Compton and Chandlers Ford Cricket Club - New Players

Welcome to Compton and Chandler's Ford Cricket Club.

Our club has 4 Saturday teams playing at various levels in the Hampshire League pyramid.  The First XI will be aiming for promotion back up to County 1, the Second's and Thirds will be looking to build on their strong recent seasons when playing in County 4 and Regional 2, whilst the Fourth team will be hoping to continue to improve in the restructured Regional 3.  As well as this, we have a Sunday XI who play Friendly matches throughout the summer, a league winning Midweek Team and a thriving Colts set-up for Junior players (click here for more information on the Colts).

We therefore believe that we have a standard to accommodate the vast majority of cricketers and encourage anyone who is looking to get back into the game or after a new challenge to join our sociable and friendly cricket club.

Based in Shepherds Lane, Compton, we feel very lucky with the facilities at our disposal which the club members, along with the Compton and Shawford Sports Club, work hard to upkeep and improve.  These include: a scenic and pleasant playing area with an excellent wicket, 3 x all-weather nets for practice,  a pavilion with ample changing facilities, well-stocked licensed bar and outdoor barbecue area. 

Club practice sessions are up at Compton from 6:15pm - 8:15pm (approx.) every Thursday during the season (May-August).  Some players also opt for a more informal session on Tuesday evenings at a similar time.  Throughout the winter (Jan-April) we use Thornden School in Chandler's Ford from 11pm-12:30pm for indoor nets (£3 for adults, £2 for juniors / concessions).

All in all, we are a large community of players who generally take our cricket seriously and play to win.  However our main motivation for playing is to enjoy ourselves and fortunately the facilities, personnel and social atmosphere at C&CF CC make this extremely easy to do, regardless of the results on the pitch!

If you would like to come and see what the club has to offer you, please fill in the contact form and we will ensure there will be someone to meet and greet you at one of our net sessions or games.
