    Sherwood Cricket Club boasts a vibrant Youth Section with our sides playing in the Readers Medway Youth League in all the age groups (Under 11 Hardball and Softball, Under 13, Under 15, and Under 17) and also in the Medway Youth Festival for Under 16 teams, which takes place in August. In 2013 we launched our Under 7 programme focusing on the development of our future generation of cricketers.

    We have 90+ Youth members, starting as young as 5 years old, and many of our older Youth cricketers represent the Club at senior level in friendly and league matches. The future of Sherwood C.C. is our Youth Section, so we aim to provide a structured coaching programme and a positive playing environment which will help our Youth players to develop their personal and cricketing skills for use in later life.
