Why Sponsor Us?

In order to survive and to continually improve our facilities for the local community, the club relies on sponsorship from local businesses – and this is where we would like to work alongside you.

Increased brand awareness, raising the profile of your business in our community

Do you want to raise the profile of your business or organisation? Great Baddow Cricket Club is keen to develop new relationships with businesses who can offer beneficial products and services to our local community.

Sponsoring us will raise the profile of your business and benefit you in the following ways: 

  • Exposure to hundreds in the local area and players and spectators from visiting teams 
  • Publicity in local papers 
  • Increased brand awareness on our website and social media accounts
  • Satisfaction from giving back to the community 
  • You’re supporting a much-needed local amenity which brings enjoyment to many. 

All revenue raised is returned to the club to improve facilities for our players and spectators who love cricket.

Engage with our many members and capitalise on our strong social media following

Great Baddow Cricket Club is in the heart of community with links to a sizeable and diverse audience base surrounding the club. In addition to our large membership and extensive supporter network, we understand the importance and power of the internet and social media. We therefore use our website, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to promote our club, fixtures and sponsors with a total following of over 2000 people.

We’re an extremely social club who pride themselves on being warm, friendly and family-orientated. We regularly host events throughout the year and we’d be happy to host a sponsored networking event if desired.

Great Baddow Cricket Club has an array of sponsorship opportunities which can be tailored to meet your objectives. Through sponsorship, our club will promote your company in a wide variety of ways enriching the profile of your business in our community. 

Get involved in grassroots sport and remove economic barriers making sport affordable, accessible and inclusive for all

Sponsorship of a grassroots sport delivers a much higher return on investment than traditional advertising. This is because sponsorship allows your business to become directly involved in activities that are highly valued by local consumers.

Great Baddow Cricket Club is proud of its strong bonds with the community and enjoys supporting and engaging with local initiatives. Consumers are known to form strong positive associations with sponsors who support the development of grassroots sport and also contribute to the local area and by directly supporting us, you’re helping to remove economic barriers — making cricket affordable, accessible and inclusive for all in the community.

History of Our Club

Great Baddow Cricket Club has a long and proud tradition dating back to the first recorded game in 1791. After the Second World War, the Club moved from its old ground at Estric in Galleywood Road and began to play at their present home, Great Baddow Recreation Ground. 

The Club currently compete in the Mid Essex Cricket League on a Saturday, with the First Team in Premier Division and the Seconds in Division 7 and Thirds in Division 11. We also have a Sunday XI and 20/20 XI with a full list of friendly matches against local clubs.  

In 1999 it became clear that the Club was not attracting sufficient young members to guarantee its long-term survival. An ambitious Development Plan was drawn up in partnership with Essex County Cricket Club and Great Baddow High School. Subsequent Lottery funding was secured which allowed us to introduce grassroots coaching in the area.  

As a result, we now have thriving youth section which competes in the Central Essex Cricket Board’s Under 15, Under 13, Under 11 and Under 9. In 2007, we became an ECB Focus Club. In the 2014 season we will have 20 youth players representing district and County level which demonstrates excellent progress in the development of the players. Many of our youth members have gone on to represent and establish themselves in our senior teams. 

Club members, family and friends also enjoy many social events throughout the year including a tour to Sussex and quiz nights. Our two major events are the family day when all the colts and senior members take part in a variety of cricket competitions on a Sunday during the season and the annual presentation evening held at the end of the season. 

During the season, net sessions and coaching takes place at the Rec and during the winter regular coaching and nets continue at Writtle Cricket Centre, Skeggs Farm. 



With membership and crowd attendances rising, we have ambitious plans to continue to develop the infrastructure at the club and grow our teams.

Naturally, we want to support our sponsors and build them in to our club on a strategic level — allowing all of our partners to benefit from our ever-improving facilities, expanding audience and our community involvement.
