Hallam Cricket Club


Hallam is one of the oldest cricket club in Yorkshire (over 212 years), with two grounds and a wide range of teams for seniors and a very strong junior section for girls and boys aged 6 years and over. There is coaching available throughout the summer and winter with special coaching weeks held throughout the summer holiday.

For Seniors, Hallam has 5 Saturday League sides - the 1st XI play in the Yorkshire South Premier League, the 2nd XI in the top (Championship) division of the South Yorkshire Senior Cricket League, while the 3rd XI play in the 2nd division, the 4th XI play in the 3rd division and the 5th XI play in the 4th division of the Yorkshire and Derbyshire Cricket League. In addition we have a midweek team who play on Wednesday nights in Premier Division of the Irwin Mitchell Midweek Alliance, two teams on Thursday evenings in the local Last Man Stands leagues and a Sunday afternoon Friendly side.

For Juniors, there are age-group practices and teams at U17, U15, U14, U13, U11 and U9 (the age-group is determined by your age on the 1st September in the year before the start of the season, just like school, so Y6=U11, Y7=U12, Y8=U13 etc). Boys and Girls as young as 6 (or in their Y1 school year) may learn the game with us. Each age group is run by a Senior Club Member, who is an ECB Qualified Coach.  There are also coaching sessions three times a week throughout the winter at Tapton School and in the Summer Holidays the Club runs Coaching Weeks for young cricketers throughout Sheffield. One to one coaching is also available.
