Banstead Cricket Club is one of the senior cricket clubs in Surrey – over the years they have produced many fine cricketers and have always enjoyed a high level of the game at the club. 

But where did it all start? OK  - 175 years ago in 1842 – in fact the first recorded game was in July 1842. This and many more facts are being shared by the club in their newsletters – and much of the information comes from John Wilcox’s book – ‘Playing on the Green’.

See the attached DOWNLOAD

The club still has copies of John's book about the history of the club, "Playing on the Green". If you would like a copy in exchange for a small contribution to club funds please contact Ray Watson bccmemsec@gmail.com or Neil Bowman nbdbowman@googlemail.com



Want to share your memories from the club – then just email them they would love to hear from you.



To celebrate the anniversary Banstead Cricket Club will be holding lots of events – including the Summer Ball, Annual Cricket Week and the superb England Master vs Banstead Match
