ONE OF HERTFORDSHIRE'S MOST FLOURISHING CRICKET CLUBS
Knebworth Park is one of Hertfordshire's most flourishing cricket clubs. It has two adjoining grounds beautifully situated in front of Knebworth House and has first-class practice facilities.
The first XI is in the Saracens Herts League Championship Division.
Furthermore, we’re one of the few in the county to run six senior league teams on a Saturday – and on Sundays run a senior XI and an occasional development XI.
The club is seeking new players to strengthen its teams at all levels.
There is a thriving social spirit with regular social events and a well-stocked bar where paid-up members benefit from discounted prices.
Indoor nets begin on 8 January and continue until Easter at 7.30pm on Wednesdays at Highfield School in Letchworth.
VIBRANT YOUTH SECTION
We have a large and vibrant junior section, with teams at every age group from under-9 to under-16 and youngsters can begin playing from the age of six. The club boasts more coaches for junior teams than any other in Hertfordshire.
In 2013 it won an unrivalled four county titles - the under 11, under 13, under 13 girls and under 15 championships.
Girls’ cricket is a key element of the club’s activities with two teams in the Herts leagues and several girls picked for different county age groups.
Seniors training, which includes juniors who play in the senior sides, is at 6pm every Tuesday

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:
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.
