This is the home page of Eltham Cricket Club. We play social but competitive cricket, mostly on Saturdays, but occasionally on Sundays.

We like to play with a smile. If you like your cricket friendly, and you'd like to play for us, please contact us.

RIP Robin

16th April 2019

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Robin Ackerley, Eltham's wicketkeeper between 1996 and 2003, following a long illness. Robin was Head of English at Bexley Grammar School, and although always self-deprecating about his cricketing abilities, loved the game and brought warmth and humour to every game that he played for us.

Asked to pen his own update for the Bexley Grammar School magazine following his departure to Cheshire in 2003, Robin wrote that he had "played unsuccessfully at golf and cricket, keeping wicket for Eltham Cricket Club, a sort of rest home for elderly cricketers mainly of BGS extraction". Those elderly cricketers of BGS extraction, and elsewhere, pass on their condolences to Gloria and Robin's family, and will always cherish the memory of Robin's matches with us.

The 2018 Season

16th Feb 2018


The 2018 season is now over, and what an enjoyable one it was. Seasoned (ok, elderly...) regulars were joined by new players such as Gam Gurung and Charlie Lingard, who injected some much-needed youth into the proceedings. The fact that they are both great blokes was a bonus! We were also joined fleetingly by Prakash and Priyanshu who will hopefully join us more regularly next year, as both seemed to fit in very well indeed.

We have the annual Jim Hill Golf Day on Sat, 6th October - if you'd like to play, contact Pete Swain asap. Also coming up on 2nd November is the Annual Dinner, where the season's awards will be - well, awarded. We hope to see as many there as possible.
