About us:

Big Town Cricket Club

Established in 1956, Big Town Cricket Club is one of Surrey’s most successful cricket clubs.

We believe sponsorship of our club will deliver value based on a marketing investment for financial return, CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), or for the love of the club.

Whatever your motivation, find out more below. Thank you for visiting our profile.

Why Sponsor Us:

Big Town Cricket Club principally relies on the generosity of local individuals & businesses to provide funding to run as efficiently as possible. Without these contributions the club would not be able to exist in its current form or be able to achieve the goals it has set for itself in the medium to long term.

Big Town Cricket Club boasts a growing membership in excess of 1,000, with season ticket sales increasing significantly in recent times.

The clubhouse is situated within 2 acres of freehold land and has excellent amenities for players, spectators and corporate guests, with dining facilities for up to 100, whilst the ground contains a large stand and capacity for 500 supporters.

We operate in a county with many opportunities and a great community of thousands that will see your brand.

Today:

Throughout the club, Big Town Cricket Clubs ideals reflect crickets core values, such as Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship. And recent market research has overwhelmingly shown that the club comes across as being warm and friendly, providing good quality cricket for all.

Whilst we are ambitious, we also have a strong family ethos, derived from a commitment to youth cricket for all age groups. Furthermore, the club continues to develop strong links with local charities.

All this is underwritten by a diverse sponsor base, at a variety of different levels, which aids the club’s financial stability.

Aspirations:

With membership and crowd attendances rising, we have ambitious plans to develop the infrastructure at the club, to include stadia enhancements. This will allow Big Town Cricket Club to firstly become a more integral part of the local community and also a destination venue providing sports and leisure facilities to a much wider audience.

On the pitch, the club’s ambition is to build on the progression seen both on and off the pitch into the new season. We are aiming for promotion in the coming years and seek to grow both our players and club.

History:

Big Town Cricket Club = 1956 - Present

Big Town Cricket Club has a small history. Being one of the most successful clubs in Surrey has not always been the case. In the last 30 years that name has been developed. Prior 1990 Big Town Cricket Club was a small team with a low number of players, they struggled to pull a team together for a game.

Over the years, past teams have experienced mixed success in leagues, one off tournaments and past tours.

Today we play our cricket in many leagues, the 1st team currently plays semi-professional cricket in South East League. The club also supports a further 5 senior competitive and social sides, plus youth cricket for boys and girls, aged 6 to 18.

The club plays its annual Old Boys match as the final pre-season warm up fixture, competing for the Walters Memorial Trophy in memory of ex-supporter and superstar member Patrick Walters.
