Get Ready for excellent set of Cricket camps this Summer at Sonning Cricket Club, headed up by England Internatinal Cricketer AFTAB HABIB!

All, I have been contacted today by Reading Cricket Club as some people purporting to be members of Sonning CC have been using their net facility without authority.

Similar to ourselves the nets are for the use of club members only.

Our nets are now available for your use and outdoor adult practice will commence 4th May at 1830.

In addition, our newly sourced dual full lane net facility will be built very soon; and I must express the gratitude of the entire membership to Nick Ray who has worked tirelessly to bring the project to fruition.




At the recent AGM it was agreed that the annual subscriptions should not change for the 2017 season. Please would you make contact with either Stephen Rayfield, Treasurer, or myself to obtain club bank details for direct payment, or alternatively, we can accept cheque or cash at pre-season nets commencing 7th March at Reading Blue Coat School.

Adult: £80 , Junior/Student (playing adult cricket): £40

Deadline for payment: 30 April 2017.

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 2017 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.

Having won promotion last season the Saturday 1st team will be playing in Division 2 of the Thames Valley League, the 2nd's in Division 6 and the 3rd's in Division 8.  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 7th and run through and include April 25th at Blue Coat School 6.30 p.m. to 7.45 p.m..  The first outdoor net session (subject to the weather) will start on Thursday 4th 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 Le Marquand 07748520723 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.
