The Hampshire Cricket Society was formed in Basingstoke in 1975. Its aim is to provide a forum, particularly in the winter months, for all those interested in cricket.

Between October and March there are six afternoon meetings held at Romsey Golf Club with a guest speaker. In December the Society holds its Annual Christmas Lunch.

The Society’s Patrons are Shaun Udal, James Tomlinson and Kevan James. Members come from all over Hampshire and beyond eg Australia, Hong Kong, etc.

The Society’s policy is to invite speakers from all areas of cricket including players, umpires, authors, administrators, statisticians and others. Recent speakers include Roger Knight, Paul Farbrace, Adam Carty and Georgia Adams, John Barclay, David Woodhuse, Bill Athey, Mark Church, John Emburey, Richard Ellison, Ian “Gunner” Gould, etc 

An informative newsletter is produced regularly and emailed to members.

If you are interested in cricket, come and join other cricket enthusiasts to brighten up your winter months.
