With a proud history, we are the longest established cricket club in Tonbridge.
Our secluded ground is large compared to many and, coupled with our modern pavilion, offers superb facilities to club members and visitors alike.
There are few finer places to enjoy the final stages of a cricket match than at our ground bathed in the early evening sunshine!
On Saturdays the club competes in the Kent Cricket League with two teams.
The 1st XI promoted (at the first attempt) in 2016 to Div IV and now the 2nd XI promoted from the Kent Regional Cricket League 2A West to Div V 2nd XI.
We also field a Sunday team that plays friendly matches under the banner of Tonbridge Exiles CC.
There is also a thriving junior section (Under 11s and Under 13s) which plays in the Invicta Junior Cricket League for 2018. The Under 11s won the Mid-Kent Youth League Cup in 2016 after being champions of the MKYL U11 Division 2 in 2015. The Under 13s were champions of the MKYL U13 Division 2 in 2016.
Kent Cricket Board Dyno Plumbing T20 Finals Day
Saturday 22nd September
KCCC Spitfire Ground, Canterbury

In the first semi-final, Littlebourne CC beat Sidcup CC by 7 wickets who had finished on 131 for 7. Littlebourne then racked up 133 for 3 from only 16.1 overs

Halfway through the second semi-final the rain turned up. Tonbridge CC managed to close on 120 all out from 16.3 overs after losing the toss and being asked to bat first by Bexley CC. Then the rain which arrived during the innings fell harder necessitating the covers to be put on whilst everyone prayed for a strong wind to shift the looming clouds. But the rain didn't ease and puddles formed on the outfield.
With a dreadful forecast for the afternoon the organisers had no choice but to cancel play for the day and will reschedule for early in 2019!


Chirag Patel in action

From Tweets on the day:

  • We're dealing in boundaries only here! Michael Topham from Tonbridge CC isn't running anywhere, last 5 balls have gone to the boundary and he is 29* from 12 deliveries
  • After five overs, Tonbridge CC are 43-1 and J. Russell is then about to bowl his third over.
  • It was an entertaining knock from Chirag Patel for Tonbridge CC who were now 67-3 from 8 overs in SF2 here at The Spitfire Ground.
  • Those Bexley CC boys in black are pulling it back here! Lush Strikes! Here goes the fifth wicket (Jake Rossiter), taken by the Bexley CC skipper in his first over. Tonbridge CC now 78-5 from 11 overs.
  • Bexley CC finish things off and Tonbridge CC are 120 all out from 16.3 overs. The rain is falling harder and the covers go on.
  • That's it for the day as it turns out!!
