We are a friendly Cricket Club situated in the heart of the Topsham community, where a warm welcome awaits those of all ages who want fun, enjoyment and competition. Please therefore get in touch if you are moving to the Exeter area, or if you already live here, and wish to get involved with a local progressive Cricket Club either as a player or in some other way eg as an Umpire, Scorer or Colts Coach/Manager.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
