Enville Cricket Club

Enville Cricket Club

The earliest recording of cricket being played at Enville was a match in July 1821, to celebrate the Coronation of George 1V. The ground of then is the same ground that is played on today. George Harry Grey, Earl of Stamford and Warrington was mainly responsible for the development of the ground to such a high standard that in the 1850’s England teams were entertained by his Lordship on an annual basis that attracted large crowds over the 3 days who not only enjoyed the cricket but were entertained at night with lavish firework displays.

Cricket has continued at Enville only stopping during the second world war. This season 4 teams have played on a Saturday in the Worcestershire County League with the 3rd and 4th teams playing their home fixtures at the KSCA. A senior team plays on a Wednesday in the Wilden Industrial Estates Midweek League and a Sunday team in the Worcester Sunday Border League

The Club run a comprehensive youth programme commencing with the All Stars which is for 5 to 8 years of age on a Friday evening and they can then progress to youth age level groups from 9 to 19. Outdoor practice at Enville for youth up to the age of 14 is on a Friday evening and the older age groups on a Tuesday when the senior squads also practice. Winter nets are organised at Kinver High School
