“The Cradle of Cricket”

Founded in 1750, Hambledon Cricket Club was once the most powerful club in the country and earned its reputation as the “cradle of cricket”.

The club now plays at the idyllic Ridge Meadow – its home since the 1780s – and fields three adult teams, the 1st XI playing in Division 2 of the Southern Premier League. We also have a thriving Colts section, with over 150 junior playing members.

We are always looking for keen players, so if you are interested please get in touch!

Chilli Night at the Ridge: Saturday 30 July

Posted by Admin User on

Next Saturday sees this year’s Hambledon CC food extravaganza, courtesy of head chef Amanda Harding.

Starting at about 8pm, after the 1st XI host Sparsholt, we’ll be treated to a chilli con carne (and a chilli senza carne for those of us who are that way inclined).

Please make an effort to come and support the evening, whether you’re playing or not - and if you're not, then come up and support the 1st XI beforehand!

Tight at the Top...

After regaining the lead in the Fantasy Cricket last week, Sam O’Halloran held on to the number one spot by 3 points from second-placed Rhidian Chapman.

But it’s got a whole lot tighter at the top after this week’s results, with only 6 points separating the top 4, with Kev Wingham and George Harding tied in 3rd place.

And with 18 points this week after his 133*, 2 catches and 1 wicket, Shane has stormed to the top of the players’ leader board. It’s going to take something pretty special to close the 20-point gap he has over second-placed Will Bond...

New leader in the Fantasy Cricket league!

Posted by Seb Duggan on

We are now into the second half of the league season, and for the first time since week 1 we have a new leader in the Fantasy Cricket competition!

Yesterday’s results mean that Rhidian “Wild Man of Hambledon” Chapman has pushed Sam O’Halloran off the top spot. It’s still very tight at the top - only 8 points separate the top 3 teams (Jack Lavous currently sitting in 3rd place).

Rhidian’s 11 points yesterday mean that he also now leads the players’ standings by 3 points from Shane, Bondy and Lewis, who share 2nd place.
