Guildford Cricket Club has a proven track record in developing some of the finest cricketers in England.
The development of our junior section is at the very heart of what the club looks to achieve.
Players such Martin & Darren Bicknell, Rikki Clarke, Jade Dernbach and Ashley Giles have all graduated from Guildford Cricket Club.
We have a clearly defined club ethos and player/parent code of conduct.
Our objectives are clear - we want to foster a happy, safe and unpressurised environment where children can develop a love for the game that they can take through life and along the way produce the next generation of England cricketers.
