  • A Pillar of the Local Community

    Rainham Cricket Club has been an established part of the Rainham community since 1896. The club prides itself on its social agenda as well as its competitive cricketing history.
    The club has invested massively in its Youth sections and developed strong and sustainable links with local schools and community groups.

  • A Club on the Up and Up

    Our hard work off the pitch is paying dividends on it. The First XI has been promoted in four of the last five seasons, while the Second XI have achieved an unprecedented five consecutive promotions. The Third XI has achieved back-to-back promotions and a Fourth XI is considering entry into the T-Rippon in the next year or two.
    With an insatiable feel-good factor on and off the pitch, the sky is really the limit...

  • Inspiring the Next Generation

    The club have recently acquired the prestigious Clubmark accreditation which ensures on- and off-field practices are of the highest standard as well as ensuring the club facilities and coaching create a safe and enjoyable environment for younger players.

  • Family Spirit Embodied Through Cricket

    With excellent playing and social opportunities for the whole family, perhaps the most important quality of Rainham Cricket Club is its spirit and warm, friendly atmosphere.
    The club is acknowledged by most others and members past and present as a unique place to be and you will find that once you join our club you have real friends for life.
    Come and see for yourself!

  • An Opportunity for Corporate Relationships

    Cricket continues on a national level to invest heavily in grass roots development and Rainham Cricket Club provides an excellent platform for local companies and national organisations alike to maximise their potential media coverage and PR exposure.
    Many organisations have already benefited from such an equitable relationship, showing excellent returns on their investment.

Aviva Funding – Repairs to Bowlers Run up to Outdoor Nets

Posted Sat, 22 Oct 2016 08:25 by peter.j.reynolds. Permalink

I have applied for funding to Aviva for £10,000 so the bowlers run ups can be replaced to the outdoor net facility with artificial strips. In order to try to obtain funding we have to obtain as many votes as we can from today until Mid November.

You can cast up to 10 votes each just by clicking on the link below, then registrering, then search under ‘Rainham’ (make sure you choose our Rainhm Essex project for the bowlers run up and not the Rainham Kent project) and then cast your 10 votes.


Please use social media and tell family and friends so we can obtain as many votes as possible, as the most votes will receive the funding.
