Cirencester Cricket Club
Cirencester Cricket Club plays on the beautiful ground in Cirencester Park, half way up the main ride from Cecily Hill on the left hand side.
The club runs 3 Saturday adult teams, an Evening Twenty/20 XI, a Sunday Friendly team and the full range of junior sides from Under 7 to Under 18. Work is under way to introduce Girls and Women's cricket.
The Club was founded in the early 1800's with official records dating from 1842. Famous players to have graced 'The Park' include WG Grace and his brothers, Jack Russell, Mike Proctor and Sherwin Campbell. Spring 2010 saw the club visited by England and Wales Cricket Board Chairman Giles Clarke to support its contribution to the successful annual NatWest CricketForce facilities regeneration event.
The Youth section is a priority to enable as many young people as possible to both play the game and gain the benefits of contributing to the development of the Club. The ground has 2 squares, enabling the rare sight of simultaneous games being played on numerous occasions during the season, and a new net facility for training and developing the cricketers of the future. Off the field, the Pavilion includes a bar and social area for players and guests. A key strength of the club is its dedicated and hard working volunteers, who deal with all aspects of the running of the club.
Cirencester Cricket Club offers a timeless English scene. Visitors are most welcome to watch cricket from the patio area, or the relaxing benches under the trees.
