Farnham Cricket Club is one of the oldest
and most historic clubs in England. Founded in 1782, the club was distinguished
by being one of the very first fixtures for the famous Hambledon side back in
the 18th century. Since those heady days Farnham has survived to remain one of
the best-known clubs in Surrey and boasts a former England player - Graham
Thorpe - amongst its ex-players.
Despite being based in a town, Farnham
Cricket Club manages to retain some traditional appeal, being based on the
border of Surrey and Hampshire at a charming site on Folly hill, adjacent to
Farnham Castle. The club also makes use of a second ground, in the nearby
village of Crondall.
The club currently runs 3 Saturday men's
sides and 1 Sunday team alongside having a thriving youth section. The 1st, 2nd
and Academy (3rd) XI all play cricket in the TravelBag Surrey Championship
Here at Farnham we pride ourselves on being
a competitive, yet friendly family club and new members are always welcome. Why
not come down and visit us during the season to enjoy the cricket and the
atmosphere at this unique club!
