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 email@example.com.
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.
