The National Trust granted Silverdale Cricket Club (formed in 1893) a lease for 21 years to develop a new village cricket ground in December 1995. During 2018 negotiations for a new 15 year lease with the Trust were completed, securing our tenure for the immediate future.
Since 1995 the Club has raised enough money to erect a new pavilion with a club room, kitchen, bar area and changing facilities. Money has been raised from various activities including 100 Clubs, Gold Bond Draws, Coffee Mornings, Disco’s, Exhibition matches, and village appeals. We are always extremely grateful for the support we get from our local residents.
For the 2023 season our senior teams will be in Division 2 and Division 3 of the Westmorland Cricket league, and we welcome both junior and senior players who want to take part in our cricket activities.
The club has two qualified Club Welfare Officers to ensure that all safety practices are carried out and monitored, and we are working towards the ECB Club Mark Standard. Our Club Coaches offer good quality training to our juniors.
The club also boasts a very busy social life, with many activities taking place throughout the year, and we welcome everyone to join in and have fun. Our fully licensed bar is open on match days if you fancy a “cold one” whilst watching the cricket. Our social media accounts share more details about what is on offer.
