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.
Weekend round up
Unexpected rain on Friday left some wickets damp when play started on Saturday afternoon.
Both Taplow teams will feel disappointed by the outcome of their league matches.
At Royal Ascot, Taplow reached 100 for the loss of two wickets before finishing on 141. The home team reached their target from 41 overs.
At Taplow, the seconds batting first scored 113 against Hillingdon Manor. Although eight wickets tumbled, the visitors got the runs needed from 26 overs.
Sunday afternoon saw the return of “Taplow teas”, served outside and observing Covid regulations. As this trial was a success, we hope to be able to continue with teas on Sundays. For Saturday league games, for now we will continue to ask players to bring their own teas, in line with league guidelines.
A very enjoyable match against Farnham Royal ended with a win for ten man Taplow.
We would like to thank Ian Pulsford for sponsoring the tea and for letting us all raise a glass to congratulate Ben Pulsford on his wedding on Saturday.
100 Club: The draw for May 2021 was made at the end of the Sunday match against Farnham Royal on 30 May – see here. The winner this month was Jonathan Specktor. Thanks for your support.
2020 season round up
The club was pleased that it was possible to play some cricket this summer, with a shortened season in the Thames Valley Cricket League and Sunday friendlies as well as some colts coaching, all within the COVID guidelines making the activities safe for participants. We thank everyone involved in making this possible.
