Blackheath Cricket Club is one of the leading cricket clubs in London. Formed over one hundred and fifty years ago and sporting a colourful history, Blackheath fields 8 teams every Saturday, 3 on a Sunday and also operates an extensive youth section as well as a growing women’s section. The 1st XI play in the Premier Division of the Kent League, one of the strongest amateur cricket leagues in the UK.
The Club’s 2nd, 3rd and 4th XIs also play in to the Kent Premier League structure making the number of opportunities available for high level cricket at one club relatively unique. As such the Club has recently opened a new second ground at the Academy in Woolwich.
The Club’s other XIs, Sunday teams, midweek programme and vibrant social scene mean there is a place for everyone from current internationals to complete beginners.
Blackheath also has one of the leading youth sections in the UK, regularly progressing to the latter stages of the ECB National U13 and U15 Cup competitions. An ECB Focus Club with Clubmark accreditation and a wealth of experienced coaches, Blackheath provides an environment where young people can enjoy the game recreationally but also supports a steady stream of young people to access county age-group squads.
Blackheath Cricket Club is situated in the London Borough of Greenwich but serves much of central south and east London. As such the Club prides itself on a diverse membership with players from around the UK and around the world currently calling the Club’s Rectory Field ground home.

DBD DENTS DURHAM IN DUBAI
Following a succesful 2013-14 winter spent in Brisbane, Blackheath and Kent's Daniel Bell-Drummond has continued his good form for the MCC in the annual Champions Match against the previous year's County Championship winners in Dubai.
Daniel was selected to play for the MCC against Durham in a side that was captained by India's Virenda Sehwag and included England spinners Monty Panesar and Samit Patel, and former New Zealand all-rounder Andre Adams.
Batting at 3, Daniel hit an assured 54 in a 102 run partnership with Lancashire's Luis Reece as the MCC replied to Durham's 1st innings score of 248.
