Mitcham Cricket Green is the oldest continuously played on cricket green in the world, with cricket being traced back to 1685 - 333 years ago.
Mitcham Cricket Club has a long history. They are former Surrey Champions and have produced a number of Test players including James Southerton who played in the very first Test in 1877, and current club President David M Smith who played for England in the 1980s and started his cricketing journey as a Mitcham junior.
The historic Mitcham CC pavilion was built for the club in 1904. Now a developer who owns the freehold of the pavilion is looking to develop the site. The developer has refused to recognize Mitcham CC's long standing lease for the pavilion.
We are raising funds to support our campaign to transfer the ownership of the pavilion to allow the club to develop the facilities, allow year-round community use of the building and safeguard the future of cricket on this historic site.
Please help spread the word to the cricket family.
