We'd like to tempt you to come and play cricket in beautiful surroundings on Cholesbury Common, high in the Chiltern Hills. Hawridge & Cholesbury Cricket Club is looking to increase its playing membership and welcomes players of all ages and abilities.
The club has two teams, a Saturday team that plays in the Mid Bucks League and a Sunday team that plays friendly matches against local and visiting clubs. All home matches take place on the Cholesbury Common, pictured above. The club also enjoys a large and healthy colts membership, with enthusiastic youngsters from ages 7 to 15, that practice on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, with matches mainly on Friday evenings and Sunday mornings.
Affiliated to the Club Cricket Conference and Bucks Cricket Board, Hawridge & Cholesbury has a superb pitch, with excellent facilities, including a bar in the clubhouse.
The club is actively working towards achieving a Clubmark accreditation.
This long-established village club, founded in 1885, is forward looking and offers a warm and friendly welcome to newcomers. (Editor's Note: It has recently been discovered that a match took place on the common in 1843 against West Wycombe, so the club's vintage is in the process of being re-evaluated).
If your club would like to play a friendly against us, please make contact. Touring teams are especially welcome!
For further information, please call Club Secretary Stephanie Hill on 01494 757 264 / 07961 044550 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
