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.

Thanks for all your support for Mitcham CC's fight to save its pavilion and keep cricket alive on the world's oldest cricket green.

Since we launched our campaign we have been overwhelmed by the support from our friends, our neighbours and the cricket community.

At a public hearing into new plans for the pavilion and adjoining site, the developers said they would give the cricket club a lease but only AFTER they get planning permission for their full development. Their plans would reduce the size of the land the pavilion sits on, and improvements to the pavilion are not going to be paid for by the developers.

This has strengthened our resolve to safeguard our future away from Phoenix Group Investments Ltd. The funds raised through this site will be ringfenced to support us in that fight.

The Lashings World XI will come to Mitcham in September. Their appearance will be the centre piece of a fundraising weekend (7-9 September). More to announce soon. #333notout
