About Us

Our History

Founded in 1785 and based at our current location The Quarters, Hursley Park for over 70 years, HPCC aims to provide the facilities and organisation for members of Hursley village and the surrounding area to enjoy cricket.

We are a village cricket club that has competed, and won, at national level in the past and a ladies section that competes at national level today. Players who have come through the club from youth level to men’s cricket include Adi Aymes, who played first class cricket as a batsman and wicketkeeper for Hampshire, and Chris Tremlett who played international cricket for England in all three formats and domestically for Hampshire and Surrey. Chris was part of the successful 2010 Ashes tour to Australia.

Club membership is open to all, players and non-players alike. With 4 men's Saturday league teams, 1 Sunday team (plus a Cup team), 3 Women’s league teams and a strong Juniors organisation (boys and girls), from age 5 (AllStars) to age 18, we welcome players of any age, ability or sex to share an enjoyment of cricket, nurture new talent and build a sense of community and team spirit.

HPCC was awarded Clubmark status in 2005. ECB Clubmark shows that a club is sustainable, well run and provides the right environment for its members. Clubmark accreditation also means your club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages, as well as assuring parents and carers that they are choosing the right option for their young people.

If you are interested in joining the club please come and visit us at The Quarters.

Teamo (player platform and registration)

Hursley Park Cricket Club (HPCC) has chosen to use Teamo for the club’s new membership database and communications hub.

Teamo gives the club a secure database and managed email system via an interactive app which will be used for club registration, subscriptions and match fees. It also includes a full team management facility to help managers, players and officials manage availability, team selection, fixtures, results, social events and more.

Teamo helps to remove much of the hassle from team management. For managers, coaches and players, Teamo should mean we spend less time on logistics and administration and more time focusing on the teams and people playing the game.

To help with GDPR, there is also Safeguarding support for our juniors built into the app with Guardians linked to under 18 players and cc'd on all communications. Please note; a Guardian must register any player under 18. Guardians can add more than one child or adult to their profile, so you only need one profile for a family.

You apply for Hursley Park Cricket Club membership by clicking this linkhttps://teamo.chat/club/register/hpcc 

Once your personal details have been saved you will be asked a few more questions relevant to the club such as which team you are looking to join, so please make sure you wait for these questions to load and complete all the extra questions otherwise we cannot complete your registration. ****


Joining Our Club: Please contact the Head of Cricket for each section in the first instance; registtration is via the club's player platform called Teamo.

Selection: Players should take particular note of scheduled starting times of all matches. For home matches, players should arrive at the Quarters one hour prior to play and be willing to assist with pre-match preparation.

Club Rules: Players are respectfully reminded that they should acquaint themselves with the Club rules.

Young Cricket: Children are welcome at the Quarters, but should be under supervision in the vicinity of the pavilion. Our own Juniors are reminded to take their kit along when spectating - you may be needed.

Should you be able to help with volunteering I would be delighted to hear from you, we always need more people willing to help with the huge amount of work at the club.

HPCC Anti-Bullying Policy

Statement of intent

We are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our children so they can train, and play, in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at our club. If bullying does occur, all children should be able to tell, and know, incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. We are a TELLING club. This means anyone who knows bullying is happening is expected to tell staff and officials.

What is bullying?

Bullying is the use of aggression with the intention of hurting another person. Bullying results in pain and distress to the victim. Bullying can take many forms some of which we’ve listed below:

  • Emotional: being unfriendly, excluding, tormenting (for example: hiding kit, or making threatening gestures)
  • Physical: pushing, kicking, hitting, punching or any use of violence
  • Racist: racial taunts, graffiti and/or gestures
  • Sexual: unwanted physical contact or sexually abusive comments
  • Homophobic: because of, or focusing on, the issue of sexuality
  • Verbal: name-calling, sarcasm, spreading rumours and teasing
  • Cyber: All areas of the internet, such as email and internet chatrooms. Mobile threats by text message and/or calls.
  • Misuse of associated technology, such as camera and video facilities

Why is it important to respond to bullying?

Bullying hurts. No one should be a victim of bullying. Everyone has the right to be treated with respect. Children who are bullying need to learn different ways of behaving. Cricket clubs have a responsibility to respond promptly, and effectively, to issues of bullying.

Objectives of this policy:

  • All officials, coaching and non-coaching staff, children and parents should have an understanding of what bullying is.
  • All officials, coaching and non-coaching staff should know what the club policy is on bullying, and follow it when bullying is reported.
  • All children and parents should know what the club policy is on bullying, and what they should do if bullying arises.
  • As a club, we take bullying seriously. Children and parents should be assured they will be supported when bullying is reported.
  • Bullying will not be tolerated.


  • Report bullying incidents to the Club Welfare Officer
  • In cases of serious bullying, the incidents will be reported to the ECB Child Protection Team for advice via the County Welfare Officer
  • Parents should be informed and will be asked to come to a meeting to discuss the problem.
  • If necessary, and appropriate, police will be consulted
  • The bullying behaviour or threats of bullying must be investigated and the bullying stopped quickly.
  • An attempt will be made to help the bully (bullies) change their behaviour In cases of adults reported to be bullying cricketers under 18, the ECB must always be informed and will advise on action to be taken.


We will use KIDSCAPE methods to help children prevent bullying. As and when appropriate, these may include:

  • Writing a set of club rules
  • Signing a behaviour contract
  • Having discussions about bullying and why it matters

Willow Tree Project 🌳


Hursley Park Cricket Club introduce a sustainable English Willow Tree planting programme lasting generations.

The aim is in 15 years we have Hursley Park Cricket playing members using cricket bats grown on our own club/estate grounds.

We would have a project team of mixed ages & genders (8 to 80 years old) who learn skills in planting & cultivating willow trees & project skills.

These skills are then passed on through the generations. The project will also generate a sustainable revenue stream to the cricket club.
