Ross-on-Wye Cricket Club was founded in 1837. The club’s historic pavilion was built in 1887 and restored in 2005 as part of the ECB’s NatWest CricketForce initiative. Ross CC enjoys a picturesque location, nestling under the spire of St. Mary’s church and close to the beautiful River Wye. It's a glorious place to play cricket. Ross CC is an ECB Focus Club for Herefordshire Cricket and ClubMark accredited. This is a flourishing, family-friendly club and new members are always welcome.
There are currently two senior men’s teams: the First and Second XI play in the Worcester League. A Ladies XI was re-established in 2012 and plays a series of Friendly fixtures. A Friendly XI plays on a Sunday against local and touring teams.
The thriving junior section is run by ECB qualified coaches who all hold First Aid qualifications and up-to-date DBS (previously CRB) certificates.
Junior training for 6-13 year olds (boys & girls) takes place every Wednesday evening from April to September from 6-7.30 p.m.
Senior training (includes boys aged 14+) is every Thursday evening from 6-8 pm with a qualified ECB Level III coach.
Senior training for Women (includes girls aged 14+) is every Wednesday evening from 7.30 - 8.30 p.m.

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:
