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.
Cricket can return!
The news we were waiting for was announced on Friday – approval for recreational cricket to return on 11 July.
We need to wait for guidance from the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) in the next few days. Their statement is here.
The Thames Valley Cricket League is also waiting – but has a proposal for a 9-match season, with fixtures beginning on 18 July. More details here.
In the meantime, Colts training has returned to the club on Tuesday and Friday evenings.
More news as we have it – but we hope to see the return of cricket soon, albeit with some changes to ensure that this is in a safe way that conforms to the guidelines. And hopefully the weather might improve – maybe the return of those sunny, warm days of April and May!
100 Club montly draw
We hope that everyone is staying safe and well during the current Covid-19 crisis.
We are pleased to announce that the 100 Club is back, with a monthly draw. Things will need to be slightly different, as we cannot have the draw after matches – but will be shown here on the website. The draw for June can be seen here:
Please do support, if you can – we still have a few numbers available. You could win a prize, and the 100 Club provides much needed funds for the club. Please contact Sue Barton for details. email: firstname.lastname@example.org or 07986 347636.
In the meantime, if you are missing the club have a look at this aerial view, which was shot by drone last summer.
We hope we can see you back at Taplow Cricket Club soon!
