Welcome to

Abberton & District Cricket Club

Abberton & District Cricket Club

We are a family friendly, community based club located just outside Colchester. We have been playing cricket throughout Essex and Suffolk for over seventy years.

Most of our matches are played Saturdays and Sundays, and a local pub side make use of our ground during the week along with the Colts (Junior Players). On a match day the clubhouse bar is always open, why not come down and have a drink whilst supporting your local cricket club.

While we play every game to win, our first aim is to enjoy our cricket. We welcome players of all shapes, sizes and talents, whether they want to play one game or twenty games a season. After being promoted for the 2018 season we narrowly missed out on promotion coming 3rd in Division 3 of the Two Counties cricket league. We are aiming once again for promotion and recuriting for the 2022 Season.
