Hello and welcome to Sapper Cricket online, the home of the Royal Engineers Cricket Club.
The Royal Engineers Cricket Club is open to all serving members of the Corps. In addition to competing in the Inter-Corps 50 Power Cup and Inter-Corps T20 competition, we also play a number of long-standing fixtures against civilian clubs. The show-piece fixture of the season is a 3-day game against the Royal Artillery.
Home matches are played at the No 1 Ground in Chatham, Kent. The Club undertakes an overseas tour every 3 years and in recent years the team has toured Barbados (four times) and Australia.

The 2018 fixtures for the Royal Engineers Cricket Club have now been finalised and updated here on our website. After a development 2017 season, the Royal Engineers Cricket Club are looking to progress and be successful in 2018. With our recent tour to Australia now completed where our players were put to the test, here’s hoping the great club can be victorious this year.
