Sussex Cricket Club is truly unique and is believed to be the oldest professional sports Club in the world.
Sussex won its first County Championship title in 2003 after a wait of 164 years, and became the dominant team of the decade, winning ten trophies in ten years.
In 2011 and 2012 Sussex reached one quarter final and three semi finals in the two cup competitions as well as rising each season up the table in Division One of the County Championship .
Sussex Cricket is also considered unique in the way the professional side of the game is fully integrated with the recreational and community elements.
