Welcome to the website for Grantchester Cricket Club, formerly the Blue Ball Cricket Club and based in the inspirationally picturesque village of Grantchester, near Cambridge, England.
Here you can hopefully learn some more about the history of the club, the current and former players, our fixtures, results and match reports.
We’re a social cricket club, headquartered in the Blue Ball pub in Grantchester. At present we play a series of friendlies against like minded teams in the Cambridgeshire area, and of course our famous Tour fixture in Stiffkey, Norfolk. In fact the club used to be called the Blue Ball Cricket Club. However we’re now getting all serious, have incorporated ourselves into a legal entity and are busy at work converting a meadow by the river Cam in Grantchester meadows into our home ground.
Comments are open to all and I hope you find this resource useful. Feel free to get in contact over anything cricket related. If you’re interested in playing for the team, we’re always looking for eager new cricketers (talent optional but preferred). At the very least, if you find yourself in the beautiful village of Grantchester, please drop into the Blue Ball for a pint and a chat.
All posts are welcome. Best wishes, Grantchester Cricket Club.
