club's history. 2013 and 2014 were both hugely successful seasons for Hailsham Cricket Club for all our 4 adult teams. Our 1st XI won Div 3 and became Champions of the Intersport Trophy, our 2nd XI and 3rd XI both secured promotions and our 4th XI continue to develop strongly, providing an excellent opportunity to introduce our younger players to adult cricket.
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 ensured by 14 ECB qualified coaches, this is as many if not more than any other team locally. This expertise is filtering down into success with our U9s and U12s becoming East Sussex Junior League Winners in 2014 and our U11s winning the prestigious Sussex Junior Cricket Festival in 2013.
2015 promises to be the biggest year in the Clubs recent history with massive projects including taking on a new second ground (Roebuck Park) and the redevelopment of our main Cricket Pavilion. This combined with challenging for more promotions and success at all levels means Hailsham is definitely going to be an exciting Club to be around.

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:
