Hi, and welcome to the Oakhill Taverners CC website. We are a young club, formed in 1991 to enjoy the finer points of the game and especially the after-match social side. Based at the Oakhill in Beckenham, Kent we regularly travel to the deepest recesses of North and East Kent, Surrey and Greater London in our quest to play cricket. New members and supporters are always welcome, as are prospective opponents. Our season will typically consist of 15+ friendly fixtures on a Sunday afternoon, with a tour included. In recent years we have travelled as far as Budapest, Malta, Croatia, Prague, Ljubljana, Munich and Minehead.
Check out our fixture list for games in your area and pop-along to watch us in action, or if you fancy joining a young, vibrant club then please contact the Club Captain. Here's to a great season.....
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.

The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
