Bledlow Ridge Cricket Club’s roaring success

Round & About


Summer is finally here, which means it’s cricket season. John Rolfe tells us about Bledlow Ridge Cricket Club and invites seniors, umpires & scorers to join the club.

Bledlow Ridge CC is a village cricket club with a big club mentality. We’re based at ‘Meadow Styles’ with two distinctive landmarks.

There are two Senior Saturday Xls playing in the Cherwell Cricket League, Sunday friendlies and a thriving Junior section for age five and up, who practise on Friday nights and play matches during term-time.

After the summer term ends, we play T20 friendlies which keeps the Friday night bar and barbecue busy until September. We’ve just invested in a ‘Frogbox’ system to enable us to show matches in real time.

The senior club is always looking for new playing members, and volunteer umpires and scorers. The ground sits in stunning countryside and has earned a reputation both for its beautiful location and for the quality of its playing surface. Visitors to ‘Meadow styles’ as it’s known, will also see two larger-than-life sized wood carvings hewn from the trunks of two fallen trees. Spectators are welcome at all matches and Martina runs The Clubhouse CafĂ© from our pavilion on Thursdays, Friday and Saturdays.

Senior net practice is on Wednesday evenings from 6pm. New players are welcome to just turn up, or you can call John Rolfe on 07873 516568 first for more info. There is plenty of information online at Bledlow Ridge Cricket Club
