Getting back into cricket?

If you played cricket at school and hankering after spending your summer weekends in beautiful, rural Hertfordshire locations how about playing cricket for Ivanhoe Cricket Club? They are a relaxed club who play a full fixture list of forty-over friendly non-league cricket of a good standard and have a popular annual tour usually at the end of June.
Ivanhoe CC was founded in 1916 and named Ivanhoe after Sir Walter Scott’s novel. It’s believed that one of the founding members, Charles Scott, was a descendent of the writer. He played football and captained the cricket team from the early 1920s until 1959 and remained involved with the club until the mid-1970’s.
The Club has moved about  a bit: in 1957 they  moved to Centenary Park in Stanmore, until the cricket section moved to Shendish manor in Apsley in 1985, when that was turned into a golf course, they moved to Oakland’s college, St. Albans in 1994. Now they play out of the Royal Veterinary College, near Potters Bar, where there’s ample parking, showers and cheap beer at the Students Union bar! Members come from all over the Hertfordshire and Northwest London area to join in.
Remember yourself stepping out to open the batting or fancy yourself as a bit of a bowler why not get involved? For more info take a look at their ‘events‘ page.
