Blunham Cricket Club.
Blunham, Bedfordshire, England.
The President, Chairman and club members welcome you to the Blunham Cricket Club website.
Blunham fields 6 full senior teams throughout most weekends as well as a thriving youth section for both boys and girls. With two home grounds; the Blunham Playing Fields in Blunham and at the Roxton
Playing Fields in the neighbouring village of Roxton. For the 2017 season, on Saturdays, the first team will play in the Tucker & Gardner Premier League 1, the second and third team play in the Huntingdonshire
county cricket league, divisions three and four, whilst the fourths play in the more local Bedfordshire invitational league. On Sundays, we field sides in the Premier division and Second division of the
Bedfordshire County Cricket League. Midweek, we compete in various different county cups and we also field two teams in the Bedford & District midweek league and youth sides in the Bedfordshire youth leagues.
During the winter months we also have three sides competing in the indoor league.
Blunham Cricket Club has seen a period of rapid growth in the last ten years, and prides itself on developing its own players through its massive youth structure. Blunham is only a small village,
but what we lack in size we make up for in passion, it is rare to drive through the village during the summer without seeing someone associated with the club.
We are a very sociable club, we undertake an annual tour each year to a new county and this year we are making it a country and Amsterdam will be visited by "The Phoenix". New players are very much welcome.
It is a great club to play for in a great setting. Blunham Cricket Club's playing achievements during the 2015 season were tremendous, with the winning, once again, of the East Beds Shield, retaining
our hold on the Heritage Cup and winning the Arthur Butcher Shield,
beating Potton in the final at Ickwell.
Blunham famously regained the Guinness world record for the longest ever continuous (That means day and night ...!) game of cricket in August 2010, achieving 105 hours. Please click on "The RECORD PAGES"
