Farnham Cricket Club is one of the oldest and most historic clubs in England. Founded in 1782, the club was distinguished by being one of the very first fixtures for the famous Hambledon side back in the 18th century. Since those heady days Farnham has survived to remain one of the best-known clubs in Surrey and boasts two former England players – Graham Thorpe and the superbly named Julius Caesar.
Despite being based in a town, Farnham Cricket Club manages to retain a traditional appeal, being based on the border of Surrey and Hampshire at a charming site on Folly Hill, with the walls and moat of Farnham Castle abutting the south-western boundary and the historic deer park abutting the north-eastern boundary.
The club currently runs 3 Saturday men’s sides alongside having a thriving colts section. The 1st, 2nd and Academy (3rd) XI all play cricket in the TravelBag Surrey Championship, currently the 1st XI in the First division and the 2nd XI in the Premiership of their respective leagues.
Here at Farnham CC we pride ourselves on being a competitive, yet friendly family club and new members are always welcome.
