About Our Club
High Wycombe Cricket Club is situated on London Road in High Wycombe, South Buckinghamshire. We have been established since 1823 and today we are a thriving club that fields five men's league sides and colts ranging from minis (under 5/6) through to U19. We are fortunate to have a very nice ground situated in the heart of the town and community, providing cricket for all. Our membership reflects the diversity of the local area and we are an integral part of the community providing coaching and facilities to local schools.
We are also very fortunate to have a strong junior membership and are getting close to 200 junior members. We cater for boys and girls with teams playing in the competitive Bucks Cricket Board competitions. Our colts sides are regularly at the forefront of the leagues and cups in these competitions and recently our U13 side won the ECB National Cup.
The men’s senior section has always been healthy providing five competitive sides with the 1st XI competing in the Home Counties Premier League Div. 1 and having won the Home Counties Premier League Championship a record seven times. The 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th teams feature within the Thames Valley Cricket League.
We also work closely within the community and provide after-school cricket coaching at several schools within the area. This is part of our own initiative which started in 2007 called the ‘Cricket in the Community Scheme’. Along with this we coach at disability schools in the area including Alfriston School. Part of this very successful venture is that now, between ourselves and two other clubs in Bucks, we have driven disability cricket forward and we are looking to create High Wycombe Cricket Club’s first disability side creating yet another new section of the club.
We are always very happy to support the Bucks Cricket Board and many others in any way we can. We have over the years held Kwik Cricket tournaments hosting many schools, we are happy to provide the ground for local district cricket for Under 12s and 14s. Bucks girls and boys matches have been at the ground over the years along with Bucks Academy matches, Bucks senior men’s, the MCC, MCC Young Cricketers, the England physical disability side and learning difficulty side have had a fixture here over the last two years. The local Royal Grammar School and Highcrest Community School has also used the ground for various matches along with the Bucks New University.
Not only is our playing surface one of the best in Bucks and the country, but we also have state-of-the-art training facilities that include an astro-turf net and grass-net playing surface.
High Wycombe Cricket Club has always been known within the community for its jolly atmosphere and lively bar. Whether it be karaoke night, a civil drink with a friend or just enjoying the wide-ranging selection of beverages we have to offer, High Wycombe Cricket Club's social events are thriving.
We have held some of the biggest events in High Wycombe including our yearly Big Bash Music and Beer Festival, as well as featuring the Barbados International Side and their local community.
Boasting a large function room that serves practical purposes such as meetings and work events, but also allows for wedding receptions, birthday parties and much more, we know how to throw a great party.
2023 is our 200th year and we are holding a host of events across the year.
History of Our Ground
High Wycombe Cricket Club have their home ground at London Road in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. The first recorded match on the ground was in 1891, when High Wycombe played the House of Commons. The first Minor Counties Championship match held on the ground came in 1895 when Buckinghamshire played Bedfordshire.
From 1895 to 2001 the ground hosted 115 Minor Counties Championship matches, the last of which saw Buckinghamshire play Northumberland. Buckinghamshire returned to the ground in 2010 to play the first MCCA Knockout Trophy match held at the ground, against Wiltshire.
The ground has also held List-A matches. The first List-A match held on the ground was between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire in the 1970 Gillette Cup. A Minor Counties South team played Worcestershire in the 1979 Benson and Hedges Cup at London Road. The ground held two further List-A matches, the last of which saw Buckinghamshire play Somerset in the 1987 NatWest Trophy.
With membership and crowd attendances rising, we have ambitious plans to continue to develop the infrastructure at the club and grow our teams.
Naturally, we want to support our sponsors and build them in to our club on a strategic level — allowing all of our partners to benefit from our ever-improving facilities, expanding audience and our community involvement.
