While most clubs consider BasingMCC to be somewhat parochial, even by the standards of MC, the club has a number of surprising distinctions. In 1967 the players made headlines by barricading themselves into the basinghall, demanding that a proposed ringroad be re-routed to avoid the club grounds. In the event they were able to have their 1825 original Steinclout board listed as a Grade 1 artefact by the IMCS, and the club was saved. Despite its small size, BasingMCC nonetheless contributes over 5% of the national team players, and has dominated the mideast division of the Trellis National League for years. The club mascot, Barney, is a venerable and overweight persian cat, well known for his habit of sleeping on Fenchurch Street.
