Portishead CC is a friendly, family orientated club which welcomes players of all abilities. With 4 senior teams and a thriving junior section, we aim to be an inclusive cricket club and offer cricket to all who wish to play.
Senior training nights are on Wednesday evenings starting at 6pm at the Lakegrounds. If you would like to join pop along to a training session and introduce yourself and we can discuss everything cricket with you. Alternatively, you can email any of the senior captains (all details can be found on the About Us page under Officials) and we will be happy to respond to any queries you may have. Senior matches are on weekends, we have 3 teams competing in leagues on a Saturday and we also run a friendly XI on Sundays with the occasional mid-week game.
Our thriving junior section covers U7's all the way up to U15''s with all U17's encouraged to join the senior setup. U7's through to U13's all train on a Friday night at the Lakegrounds with the U15's training on a Tuesday night. If you would like to know more or get involved please feel free to pop down on a Friday night or get in touch with our Junior Cricket Admin (all details can be found on the About Us page under Officials).
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
