We also provide a community hub for everyone to enjoy the social side of our club in a pleasurable and safe way offering an opportunity to play sport and creating enduring friendships.

Why we do it

We do this to promote the sport of cricket, including its values and to provide an asset within the town of Atherton that we can all benefit from and have pride in.

Where we started

The club was originally formed in 1872 and over the years has gone through many changes and seen some great times. The current committee has a strong focus and determination to continue building on the hard work and dedication that our past members have put into the club to continue to make the club better for everyone by investing in every aspect of it and promoting its place within our community.

As a charity we understand our responsibilities to our members and the wider community and the importance of our position as an organisation.

Get Involved

We are always looking for new people to get involved with the club and as a purely volunteer led club, any contribution that people can provide no matter how big or small is always greatly appreciated.

Our club is a welcoming and enjoyable club and gives all volunteers an opportunity to put something back into the local community to make a positive impact on the lives of the people we serve, whilst also providing a platform for our volunteers to gain a real sense of satisfaction whilst making a positive contribution to society.
