  • The speaker at our next meeting on WEDNESDAY 7 FEBRUARY 2018 at TEST VALLEY GOLF CLUB (2pm) will be KEN BURNEY who will be talking about WALLY HAMMOND whom many consider to be on a par with Sir Jack Hobbs as England’s greatest ever batsman. Stories of Hammond’s prowess as a cricketer – he was also perhaps the finest of all slip fielders, as well as a formidable, though reluctant, fast medium bowler – are legion.

    The club house will be open and serving meals (sandwiches or bar menu) from 12 noon. If you wish to partake of a meal beforehand it would help if you would contact Susanne to let her know (Tel: 01489 877200 Email: Chairman@HantsCricSoc.org.uk) so she can inform the club of approximate numbers.
