About Us

Pontblyddyn C.C. is one of, if not the, oldest cricket club in Wales with records dating back to the mid 1800’s.  In a beautiful setting on the Hartsheath Estate, with rivers flowing on 3 sides of the ground it has been commented upon by many that it is one of the most picturesque grounds in Great Britain and possibly unique in so much as Sir Garfield Sobers on a visit stated that it was the only ground in the world where he had to cross a river bridge to reach the field of play.

Our first and second  teams play in the North Wales Cricket League, the 1st XI in Division One and the 2nd XI in the Premier 2nd team division.  The 3rd XI team introduces young players on the verge of senior cricket to the longer format of the senior game and in 2018 they will participate in friendly games - please contact us if your club would be interested in arranging a game.

We are proud of our junior section, we are one of the few North Wales clubs to have teams at under 9, 11, 13, and under 15 levels competing in the NEWJCD leagues and CBW national competitions.  In 2018 we will be entering a U19 team in the ECB U19 T20 competition.  We are also actively encouraging girls to play and we have several playing at all age groups. Our ECB CA qualified coaches ensure the youngsters have the highest level of skills training, with coaching at indoor nets during the winter and regular weekly outdoor coaching during the season every Friday night 6.30pm to 8.00pm.

2017 saw the introduction of "All Stars" the new ECB initiative to introduce 5 to 8 year old boys and girls to the game of cricket.  Pontblyddyn had one of the highest number of "All Stars" in North Wales and we look forward to building on that in 2018.  The youngsters are the future of cricket and their development is nurtured at Pontblyddyn, we look to give every youngster the opportunity to fulfil their potential and have developed good links with local schools to encourage youngsters to become involved.  So anyone interested, boys or girls please come and join us – contact: Ian Hampton juniororganiser@pontblyddyncc.org.uk with your enquiry or Nick Jones chairman@pontblyddyncc.org.uk  

Pontblyddyn is an Accredited Club and holds the prestigious CLUBMARK award, for which the club has to be re-Accredited every 3 years, indicating that we are a club that is well managed and organised.

As a community sports club we welcome new members, young and old, we promote a social inclusion policy and we are always looking to encourage local groups to use our clubhouse and facilities.  Please get in touch if you are interested in hiring our fully licensed club-house for birthday parties, christenings, business meetings (Wi-Fi available) etc.  Touring teams are always welcome at all levels.

Enjoy your cricket.
