Brackenfell Cricket Club was founded in 1974 by cricket lover Vernon Bassett.Brackenfell Cricket

We obtained special permission from the Western Province Cricket Association to play in the Boland League, despite falling within the Western Province geographical boundaries.

In the late 1970's Brackenfell CC applied to the Western Province Cricket Union for permission to become a fully-fledged member of the Boland Union. This was granted without any objection. Brackenfell immediatly made its mark in Boland, with Vernon Bassett the captain of a team which at one stage included six Bassett brothers.

The club gained first league status in 1981 and in its first season reigned supreme by winning the one day competition. However during the 1983 season, Brackenfell CC had to disband because the club had no facilities or field. After discussion with the Brackenfell municipal authorities the present sportsfields were developed, which has been in use since 1985.

The club competes in Boland's top Boland league and has produced many provincial players and one national player in John Commins and Stiaan van Zyl.

We are also very proud of the achievements of Marais Erasmus. Marais captained Brackenfell for many seasons and formed an integral part of the Brackenfell team who dominated Boland Cricket in the early 90's.

Marais is currently on the elite umpiring panel of the ICC.

Brackenfell is a well disciplined and proud club. We continue to serve the community by creating a venue where cricket players, cricket lovers, our youth and friends can come and relax. For some it's a place of relaxation, for others, its where we play the best game in the world.
