Founded in 1857, we are a club with a wonderful cricketing history, all of which was celebrated throughout 2007 as we reached our 150th year! The first team is supported by a progressive playing structure. The 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th XIs compete in the ECB: Surrey Championship with both the 1st and 3rd XIs playing at Premiership level.
Sunday XIs compete in the Surrey Development League, various cup competitions, and some strong friendlies. Plus our Mid-Week XI's similarly friendly cricket, reinforce the belief that the main reason for playing this wonderful game is for enjoyment and the social perspective which cricket should foster.
There is an expanding and successful colts section at the club, which provides the various regional and county age-group squads with a growing supply of emerging young cricketers. Age-groups from U8 to U16 represent the club in the North East & Central Surrey Colts League.
By holding the England & Wales Cricket Board’s, (ECB) ‘Clubmark’ accreditation, Sutton CC is recognised as providing good quality cricket programmes for young people. In addition, the ‘Clubmark’ accreditation scheme is fully integrated with ‘Safe Hands,’ the ECB’s welfare of young people in Cricket policy.

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:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
