Welcome to Hatfield Heath Cricket Club

Hatfield Heath is a picturesque and friendly village located in Essex, England. Cricket has been at the forefront of village life for over a hundred years. Our ground, The Heath, is situated in the heart of the village on show to all those who pass through. It is a wonderful place to be during the summer months. The club play on Saturdays in the Herts and Essex Cricket League, as well as friendly matches on a Sunday.

Help us celebrate our 150th anniversary

Cricket has been played on our unique, ancient heath for a century and a half. The local village derby between Hatfield Heath and Hallingbury on 22nd September 1868 marks the first recorded match. For many years, cattle and sheep grazed the ground keeping the outfield under control but there were times when the grass was tall enough to hide a person lying down and runs had to be restricted to six if the ball was lost! In 1894, the playing area was levelled for the first time and the ground as we know it today took shape. However, in 1944, a bomb fell on the square, completely devastating the ground and it wasn’t until 1949 when cricket was played again. The local landmark, the pavilion, was opened at the start of the 1966 season with over 100 people attending the ceremony.

On Sunday 8th July 2018, we celebrated the past, present and future with a festival of cricket. The day started with two junior matches, HHCC v LHCC (two age groups), which were fiercely contested right down to the final delivery. It was a credit to both cricket clubs the level of skill on display and the fine spirit in which both matches were played. A big thanks goes to Little Hallingbury CC for their help on the day. This was followed by the Chairman’s XI v Captain’s XI match which truly embodied the spirit of our fine club. Up to three generations of families took to the field, with player both young and old enjoying a wonderful day in the sun, at the heart of our great village.
