The Sussex Cricket Society was formed on 6 April 1965 from a happy thought

by Alan Oakman, the former Sussex and England cricketer.


The aims and objectives of the Society are "To further cricket interest and enthusiasm

and to provide a source of contact between cricket lovers and

to promote and conduct meetings, social functions and other gatherings." 

To this end the Society holds 6 monthly meetings from October through to March


Currently the Society has over 250 members.


All meetings are held at 1st Central County Cricket Ground Eaton Road Hove

Our Programme Includes

-Monthly Meetings-

Monthly meetings are held from October through to March.  At each we have a speaker from the world of cricket - a mixture of Sussex cricket and the wider cricket scene. 

Meetings are held in the Jim Parks bar in the Spen Cama pavilion  or in Cow Corner.


-Lunches/ Teas-

The 6 meetings, all with a speaker are a mixture of lunches and teas. All members are invited to attend and bring a guest. Prices for the lunch or tea for the 2023/24 close season will normally be either £25-35. 

We welcome new members : anyone who interested is invited to join us.

and also contributes a donation towards Sussex Youth Cricket Development as well as awards for individual performances in the Sussex Cricket League
