Welcome to Wolverhampton Cricket Club's play cricket website. WCC have a long and established history of success at both senior and junior levels and boasts one of the most picturesque grounds in the country.
Our new, impressive, clubhouse was completed in 2007 and features a huge bar/ lounge area, with spectaculor panoramic views across our main ground.
Being National Champions in 1973 and 1999, and runners up in 1988, together with an excellent record in the prestigous Birmingham & District Premier Cricket League (BDPCL), ensures that our club can look back at its history with great pride and tradition.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
