About us

From Ken Mannering, Club Chair

Welcome to
Cumnor Cricket Club

Cumnor Cricket Club is home to the ‘Cumnor Bears’ senior squads and a thriving youth programme.

Following the outstanding performance of our 1st team in 2021, we begin exciting times in our first season playing in the Home Counties Premier Cricket League. Our 2nd and 3rd XIs will compete in the Cherwell League divisions 3B and 6B respectively and in addition we have a midweek T20 side and a series of Sunday afternoon friendlies.

Our youth programme caters for all age groups with All Stars (5-8s) and Dynamos (8-9s) playing with a softball and older years (10-17s) with hardball, all of which offer the opportunity to learn and play lots of cricket. We also offer incredibly popular summer holiday Academy weeks for 6-13 year olds, open to members and non-members. Our junior teams enjoy repeated success, and our most talented youngsters go on to the Oxfordshire Youth Player Pathway and represent their county.

We are very well organised, have good facilities and grounds and exemplary care and safety governance is in place to maintain our ECB Clubmark status.

In 2021 Cumnor Cricket Club celebrated 125 years since its formal beginnings with what became the 2021 summer event of the season. After the very best season in our club history, we look forward to a full season of cricket whilst of course following the ECB’s and HMG’s Covid secure guidelines.

If you and your family want to get fit, play cricket at any level, or simply enjoy a drink in our clubhouse or a wander around the grounds – then join us either as a playing member or a club supporter – the Cumnor Bears are sure to give you a big welcome.
