A charitable incorporated organisation whose objects and purposes are to enable More People to play cricket in More Places, providing More Cricket in Berkshire.  We want cricket to be available for all communities so that every resident of Berkshire – no matter their age, background or ability may enjoy the benefits of one of our oldest games.  With more people playing, we will ensure the continued success of our first teams who serve as an inspiration to those starting out their playing careers.

We are only able to do all the good work we do through the help and support of residents and businesses in Berkshire. You can get involved by becoming a Friend and sponsor. Contact our CEO Mark Roche if you would like to be part of our journey to create more cricket in Berkshire.



Help us with our ambitious plan to get more people in Berkshire on more programmes and in more places than ever before. This ambition is to recruit 10,000 people to support cricket in the county with a very small contribution to our funding by becoming a Friend of Berkshire Cricket.

MCC Foundation Hub Programme 2024

We are pleased to announce the full details of our MCC Foundation Hub programme for 2024! As usual, you need to attend a state school and not be part of a full county squad, in order to be eligible to take part.

All programmes will involve 15 hours of indoor training, preceded by a trial, between January and April. There will also be a matchplay programme in the summer, including entry into the MCC Foundation’s National Hub competition for all U16 groups. Of course our Reading Hub managed to win this competition this year, in a very memorable day at Lord’s.



Read our friendly Foundation newsletter to find out about the latest club updates, latest news and events, including ways for you to get involved in, and support cricket in your local community. You can also sign up if you're not on our mailing list.
