Committed to growing participation across all sectors of the game

In support of ECB’s game-wide strategy Inspiring Generations, Cheshire Cricket Board is committed to growing participation across all sectors of the game.

Cheshire Clubs Cricket Committee

The Cheshire Clubs Cricket Committee was formed in 1997 with the aim of overseeing adult recreational cricket, Senior County Cup competitions also club grants within the cricketing boundaries of Cheshire


The Cheshire County Cricket League for Cheshire's top performing clubs comprising three divisions at 1st and 2nd XI level - Premier, Division 1 and Division 2.

Additionally, there are Sunday 3rd XI competitions and the long established, midweek over 40s tournament.

The CCCL was formed in 1975 when eleven clubs from the Manchester Association and one from the Lancashire & Cheshire League bravely took the plunge and joined the new set up. There were further intakes in 1981 (two clubs), 1993 (10), 1996 (2) and a significant expansion in 1998 when another 11 clubs became members. Over the years there have been new joiners and leavers but since the pre-millennium expansion the structure based on 36 clubs has remained the preferred format.

Below the Cheshire County Cricket League is the Cheshire Cricket League.

Promotion and relegation is between all the divisions in the Cheshire competitions representing a classic county pyramid model.
