Adult Cricket

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.

Sunday Cricket
