Hartley Wintney is one of the oldest and most beautifully sited cricket clubs in the country.
The Club is a founder member of the Hampshire Cricket League - in which the Saturday 2nd and 3rd XIs compete - and the Three Counties Sunday Cricket League in which the 1st XI participates. Since 2002 the Saturday 1st XI have played in the Southern Electric Premier Cricket League. Our Sunday 2nd XI has a full programme of friendly fixtures. Friendly matches, evening limited-over knock-out games and a short tour of Cornwall in September are regular events.
We have a strong youth section with boys teams at Under 9, 11, 13, 15 and 17, and girls teams at Under 12, 13, and 14, competing in the North Hampshire Cricket Development Association leagues.
Hartley Wintney is Clubmark-accredited and is an active participant in Chance to Shine, promoting and supporting cricket in local schools. The club is also a Hampshire Cricket Development Board Focus Club, with an active and ambitious plan for the future.
For several years running, we have hosted a Hampshire County Cricket Club XI match against our own 1st XI. We also hold regular social events, many of which are publicised in the calendar above.

of the league season sees the 1st XI finish 9th (of 10), the

CC 1st XI, SPL Div 1
Andover win - Andover 223 for 8 off 50 overs, Hartley 125 ao off 32.5 overs. Aaron Wivell 73.
Tadley CC 2nd XI, HCL Reg Div 3 NE
Hartley win - Hartley 183 for 8 off 42 overs, AWE 148 ao off 32 overs. Kaesy Steele 74*. Naqi Sadiq 4-12 off 4 overs.
vs Woodley CC [Friendly]
Woodley win - Woodley 218 ao off 40 overs, Hartley 182-8 off 40 overs. Jamie Teale 53* (ret no). James Brooke-Webb 3-48 off 7 overs (including a wicket on his last ball bowled as a HWCC regular!).
eventful week one way or the other, with the 1st XI squad
suffering from some nasty injuries acquired both on and off
the field, a rumoured win for the 2s (though you shouldn't
always believe what a bloke tells you in a bar), and five of
the 3s scoring more runs than their respective ages, harder
than it sounds in some cases! Many of the 3s also
feature in the final U15A report of the season too.
& Newnham Basics CC 1st XI, SPL Div 1
Hook win - Hook 408-5 off 50 overs, Hartley 211-9 off 39.5 overs. Aaron Wivell 76.
Common CC 2nd XI, HCL Reg Div 3 NE
A complete performance from the 3rd XI this week.
Matt Brown (51), Graham Selden (41) and James Darnell (29) established a great base for the mid-order to have-a-go with Ryan Mulcahy (28 n.o.) and Tom Kirkpatrick (19 n.o.) to finish the team on 220-5.
Similarly the bowlers put pressure on the oppo early only conceding 56 off the first 20 overs; James Darnell 1-19 off 6 (his longest spell in cricket!) and Tim Soper 1-19 off 10. 88-4 to 96-9 saw Naqi Sadiq 2-20 and Graham Selden, 5-39 off 8 (with his last 2 overs 5-5!), end the game very quickly. To take the last 6 wickets for 8 runs was a superb effort. Well done team!
Particular mentions should go to our up-and-coming colts this week. Thoroughly engaging in the game and enjoying what the longer format has to offer.
finish to the season could see a possible promotion!
Pyestock CC [Friendly]
Pyestock win - Pyestock 221-3 off 40 overs, Hartley 204-5 off 40 overs. Dan Bowles 44.
U15A – match tied!
Great entertainment at a gloriously sunny Eversley this morning. Under 15s and 9:30am starts do not normally go together well and this was evidenced by some of our bowling and fielding having won the toss and invited Eversley to bat on a greenish surface.
was the last match all 10 HWCC players bowled with our two
best bowlers, James Darnell and Angus Brown, getting through
four overs each. Eversley reached an above par total of
161 in 20 overs that the guys chased down with gusto.
Kerr was taught to count 1,2,3,4,5,Yes! And made 43 from the
first 21 balls of the innings with opening partner Tom
Kirkpatrick having faced just one delivery. The chase
pivoted around 39 not out retired by Jake Meakin, I think a
career best, and other useful contributions not least from Tom
Brooke-Webb who hit a ball losing 6 in his 16 off 9
balls. 6 needed off the last over to win and one off the
last ball that went through to the ‘keeper who ran Angus
out. Match tied, Cricket was the winner.
fitting end to a very enjoyable U15A season.
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.
The four themes are:
