Cricket in Blackpool

Situated at Stanley Park just off the M55 near the town centre, Blackpool Cricket Club [map] has a number of teams, and the clubhouse is also used by other organisations.

As far as cricket goes, the first and second teams play in the Northern Premier League alongside the likes of Fleetwood, Barrow and Lancaster, while the third and forth teams play in the Fylde Cricket League. There are also a number of junior teams including Under 11, Under 13, Under 17 and Under 18s, which have all enjoyed great success in recent times.

The cricket club is also used as Blackpool Stanley Rugby Club’s headquarters, while the Blackpool Men’s Hockey Team use the clubhouse as a base, along with three squash teams.

Blackpool Cricket Club has brought home many honours throughout its history, particularly in the early 90's when, amongst other league honours, the first team won the National Club Championship at Lords in 1990 and the Lancashire Knockout Trophy three times in 1989, 1990 and 1995.

Many star names have graced the pitch at Stanley Park over the years, including Bill Alley, Rohan Kanhai and more recently Jack Simmons, Richie Richardson, Hamesh Anthony and Heath Davies.

Stanley Park [map] also plays host to a number of county games throughout the season, as Lancashire County Cricket Club uses it as an outground.

In the recent times Blackpool has hosted both County Championship matches and G & G Trophy games, with Sky Sports cameras there to capture all the action.
