About the club

Streatham & Marlborough Cricket Club was formed in 2003 after the merger of two long established local clubs – Streatham CC (1805) and Marlborough (1870) CC. The club has two cricket pitches, three lanes of artificial nets and a pitch-side pavilion which is open during match and training days.

We are actively looking for new members in all sections to keep this brilliantly inclusive club growing and reaching its potential! Come and join us!!

For the latest fixtures and results, go to Streatham & Marlborough on the Play Cricket website.

This short film made by two of our members gives a taste of what we’re all about…

Men’s cricket

Do you have a glorious cover drive in your locker? Do you possess a googly, doosra or flipper? Can you deliver in-swinging yorkers at will?

Or… do you hoick to cow corner, serve up pies and talk a good game at the bar like the majority of us?

If you fit the bill for any of these requirements, then we are the club for you!  We run four Saturday league teams in the Surrey Championship, two Saturday teams in the Kent League and friendly sides where availability dictates so can cater a wide range of abilities. We also have a Twenty20 side, two Sunday sides, a Development X1 and a midweek side.

Please contact Daniel Ellis if you’re interested in joining.

Ladies’ cricket

SMCC Ladies started in 2009 and is looking to expand it’s playing membership. They won the Surrey Trust Ladies League at their first attempt in 2012 and are a thriving part of the club with regular coaching sessions.

Please contact Emma Williams if you’re interested in joining.

This includes training, matches and a club shirt. In addition, we normally run social events, such as a trip to watch a T20 match at the Oval (free or nearly free tickets) and an end of season fun day and award ceremony (nominal entry charge may apply). Mid-season joiners will be charged only for the remaining part of the season.

*Reduced match fees will apply to juniors playing in development XI and senior matches (fees pay for the food and drinks provided at senior matches).

How to register:
Registration this year will be on training nights. We are aiming to grow our numbers and run more teams, so we do not currently have a waiting list and we do not anticipate needing to cap player numbers in any age-groups. We aim to give all players (as long as they have the skills to safely do so) plenty of match time.

Pavilion appeal


Whilst serving its members well for many years the clubhouse is now unfit for purpose and threatens our future existence. To meet our objectives, it has become imperative that the current buildings are replaced with facilities that are financially sustainable, meet the needs of the users, and encourages greater sporting activity by the local community.

We getting close to being within reach of raising the £600,000-£700,000 needed to build the new pavilion. See our Pavilion page for the full story, if you would like to help, please donate using the button below or contact our Chairman, John Greenwood, for further details.
