Wantage & Grove Cricket Club are always looking for new players, umpires, scorers and for social members who enjoy watching. If you think you can help, or want to come along and find out who we are and what we do, come along to a game or training session or drop us a line
. Cricket is a fun, traditional sport but with other distractions in life it’s getting harder to find new players. Please don’t be shy… come and have a go.
Our Saturday team plays in the OCA division 3. The team is looking to grow and continue their climb up the leagues.
Our Wednesday team plays in the Charles Hoile Downs division 3. A short T20 style format is used and players of all standards are welcome.
Our Sunday team, play friendlies against a number of local and touring sides. The focus on Sundays is the social side of cricket, encouraging all abilities. It’s a good way to learn and improve.
During the season training takes place every Thursday from 6pm at the club, doing a range of batting, bowling and fielding practices.
