Chorleywood Cricket Club have been playing on The Common for nearly 200
years and, for passers-by in the summer months, the sight of a cricket match in
progress as they drive or walk through Chorleywood is always a memorable
landmark. The club is a thriving local success story that has had a glorious
history, a successful present and, thanks to a dedicated membership who want
to ensure the legacy of the club for years to come, exciting plans for the future.

|Honorary members and Friends - Lunch New!
Posted by John Chadwick on 3rd Oct 16
|The annual Honorary members and Friends of the Club lunch was held yesterday, 2nd October. Guest of honour was Life Member and octogenarian Rex Vine who played for the Club and Hertfordshire as a superb left arm spinner from the 1950s and into the 1970s. He looked after the square, preparing wickets for Saturday and Sunday cricket throughout the season. It was great for the older members to meet up with him again. Denys Downing our President spoke of our pleasure in seeing him again and thanked the caterers from the Rose and Crown for providing an excellent lunch for all to enjoy.

|A bizarre but brilliant day to behold - New!
Posted by Jonathan Rice on 1st Sep 16
|As the title suggests, our teams really pulled their fingers out when deciding their fancy dress themes this year. 8 teams took part including a firm of Italian plumbers, a set of farmers and their sheep, some jockeys and a bunch of bananas accompanied by incredibly protective Gorillas!
The day got off to a bit of a damp start with intermittent (and thankfully short) showers but this did not deter our competitors. Only twice was play stopped and some great cricket was played by all. Luckily the sunshine returned for the remainder of the days play and the BBQ and bar was well attended throughout.
With the Bananas and Gorillas rushing off to a wedding of some sort it meant a bowl-off ensued for which team would take the extra spot in the semi-finals. After one of the teams was disqualified for overly aggressive captaincy, the semi-finals were contested between the farmers, plumbers, jockeys and some stray kiwis.
With the night drawing in, the plumbers eventually came out on top and were crowned CHAMPIONS! With Karaoke being the source of entertainment for the evening crowd, 'The Shack' was given a good rocking until the early hours. Notable performances came from Vikash 'Punjabi MC' Patel and Stevie 'Wonder' Ord - not a dry eye in the house for his renditions I can assure you!
Many thanks go to everyone who made the day a success and we all look forward to Club Day 2017 (which is Sunday 27th August for those of you who like to plan ahead!).
