The Club currently fields three adult sides in the Gunn & Moore South Notts Cricket League on Saturdays and two in the Mansfield & District Cricket League on Sundays. In addition the Club runs two Kwik Cricket teams for the younger members plus junior teams in the Mansfield & District Youth Cricket League for Under 11, Under 12, Under 13 and Under 15 age groups.
Training takes place at Nuncargate each week during the summer and at Kirkby College during the winter for both boys and girls from the age of eight upwards.
The Club has strong links with a number of local schools, both primary & secondary. These schools are visited for coaching, primarily through the ECB Chance 2 Shine scheme, and school tournaments are also held on Nuncargate during the summer months.
The Club is looking forward positively and is currently wishing to expand by acquiring or renting a second ground within the Kirkby-in-Ashfield area as the Saturday 3rd team plays its home games on the ground of local neighbours Byron Abbey, located in the picturesque grounds of nearby Newstead Abbey. Whilst recognising that suitable land is not easy to come by it remains a serious goal for the continued future growth of cricket in the local area.
Kirkby Portland is a club which believes that cricket should be played seriously but, more importantly, that its members enjoy the game and have fun. Visitors and spectators are always assured of a warm welcome.
Many of the players from the Notts. Golden Years of Cricket came from Kirkby-in-Ashfield. The Club aims to ensure that this heritage is never forgotten and that cricket in this region has a bright future.
