Taplow Cricket Club

Bringing English Village Cricket to life

Taplow Cricket Club has been part of the local community since 1850.

Playing at the top of the hill on the picturesque Ten Acres ground, the club currently runs two Saturday teams playing in the Thames Valley Cricket League and a Sunday eleven for all ages which plays competitive but friendly matches.

The club has a thriving Colts section which provides coaching for boys and girls age 6 and up, with an opportunity to get experience of playing in teams in junior league cricket.

The club is always interested in finding new players who may be interested in joining the club.

There are also opportunities for sponsors who might be interested in supporting the club.
