Local Rural Cricket Clubs

March . 2016

Wiltshire, Dorset & Hampshire Cricket Clubs

The thwack of leather against willow followed by a polite round of clapping must surely be an integral part of village life on a summer’s day. A game of mysterious rules, strange traditions and bizarre terminology for many, cricket is an essential part of living in the country even if they don’t play or even understand what it’s all about.

Cricket is a very sociable sport and still largely played in a gentlemanly and friendly spirit between the two teams and has the ability to unite different generations and backgrounds. The traditions and rituals are an essential part of the game including the preparation of the wicket, changing room banter, toss, the fielding team clapping in each new batsman, gargantuan teas, dozing in a deck chair at cow corner and post-match beer. It is also the subject of many a conversation in the village pub over the winter months.

Integrating into the local rural community

Most clubs are very welcoming of new members irrespective of age or ability. If you are looking for properties to sell or rent in Wiltshire, Dorset, Somerset or Hampshire and are interested in cricket, get in touch with us and we may be able point you in the right direction.

For anyone interested in reading more about the joys of village cricket or wanting to grasp the concepts of the game and its language, Si White, a friend of Mark’s and fellow team mate at Damerham Cricket Club, has written an excellent, information and funny book called The Effing C Word. Mark even gets a couple of mentions in it!
