Truro Cricket Club was founded in 1813 and celebrated it's Bicentenary season in 2013. The club has been based at Boscawen Park, Malpas, Truro since 1961. In 2011 we celebrated 50 years at Boscawen Park, which has hosted many high profile matches and been graced by many top international cricketers. On the 8th July 2012 we welcomed England Ladies V India Ladies in what we believe to be the first competitive international match to be played in Cornwall, since 1899 when England were defeated by Australia at Truro's Tremorvah ground. The PCA Masters visit to Truro to play against a Cornwall XI on 5th July 2012 was sadly cancelled due to poor weather. In 2013 we hosted Somerset CCC V Unicorns and Nottinghamshire CCC V Netherlands in CB40 Fixtures.
The Club currently runs 4 Senior teams, One Women's, as well as Under 11, 13 and 15 Junior Teams.Truro 1st XI compete in the ECB Premier League, the 2nd XI in Division 2 West, 3rd XI in Division 4 West, 4th XI in Division 6 West and the Ladies team in the Cornwall Womens League and the Cornwall Women's Evening League.Please refer to the teams heading for further details.
Truro CC have been County Champions on twelve occasions, between 1949 and 2011 and are proud of the fact that both their 1st and 2nd XI's competed in the top two divisions of the Cornwall Cricket League, between 1993-2000 & 2011.
A number of recent Truro cricketers have competed in first class cricket, to name a few Ryan Driver (Worcs & Lancs), Carl Gazzard & Michael Munday (Both Somerset) and Charles Shreck (Notts, Kent, Leicestershire & England A).

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:
