Axbridge Cricket Club was re-established in 2004 and plays friendly matches against a combination of local and touring sides. We play mid–week usually on a Wednesday evening (20/20) and Sunday afternoons (40 over) games.
New members of all abilities are very welcome. Matches take place at the picturesque Allerton ground near Chapel Allerton or at Sidcot School. All games are played in a friendly spirit. We try our best to win, but only after ensuring that everyone who wants to has a bat, a bowl or ideally both.
Our youth policy encourages young players as well as old. We welcome and encourage new members to join us. So if you live in Axbridge or any of the surrounding villages and want to play cricket with a friendly and inclusive club please do get in touch with us.
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.

The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
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.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
