The place to play
NPL Cricket Club is a fully-inclusive club that plays in beautiful, spacious grounds and offers:
- competitive cricket matches for male players
- softball cricket for women
- colts cricket from 5 years upwards for both boys and girls
- regular coaching sessions for all.
Many members have commented on the quality of our two playing squares, which are carefully prepared by club grounds staff.
Away from the match pitches, we have a 2-lane net facility and an artificial wicket which are regularly used. The club has also invested in a bowling machine and mobile net for grass wicket practice and coaching.
We have 3 mens sides in the Thames Valley League that play matches from early May to September. We are always keen to see new players of all abilities and ages from young bucks to seasoned lags.
This year we have introduced softball cricket for women players, taking place at the same time as colts training. Come down to the club to try out this fun, active version of the game.
We currently run sides all the way from under 9s up to under 17s level in both Middlesex and Surrey leagues. For even younger cricketing fans, our 5-8 year olds participate in the ECB’s AllStars initiative.
Practise sessions and courses
Players of all ages benefit from regular practise training sessions that run until July 23rd.

Over the easter, summer half-term and summer holidays we run cricket camps for all age groups. These are organised by our Senior Coach, Joe Lamb as part of our cricket academy.
Moving on up
We aim to support colts transition to senior cricket and we run a popular academy that provides dedicated skills coaching and arranges mixed sides of colts and senior players playing in friendly fixtures.
