About Hardingham Cricket Club

General

Hardingham Village Green

A village cricket club in the heart of rural Norfolk, our 1st team play on Saturdays in Division 2 South of the Norfolk League and our Second Team plays in Division 4 South of the Norfolk League. We play a number of Sunday friendlies throughout the Summer and also enter a number of midweek 20-20 competitions and play this form of cricket throughout the summer.

As a club, we endeavour to give each member as much or as little cricket as they wish to have. During the season, we hold outdoor net practice on Friday evenings at the ground and during the winter, hold regular indoor net practices at Taverham Prep School. However, there’s much more to Hardingham than just the cricket. We're a small, friendly village club. We welcome supporters, visitors and guests to enjoy proper village cricket in great surroundings.

If you’re interested in what you’ve read about here, please have a look around the website to get a feel for what we’re about as a club. We are always on the lookout for potential new players of any standard, as well as social members who want nothing more at the weekend than to watch some cricket with a drink in their hand. Contact forms are available so if you’re interested, then please get in touch.

Facilities

  • Sightscreens at both ends of the square
  • A large and mostly even outfield
  • A very sound financial situation coming about mainly through our Licensed Bar
