Buckworth Cricket Club Welcomes You
Your community hub in Buckworth #theclub
The Cricket Club in Buckworth sits in the centre of the village both physically and in the hearts and minds of all those who come along. Over the years it has been host to many village activities and has provided a friendly place for its members to gather for a drink or two....
The Club opens regularly for Friday Night drinks, bingo, 'Food with Friends' and a number of clubs providing a much needed venue for the community. The club is also available to hire for private parties, meetings and training events and is used as the village Polling Station.
It has a fully licensed bar with inside and outside seating available. There is a pool table, a darts board and a skittles table for all to use to add to the fun.
The Clubhouse was originally set up as the home of the Buckworth Cricket Club when the local pub closed. George Brown, a Buckworth farmer, provided the building next to the Manor House in Church Road together with the necessary materials to enable it to be turned into a clubhouse. The Clubhouse was opened in 1958 after five months of hard work.
Buckworth Cricket Club’s last cricket match was played in 1984, with the team’s demise following the creation of the Alconbury Sports and Social Club which was able to offer a level playing field free of grazing livestock! The club however continues to thrive providing a real community hub to this beautiful village.
