Farncombe Cricket Club is based in Surrey, south of Guildford, and plays at Broadwater Park in Summers Road, Farncombe.
We run 3 senior XIs, covering a broad range of abilities, an Academy XI (playing in the Surrey Trust League), as well as various Colt sides. We also play Cup cricket and friendlies. New players of whatever standard are always welcome - as are social members (and we are always very keen to welcome those who wish to participate in the running of the Club). We are a friendly club and run various social activities throughout the year.
Our 1st XI plays in the Surrey Championship on Saturdays (from early May to the end August). Our 2nd XI play in the Surrey County League (also Saturdays) and our 3rd XI plays in the Village Cricket League on Sundays.
Our Club is accredited Clubmark standard by the ECB, which supports a thriving Colts section, catering for players from U8 to U17. The Colts section is the bedrock of the Club with many senior players having progressed through its ranks.
Our Club has the usual facilities of a fully stocked bar, a well-equipped kitchen, lounge area, including various social facilities (pool table, TV, darts, etc) and is available for hire for parties, social events, meetings and classes.

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.
