Here at Waterlooville Cricket Club we offer opportunities for boys and girls of all ages to get involved in cricket.
Currently we operate three Saturday league sides who play at various levels in the Hampshire League pyramid. With the 1st XI gaining promotion back to the Southern Cricket League after an unbeaten 2013 season. We also offer Sunday and Midweek cricket for all abilities against both touring and local sides.
Our thriving junior section encompasses sides at U9; U11; U13 and U15 age groups who each enter their respective South East Hampshire Cricket Association competitions in addition to certain festivals and cups.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
