It is over 150 years since first-class cricket was first played on the Bat & Ball ground. 'The Bat' as it is affectionately known is where Gravesend Cricket grew and still grows with an experienced adult section and an exciting Colts section. With a history to relate to and a present and future worth supporting we will always welcome you to be part of 'Our Team'
Gravesend runs a number of league and friendly sides to suit all standards. On a Saturday the 1st XI and 2nd XI play in the Kent Cricket League. The 3rd and 4th XI are development sides with a strong focus on youth development playing in the Kent Regional League. The Shrimper's XI is a Saturday friendly side wandering the length and breadth of Kent and sometimes further afield. Gravesend also run two Sunday sides and a Wednesday XI.
Gravesend have 6 colts teams ranging from Under 17 to Under 11 which play league matches and have training sessions every week. We have coaching sessions on Saturday morning for 6 to 11 year olds. Gravesend have qualified ECB coaches and provide instruction and fun sessions for all abilities.
New senior and junior playing members are welcome. And if playing is not your thing, you are welcome to the ground on Saturdayto watch the first or second team play (the bar is generally open)
