Welcome to The Lee Cricket Club, and one of the most beautiful village cricket grounds in England.
The first game of cricket was played on The Lee Manor Park Ground in 1875, and only a new pavilion and the maturing of several oak trees dotted around the boundaries have changed the outlook since then. The cows in the neighbouring field often come right up to the boundary fence to watch the matches!
After over a century of playing friendly fixtures, in 1999 the club decided to play league cricket for the first time and joined the Kookaburra Mid Bucks Village League. We rapidly gained promotion from Division 2 to Division 1 and then played several seasons in the Premier league.
The club continues to combine Saturday league cricket with traditional friendly games played on Sundays. In 2014 we joined the Morrant Chiltern League and the First XI play in Division 3 and the Second XI in Division 4.
In addition to senior cricket, the club also runs a hugely successful colts section, with over 120 members attending either Friday night softball training or Saturday morning hardball sessions. This season we have colts teams at Under 9, Under 10, Under 12, and Under 14 and Under 15 age groups, as well as an Under 19 Twenty:20 team. Several of our colts are also representing the county.

Wormsley has been described as the most beautiful cricket ground in England and anyone who has watched or played cricket there will never forget the experience.
Sir Paul Getty was a devotee of all things English, especially the most English of games, cricket.
His vision and creation of an Arcadian cricket ground at Wormsley was a source of joy to him and his family. Events at Wormsley really are "Quintessentially English", and the experience is one to cherish.
The ground and facilities can be tailored to host your own event, or visit our 'events calendar' page to book yourself tickets to one of the public events. There are numerous options to make your visit truly memorable. We look forward to seeing you at Wormsley, or please contact us to discuss your specific requirements in greater detail.
