Grayshott Cricket Club welcomes new adult members and in 2017 will be offering FREE membership to new adult members. Whether you are new to the area, a dad with a child at the club looking to return to the game, or maybe thinking to change clubs, Grayshott is a family orientated cricket club offering a lot for cricketers of all abilities in a competitive village league without the need to travel long distances.
Grayshott with four adult teams has two grounds both boasting excellent facilities. An open to all club, Grayshott offers adult cricket to players in Grayshott and the surrounding area including Beacon Hill, Bordon, Headley Down, Lindford, Hindhead, Haslemere, Liphook and Whitehill.
The club now runs four adult Saturday teams on a Saturday afternoon in the I’Anson Cup Competition all playing competitive cricket plus a few Sunday XI playing friendly matches.
Our 1st and 2nd XI play at the Sportsfield in Grayshott, and our 3rd and 4th XIs play all their home games at Broxhead Common Cricket Ground, a lovely venue for recreational cricket. The season starts at the end of April finishing normally mid September with a mixture of fixtures between limited over and games where teams can still earn themselves a draw.
