Welcome to the Cricket Section

Welcome to Wickham Park Cricket Club


We are a small, lively, and very friendly Cricket Club ideally situated between the hamlets of West Wickham and Hayes in the London Borough of Bromley. We have a full programme of matches serving the local community and the Cricket Club.

We currently run two Saturday League teams – our first team plays in Division 1 Met/West and the second team plays in Division 4 Met/West.

On Sundays, there is one team which plays friendly fixtures, mostly at home and it is a good opportunity for families and friends to come down and support.

Midweek, the ground is used regularly by the XL Club, Kent Over 60s and the Bromley Under 11s as well as by our Wickham Park midweek team. We have also joined the DynoT20 league playing 20 overs against local sides and will be playing indoor cricket during the winter months.

There is an active clubhouse with fully licensed bar and hall.



A note on recent events


To all Members and Parents,

The last few days have brought the subject of discrimination in cricket to the front pages of the newspapers.

The WPCC Committee wanted to reiterate that discrimination of any kind has no place in cricket anywhere, and certainly not at Wickham Park Cricket Club.

In that respect we wanted to draw to your attention a couple of things.

Firstly, Kent have issued their own statement on discrimination in cricket, which we are wholeheartedly behind. It includes information on the Independent Commission for Equity in Cricket (ICEC), which has released a Call for Evidence in order to hear people’s experiences of discrimination and inclusion in cricket.https://www.kentcricket.co.uk/news/club-statement-09-11-21/

Secondly, as a committee we would love to hear views from any of our members, as to how we could make WPCC an even more inclusive place to play cricket.

Andy Bowles has offered to be the conduit for any thoughts/views into the committee on this, so please do get in touch with him or our Safeguarding Officer Lynne Hayward ( wayward.five@btinternet.com ) at any time, and people should feel encouraged to do so.

Details regarding winter nets, the Legends Evening and the Race Night will be coming shortly.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Nicholas Dumper
