Welcome to the play
cricket website of Blagdon Cricket Club. Whether you are just surfing the net,
or are newly arrived to the village and looking for a club to join, we are sure

Blagdon has a long history going back to 1888 and is one of the oldest established cricket clubs with one of the most beautiful grounds in the North Somerset area. We are situated in the heart of the village being a vital village institution serving the community and drawing support from the surrounding area. We are also a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) and are ECB Clubmark Accredited having been re-assessed and approved in 2012
We field three senior sides and play the game to a high standard, our first team being in Division 1 and our Seconds in Division 7 of the B&D League. We also field a Sunday senior team in the North Somerset League 1.
We have a strong and well established youth cricket policy fielding teams at under 11, 13, and under 15 age groups, who compete in local league and knock out cup competitions. We have various junior coaching sessions held during the season which are open to both boys and girls. ECB Level 1, 2 and 3 Accredited coaches instruct youngsters in the basics of the game and prepare older children for eventual entry into the senior sides.
As part of our ongoing commitment, we have had the square completely re-laid in 2012 and will have state of the art ECB standard all weather nets available for 2014 onwards (use restrictions apply)

of the ground offers the perfect vantage point for watching cricket, while the
shelter of the dew pond provides the ideal spot to catch the evening sunshine.
