Bessborough Cricket Club was founded in 1908 and is located in Harrow, North West London. We are based in a secluded area of Headstone Manor Park next to the Harrow Heritage Centre. Our ground has three cricket pitches and a fully functional clubhouse with a bar and wireless broadband.
The 2019 season will see us field three league teams on a Saturday, with our First and Second Elevens playing in the Middlesex Championship.
We also have a U21 side who play in the Middlesex Development League and an U19 side competing in the ECB Club T20.
Bessborough CC also has one of the strongest colts setups in the whole of Middlesex which caters for young players aged 9 to 17.
In the winter months senior and colt teams play in Harrow Cricket Indoor Leagues, whilst other members compete in the local Cricketers Darts League.
Tuesday nights the club is open for socialising and other events, pool competitions, quiz nights etc. Social members and players of all standards are welcomed at this friendly club.
We are currently an ECB Clubmark accredited club. This is awarded to cricket clubs by the England and Wales Cricket Board when the cricket club is able to demonstrate that it meets the ECB Clubmark criteria across four areas:
- Duty of care and safeguarding children
- Cricket programmes the club offers
- Sports equity and ethics
- General club management
ECB Clubmark is an acknowledgement that we take these issues seriously and that we are striving to provide a high quality
and welcoming environment for young participants in cricket.
