Friends of Arundel Castle Cricket Club




Dear Members and Stakeholders,

Following conversations with various third parties we have now taken the decision to further extend our own closure period until 1st July.  Unfortunately, this means we will not be hosting any Matches or events of any kind at Arundel before that date.

We will of course keep you informed with the fixture developments. You will appreciate that neither the Sydney University match or National Schools T20 Finals will be taking place in early July.  We are actively looking to move some matches from June into July, August and September. I can share positive news in that we have already penciled in Sir Tim Rice’s Heartaches for Saturday 15th August.

Best wishes, James Rufey.

Welcome to the Friends of Arundel Castle Cricket Club (FACCC) website, which represents something very special. I have no doubt that it will capture your imagination and provide a small glimpse into the outstanding Cricketing and Educational environment we provide.

As a Club, we host the most fabulous and varied fixture list, which includes a Sussex CCC festival, ECB development matches, MCC, Oxford & Cambridge Universities and visits from many established overseas teams. We also host Women’s matches including England and Sussex fixtures.

Members of the Club enjoy free entry to matches along with other membership benefits including exclusive lunches, why not join us?

As well as having one of the most beautiful grounds in the world, we are fortunate to have an excellent Indoor Cricket School, which hosts a variety of courses and educational projects. We also offer opportunities to attend Lunches and Cricketing talks throughout the year.

We work in partnership with the Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation, a charity which, under the leadership of Tim Shutt, continues to grow and achieve the most wonderful outcomes, benefiting thousands of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and children with special needs.  It is the most brilliant scene.

Another real strength is our link with the Sussex Martlets who hold seven of their home matches at the Arundel Castle ground each year.

FACCC with its magnificent ground in the heart of the West Sussex countryside, provides the most outstanding all-round cricketing programme.  I would encourage you to come and see for yourself – you won’t be disappointed!
