Welcome to the website of Abberton & District Cricket Club, a small community club on the outskirts of Colchester, Essex.
The club hosts two senior sides both Saturday & Sunday featuring in two leagues. We also host a variety of mid-week evening cricket, featuring Mens, Ladies and Colts (Junior) Teams.
Like all clubs we are eager to sign new players so if anyone is interested in playing at any standard please do not hesitate to contact us, we are always eager to see new faces down at the clubhouse.
On a match day the bar is always open from 1pm ish, with the cheapest prices around why not come down and have a drink whilst supporting your local cricket club.
We all look forward to welcoming you to Abberton & District Cricket Club sometime during the season.
