Botany Bay Cricket Club
Club Mark Logo
Botany Bay Cricket Club, located in the Green Belt to the north of London, was founded in 1899 as a village cricket team supported by the local gentry and landowner. The Club fielded a single team with fathers and sons of the local families playing side by side for more than half a century against local clubs. There were few significant achievements and low scoring matches were the norm. It took until 1937 for the first century to be scored at the ground, even then by a visitor. Post Second World War, led by the ever enthusiastic Alec Callendar, the Club rebuilt itself building a pavilion with bar, growing to 2 then 3 sides, acquiring a second ground adjacent to the clubhouse, became a founder member of the Middlesex Cricketers League and growing in stature in the Middlesex and Hertfordshire cricket scene.
Today the Club fields 3 sides in the Saracens Hertfordshire Cricket League.
Other sections of the club include:
We are also a committed supporter of live music hosting The Bay Jazz Club on Tuesdays for the traditional Jazz enthusiast and the Googlies Jazz Supper Club on a Thursday evening for music of a more modern era. There are also monthly Big Boppa Rock n Roll and Big Band events during the winter months.
“Botany Bay Cricket Club – A Hundred Years of Village Cricket” by Steve Collins is available in paperback from the Club.
