“The Ickwell Oak”

This magnificent 260 year old tree stands in the outfield at Ickwell Green.  It is the “logo” for Ickwell Cricket Club.  No matter where the ball hits you score just four runs.  To earn six runs you have to hit it over the top – a feat rarely achieved!

We play our games on one of the most picturesque village greens in the country.  Cricket has played here since 1839 and 2014 will be the 175th anniversary. A magnificent 250 year old oak tree stands in the outfield and has been adopted as a “logo” by the club.  We run 1st and 2nd XI’s who play their Saturday cricket in Divisions 1 and 4 of the Huntingdonshire Cricket League and on Sundays we are Divisions 1 and 3 of the Bedfordshire County League.   We play in a variety of local midweek cup competitions including the Bedford Hospital Cup and the East Beds Charity Heritage Cup and Senior Shield. During the winter we have two sides in the Bedfordshire Indoor Cricket League.

Ickwell Cricket Club has always been involved in developing young cricketers and we offer youth coaching on Sunday mornings throughout the season.  We run under-14 and under-16 youth teams in the Bedfordshire Youth Leagues and an under-12 side will play friendly games. This is all part of a club policy to encourage young players to play cricket.

The pavilion is open every evening of the year and with a well stocked bar open, the envy of many visiting clubs.  It acts  a social centre for the local villages and more details can be found on our website  We are a friendly club and are always keen to welcome new players. So if you would like to play challenging, competitive cricket please or just enjoy a sociable game please contact any of the team captains or the cricket secretary via the links on the About Us page.
