Welcome to Hinton Charterhouse Cricket Club 2017   The Club is located in the centre of the village just off Branch Road. The entrance is about 200 metres from the main road that runs through the village at the cross roads with Wellow Lane.

SUNDAY DEVELOPMENT XI This team has won its Division and earned pomotion for next year. Well done!
On Friday 1st July 2016 the Cricket Club held a charity  20:20 cricket match between HCC Team Members and a team of Bath Rugby Legends.  The event was held to raise money for Dorothy House Hospice Care and Bath Rugby Foundation.  Generously supported by local sponsors it was a great evening of cricket, with a BBQ, bar and raffle and the chance for autograph hunters to meet some of their favourite Bath players.
