Past memories

With a proud history, we are the longest established cricket club in Tonbridge.
Our secluded ground is large compared to many and, coupled with our modern pavilion, offers superb facilities to club members and visitors alike.
There are few finer places to enjoy the final stages of a cricket match than at our ground bathed in the early evening sunshine!
On Saturdays the club competes in the Kent Regional Cricket League, of an evening in the Greensand Evening League, on Sundays plays friendly matches under the banner of Tonbridge Exiles CC and now a junior section has just commenced playing in an Under 11's league

End of Season Work-Party
A thank you from the President

Tremendous effort and a bit like the Battle of Britain with so few achieving so much.

Through the efforts of a handful of players and non-players (plus Connie on teas briefly) the wicket was deep scarified, seeded, fertilised and one and half tons of top soil applied. The site screens dismantled and repaired, the covers dismantled and stored away, the changing rooms cleaned, good chairs stored away and the patio area cleaned and tidied up. Doesn't sound a lot does it, but we started at 9.30 and finished at 3.00pm

PS: sorry to see that many missed out on the League's presentation evening at
Sidcup CC after the great season we've had

Our Intrepid Groundstaff and the Retirement of Mike Wicks

Peter, Mike & Tom


Men At Work

Peter, Tom & Mike

These three musketeers (Mike Wicks, Peter French and Tom Pearce) have been responsible for preparing the Tonbridge cricket wickets (along with the late Ron Helyar) for many years.

Mike Wicks (in his 80th year) is now 'retiring' after looking after the new ground since Tonbridge CC moved from Bathfields to Poplar Meadow in 1984.
An amazing servant to the club who has also been bar manager throughout this time - 30 years of service, and many years prior to this at the old ground, he has been an ever present stalwart
(not to mention his record appearances for both Tonbridge CC and The Forty Club)


What an astonishing record - what a man!

From everyone at the club - a huge thank you for everything you have done over so many years Mike - you are a true legend!

Peter and Tom are looking forward to a flood of applications from members to help fill at least one of Mike's shoes!!!

  • 1st XI : Runners-up in the Kent Regional Cricket League Premier Division and therefore promoted to the Kent Cricket League Divison 5

Anyone interested in playing for Tonbridge CC should contact us , give us a call or simply come down to any of our matches at our Welland Road ground. Weather permitting there are matches every Saturday afternoon between the end of April and September.
