Colwall Cricket Club the Number One Place in Herefordshire to Play Cricket
Please note that we now use our own website
- www.colwallcc.org.uk for all our electronic news. We will use the
play cricket site to hold our scores.
Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy Colwall Cricket Club which is situated beneath the foot of the Malvern Hills, with the cricket ground looking out to the rolling Herefordshire countryside. It has been voted one of the prettiest cricket grounds in England. The club maintains two adjacent pitches to the highest standards thanks to a body of dedicated ground staff and volunteers.
Colwall CC is a family and community orientated club which prides itself on the excellence of its facilities and its continuing development as a leading club. New members and visitors - playing or social are always welcome.
Colwall runs three adult teams in the Worcestershire Cricket League, Both the 1st and 2nd Teams play in their respective First Divisions which is a good standard of cricket plus a 3rd team has just been entered into the League this year. We also have a team in the Herefordshire Saturday League, a Sunday Team playing friendly matches. We take part in the National Village Knockout Cup every year. We are proud to have a women's and girls’ team. There is a thriving Junior Section for boys and girls of all ages with teams playing in the Herefordshire & Worcestershire youth leagues. An increasing number of Colwall juniors have been selected to play in regional and county teams.
A large number of non-playing members enjoy watching the cricket and a drink from the bar in the late evening sunshine which bathes the ground. Colwall in the summer is a traditional English cricket ground in all its glory. The club also encourages members to contribute by volunteering for an official post or ad hoc projects.
