Yarm Cricket Club
Established in 1814, Yarm Cricket Club continues to provide the local community with the opportunity to participate and enjoy the game of cricket. In recent years we have developed our pavilion facilities, achieved ECB Clubmark accreditation, increased participation and are continually looking to develop all aspects of the club. More information is available from our blogs: The Inspired Pavilion Development & History of Yarm Cricket Club
We field 3 senior teams in the ECB North Yorkshire & South Durham Cricket League, a Friendly XI and 5 junior teams at Under 11, 12, 13, 15 and 17. We also run a Junior Academy, providing cricket coaching to kids from the age 5 to 9.
New senior playing members are always welcome, with cricket being played at all levels from the competitive nature of the 1st XI, to the more laid back and social Friendly XI. For next season we would be particularly keen to hear from competent team players, who feel they could bolster our 1st & 2nd XI and help us improve on our performance in 2014. For all senior enquiries, please contact Gareth Jones (Club Captain).
New junior members are the lifeblood of any good club and we are no different. In recent years our ECB Coaches and assistants have done a fantastic job, introducing local kids of all ages to the sport and helping them to develop into exceptional young players. For 2015, juniors are welcome at any age from 5 - 17, but we'd be particularly keen to see more players of 12-15 get involved. For all junior enquiries, please contact Chris Gibbons (Elite 9 - 17) or Stewart Ballantyne (Academy 5 – 9).

These are exciting times to be involved in Yarm Cricket Club and we are always on the look out for new Volunteers. We have a wide range of volunteer opportunities available throughout the club, from Committee positions through to ground and coaching assistants. We also welcome enquiries from any local students undertaking Duke of Edinburgh schemes or those who would just like to improve their CV's.
Sponsorship and fundraising plays a major role in all clubs and we are no different. This year we have benefited from numerous features in local press and it's hoped this will continue into next year as we celebrate our bicentennial. We can offer sponsors great coverage via our large social media presence, on-site advertising and tailored to suit packages. We have packages available from £25 and if you or your company are interested please get in touch.

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:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
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.
The four themes are:
