Fixture cards are available from the clubhouse. We have a Ladies Team that play in the Midlands Womens League Division Two, a Sunday Friendly XI and an Under 10's team .

A selection committee meets every Monday evening. Team selections are posted on the clubhouse notice board, appear on the play-cricket website and here on the message board . Unavailability for matches should be notified to the captain as early as possible.

The Quatt Oval is an excellent venue for playing or watching cricket. The wicket is renowned for its quality and the outfield is invariably fast, helping to produce high scores and entertainment for spectators. Mobile covers and sightscreens are available for use. The pavilion has recently had its changing facilities upgraded and Umpires rooms available. We have a good scorebox. We have a non-turf net practice area but we also have a portable net that is used on the edge of the square. In 2005 the Club purchased a bowling machine which is regulaly used at our training nights on Tuesday's and Thursday's. Over the past couple of seasons the Quatt Oval regularly features as a host club for County Squads, County Schools and Local Authority Active Sports. QCC qualified coaches are used by local schools to develop cricket locally.
