Evesham CC was established in 1854. The Club has played since 1904 on
the picturesque "Avon Street" ground which is situated off Albert
Road in Evesham on the banks of the River Avon (and sometimes in it!). Evesham CC runs three teams on a Saturday, one on a Sunday and three youth teams.
The club has a flourishing youth policy and has representative sides at Under
11, Under 13, Under 15 and Under 17 level. Youth cricket is organised by a
semi-autonomous Young Cricketers' Committee, made up of parents, coaches, club
officials and young cricketers.
Spectators are welcome to come and watch and enjoy the peaceful riverside
setting. Membership of the Club is open to all, the Club welcomes cricketers of
all levels of ability from aspiring first eleven players to newcomers to the
game, including boys and girls of all ages. The Club is especially welcoming to
volunteers, including umpires, scorers, coaches and those who are willing to
get involved in the administration and running of the Club, perhaps bringing
business and financial experience to meet the modern demands of good Club
The Cricket Club forms part of Evesham Sports Club and is an integral part of
the town community.

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:

By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
