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.

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:

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.
