Background
The Baldons play old style village cricket. Apart from our annual participation in 'The Cricketer' sponsored 'National Village Knockout', we play friendly matches against other local villages and various touring teams. Particular attention is paid to producing the best tea in the land and although the pavilion cannot live up to this billing, it has recently been redecorated and plans are under way for a new one. The village green is a superb place to watch as well as play cricket and with The Seven Stars, only 100yds away, providing excellent hospitality it makes for a great Sunday afternoon.
Recruitment Drive
Like many Sunday teams the Baldons are very short of players and hence our need for new blood. We welcome all comers particularly those looking to play regularly. Subscriptions are 25 per annum for under 18's/unemployed and 50 per annum for those not falling into these categories. Match fees are 5 for the employed and 2.50 for others. Do not hesitate to contact the club secretary at the following address if you are interested in playing: secretary@baldonscricket.co.uk
Where are we? Approximately 5 miles due southeast of Oxford city centre.
