We play on one of the most picturesque village greens in the country. Cricket has been played here since 1839. A magnificent 260 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 2 and 4 of the Huntingdonshire County Cricket League and on Sundays we are in Divisions 1 and 4 of the Bedfordshire County League. We also play in local midweek cup competitions namely East Beds Charity Heritage Cup and Senior Shield and East Beds under-18 competition. During the winter we have two sides in the Bedfordshire Indoor Cricket League.
Ickwell Cricket Club offers youth coaching on Friday evenings from 6.00 to 7.30pm from 21st April to 28th July. We run under-9, under-13 and under-15 youth teams in the Bedfordshire Youth League. This is all part of a club policy to encourage young players to play cricket.
The club hosts many Bedfordshire County matches, cup finals and charity games. It is a popular venue for all who love playing and watching cricket. The pavilion is open every evening of the year with a well stocked bar . We act as a social centre for the local villages and have a pool table darts, crib teams, petanque and a golf section and run many social functions. There is something for all the family. Ickwell is a friendly club and we are always keen to welcome new players. So if you would like to play challenging, competitive cricket or just enjoy a sociable game please contact any of the club officials via the links on the About Us page. We will be pleased to welcome you to the club.
“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!
