“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!

Fantasy League: 1 week to go!

Posted by Seb Duggan on

With the league season drawing to a close — just the one 1st XI fixture to play — it’s still all to play for in the Fantasy League…

While Lecky looks like he may have an unassailable lead at the top of the table, the other prize places are still up for contention, with a handful of teams all contesting the top three.

A reminder also that if you haven’t yet used up all your 4 free transfers, this week might be a good time to adjust the balance of your team!

(There are still a few teams whose £5 entrance fee I haven't yet received, so expect me to be chasing those up…)

Nearly half-way through the season, and the top of the table is currently a Le-Clercq 1-2-3. With the best-performing team of the week, Mark maintains his number 1 spot, while Lewis leapfrogs Spencer into 2nd place. Still a long way to go, though...

Top performance of the week was from Pete Grennan, with 67 runs and two catches, closely followed by Garin Chapman, who posted his club best of 4-21 with the ball. Third this week was Turns, with a typically miserly 2 wicket spell and 25 with the bat.

Posted by Seb Duggan on

The league season is now under way, which means that the first round of Fantasy Cricket results are in!

An early lead has been taken by birthday boy Spencer, closely followed by defending champion Kevin. The rest of the field trail some way behind, but with the new scoring system things can change very quickly!

Top performers of the week were Rocky and Tim, with 88 points each, with Siby and Kevin close behind on 87. Roops and Rips have also demonstrated that economy and maidens for bowlers can add significantly to any points gained from wickets...
