About Peterborough Town Cricket Club
We are an ECB Premier League Cricket Club in Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and East Anglia.
The 1st XI play in the Premier Division of the ECB Northants League on Saturdays and were champions, winning a trio of titles twice, in 2012, 2013, 2014, and again in 2019, 2020 and 2021. We reached the national semi-finals of the ECB National Club T20 competition in 2014, after reaching the quarter-finals in 2011 and 2013. We claimed the Northants T20 Champions in 2011, 2013, 2014, 2018, 2021 and 2023.
The 2nd XI play in Division 1 of the Northants League after winning the Division 2 title in 2021 (and also in 2020, although there was no promotion during that shortened season due to the pandemic). They also won the Division 2 Knockout Final, and the Northants T20 Championship for second tier teams for the first time in 2021 under the captaincy of Balaji Ganesan.
All Northants league matches are played at the Dalrod Sports Ground and in 2018 Peterborough Town CC was awarded as the 'Best NCL ground Premier to Division 3' by the Northamptonshire Cricket League, this is mainly thanks to the fantastic work of our groundsman and former PTCC player Gary Rice.
The Saturday 3rd XI play in Hunts Division 2, playing their home matches at the Thomas Deacon Academy (Directions).
The Sunday 1st XI play in Division 1 of the Rutland League, winning the league three seasons in a row in 2010, 2011, 2012, then in 2014, and then four in a row, in 2019, 2020, 2021 and in 2022. Sunday's are more geared towards development of younger players, to gain valuable experience in a competitive league environment. We have also won the Rutland League's John Wilcox Cup in 2009, 2011 and 2013. The Sunday 2nd XI play in Division 4 'East' and is predominantly a youth team with a few experienced players, which gives junior players an excellent platform in the senior game.
We are very proud of the standard of cricket we play, but also the services we offer to cricketers of all abilities and backgrounds including our junior cricketers and the services we offer to the wider community. We are an ECB All Stars and Dynamo cricket centre. Many of our juniors have gone on to play senior 1st and 2nd team cricket, representative cricket for Huntingdonshire, Minor Counties for Cambridgeshire and on to first-class cricket. We run junior teams from Under 9s up to Under 19s at PTCC.
We have had huge success in running the ECB All Stars Programme for the past 5 years, this 8 week programme is back for 2023 for boys and girls aged 5 to 8 years old. The programme is designed to introduce children to the sport, allowing them to have fun, learn new skills and make friends! We have also run the ECB Dynamos programme for girls aged 8 to 11 in 2021 and 2022, and it will be back again in 2023 to help build our girls section at the club.
We welcome all new members. We run junior teams and practice for boys and girls from Under 9 to Under 19.
In 2005, we were one of the first clubs in the country to receive Clubmark accreditation from the ECB. The Club was re-accredited in 2022.
A brand new electronic scoreboard was installed at the start of the 2018 season. We have a 2 lane artificial net practice facility that was laid at the start of the 2009 season and refurbished in 2020.
Peterborough Town CC is part of the City of Peterborough Sports Club, a club with the objective of playing and providing the best standard of sport possible, illustrated by the strength of the cricket club and its facilities and the hockey club.
Excellent facilities all round in which to play cricket from under 9 level right up to the Premier League.
