Mersham Sports is the perfect club for cricketers young and old.
Whether you have a sporty child keen on trying something new or are an elder statesman with an arm that barely gets above the horizontal (and there are a few!), Mersham caters for all.
The men’s section has a lengthy history of Kent Village League success and the picturesque ground, lovingly prepared by legendary clubman Ian Fagg, is renowned as a beautiful place to play. For the younger members, there is a thriving and ever-expanding colts section that is the cornerstone of the club. Plenty of senior players have progressed through the ranks under the top-draw coaches, all of whom are dedicated volunteers.
To back up the development of the next generation of cricketers, Mersham have worked hard to be awarded the prestigious Clubmark award, given to those that meet strict ECB guidelines within youth development, and by being at the for front of cricket development within Ashford.
The club offer children from as young as four or five, whether they are boys or girls, the chance to get into cricket.
We are also an ECB’s AllStars Centre. The programme is perfect for 5-8 year olds new to cricket and includes all the equipment you need. 8 fun packed sessions during the summer help to introduce children to the glorious game.
At first eleven level, Mersham compete in the Kent Regional League (Premiership) as well as the Kent Village League, with a side predominantly made up of young players stepping up from the colts system.
The second eleven counterparts also play in the Kent Regional League on Saturdays.
The newly formed Women’s XI play in the Kent Cricket Women’s T20 League.
Junior sides from Under 11 compete in the Ashford District Junior League and the Under 9’s play softball festivals in the Kent Cricket Mini Super 8’s.
