New Members Welcome

Sonning Cricket Club is located in the picturesque village of Sonning on Thames, just to the east of Reading, in Berkshire.  

We are a very successful and popular village cricket club. In the 2018 season we will have 3 Saturday teams playing in the Thames Valley League, 2 Sunday teams playing friendlies against clubs scattered across Berks, South Bucks, South Oxon and Surrey and a midweek team.  All fixtures will be published on the website in December/January.

The Saturday 1st team will be playing in Division 3b of the Thames Valley League, the 2nd team will be in Division 5b after winning Division 6b in 2017 and the 3rd's in Division 8a.  Sunday fixtures run from late April to mid September, with 5 teams playing each weekend and mid-week fixtures we cater for cricket of all standards.  In addition there are a number of "one-off" fixtures the likelihood of a 2/3 day tour to Cardiff late July. The 1st and 2nd teams play at our home ground with its traditional cricket pavilion and bar at King George Playing Fields on Pound Lane. Our 3rd team play home fixtures at Blue Coat School.  Both locations have excellent playing surfaces.


Weekly indoor nets commence Tuesday March 6th and run through and include April 24th at Blue Coat School 6.15 p.m. to 7.45 p.m. These sessions are at a cost of £5 per adult and £2.50 for a junior member.  The first outdoor net session (subject to the weather) will start on Thursday 3rd May at Pound Lane 6.30p.m. Thursday evening is also the club's midweek "clubnight" so if you are not up to the physical exertion of nets come along and limber up over a beer.....Wildthing will be delighted to see you!  For further  information on senior cricket, please contact Dan Anderson 07909 442814 or email

Our junior membership with roughly 150 boys and girls continues to go from strength to strength following their inaugural season in 2008. In 2012 the club was awarded ECB Clubmark status. In 2017 we will be entering teams into the Berkshire Youth League at age levels U9's, U11's, U13's and U15's as well as non-competitive cricket sessions for the U7's. Training is held for all age groups on a weekly basis at our home ground King George's Field and at Reading Blue Coat School. For further information on junior cricket at Sonning, please visit our juniors page.

We are a very friendly and sociable club run by volunteers, new players who wish to get involved and support a traditional cricket club are always welcome.
