The Cricket Writers’ Club exists to further the interests of all those who work in the media coverage of cricket, and the interests of cricket itself. CWC started as a social club for cricket writers in 1946. It now comprises all aspects of the cricket media – broadcast, written and photography. Current sponsors are Lord's Taverners and William Hill, and the club's activities are much expanded.


In the UK, the club remains a great focal point for the sense of community around the cricket media. Importantly, it does much else besides, including:


- Liaising with clubs & ECB on media facilities incl sustainability initiatives, disability access, catering & dietary requirements of local and touring media
- Liaising with ECB on accreditation procedures for local and visiting media
- Supporting journalism through the judging of the ECB Domestic Journalism Awards
- Supporting the next generation through the running of student Cricket Writing Workshops
- Arranging the Club’s flagship event, the Annual Lunch
- Supporting current players through the CWC Awards, presented at the Annual Lunch.
- Supporting authors through the CWC Book Award, presented at the Annual Lunch

- Promoting the activities of our sponsors
- Arranging summer socials, including with the visiting touring media in the men’s and women’s game.
- Arranging social mixed cricket fixtures against MCC, ECB or the touring media. 
- Maintaining archives, celebrating the history of the cricket media and its members

The Club is administered by a Main Committee, with Sub-Committees assigned to specific areas. Everything is voluntary. 


We welcome new members from all parts of the cricket media, both from within the British Isles and abroad. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
