Pagham Cricket Club is a well-established and friendly club
near Bognor Regis in West Sussex. We currently have two playing sides in the
Sussex Cricket League on Saturdays, as well as three local sides representing
the club on Sundays and midweek. All these teams play against a wide variety of
clubs in Sussex and Hampshire.
There are also opportunities for youth players from ages 10
to 13 and beyond to enter cricket. Our youth team setup competes in the local Colts
league and the Sussex Junior Cricket Festival held throughout July and August.
The Pagham wicket is widely acknowledged as one of the best
in the local area. In the 1970s, Sussex County Cricket Club (S.C.C.C). held two
First Class matches at the ground against Oxford University in 1976 and 1979, according
to the Cricinfo website (www.espncricinfo.com).
This makes our ground a member of an elite group of 340 grounds in the UK.
The club currently has two artificial net bays in addition
to a new state of the art mobile net used for grass wicket practise and
coaching sessions, which is supervised by badge holding coaches.
Pagham Cricket Club is a registered community amateur sports
club and is attached to both the Sussex Cricket Board and the England Cricket
Board (ECB), and has been accredited with the ‘ECB Club Mark’.
The Cricket Club Clubhouse also has bar and kitchen
facilities open on match days and for club functions. This clubhouse is also available
