Originated in 1893, Felbridge Cricket Club was and still is, a friendly club based at the beautifully maintained (and award winning) Chartham Ground in Felbridge, which borders Surrey and Sussex at the north end of East Grinstead. In 2001 Felbridge Cricket Club and Sunnyside Cricket Club – based at East Court in East Grinstead, joined forces to create Felbridge and Sunnyside C.C. as we now know it.
The club achieved Clubmark Re-accreditation in 2017 and we continue to develop our junior set up as it is the life blood of our club. In 2012 after a huge fundraising effort from the club and generous grants received from various organisations we were able to implement our new nets. This is an excellent facility and will help us to develop our players even further. In 2014 we secured funding to purchase mobile ptich covers which will further enhance the playing experience. Further funding has allowed us to purchase a new roller in 2015 which has helped improve the playing surface and we are close to securing a new square mower. Over the winter of 2017 we have had our square relaid in preparation for the coming season.
The club’s logo shows the Sussex martlets and the Prince of Wales feathers (with his Surrey C.C. connections), separated by the boundary rope. On the Chartham ground with the right bat in your hand, it is possible to hit a cricket ball from Surrey into Sussex, as the county’s borders lie along the bottom end of the park.
The Pavilion with modern kitchen and wood finished bar, is available for private hire. Contact the Bar Manager for further details.
Or, if you want to, just come down to the ground on a lovely week-end evening, sit on the bank with your favourite glass and enjoy the sound of leather on willow!
