Welcome to Crossbats Cricket Club
We play our first few games at Marble Hill in St Margarets near Twickenham.
We are looking for new players for the 2013 season. Fancy a game?
We play each Saturday, friendly competitive cricket.
Young or old, all welcome. Not played since school? No problem!
Along with the promise to loose weight here are a few others made by some of the team......
SIR DAVID: "I am never touring again." (spoken shortly before the France and Portugal tours)
"I don't eat tea" (Spoken when the team had to take it in turns
to make it)
Want to see some stuff from tours gone by........ look in pictures
Crossbats Cricket Club has joined forces with Hampton Wick Royal Cricket Club. In partnership with HWRCC we can now offer a wider variety of opportunities to club members with league cricket and colts. Crossbats will continue to play "friendly" games with a fixture list built up over the last 15 years.
So if you are young or old and want to play social cricket and perhaps have not played cricket since school we want you! Just fill in the sign up form and we will be in touch.
Nothing in club cricket is as controversial as the LBW law. Some would say pub cricket has a different set of laws depending on the circumstance. Disgruntled lower order batsmen are infamous for raising the finger thus insuring a bat later on in the innings. Sadly, if you are a good umpire you will face serious heckling. One feels there is an unwritten law. Back foot, ankle height, middle stump is OUT and only if it's not the first ball. For those who want to know how it should be done click here but don't think if you are any good it means anything.
