Situated at the foot of the Chiltern Hills in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, our ground is within a few big hits of the historic Icknield Way, part of the Ridgeway, and the White Mark which appears on our crest.
We are blessed with fantastic facilities, which we work very hard to improve year on year.
Information For Visitors
We are easy to find and only two miles from J6 of the M40, situated on the right hand side just as you enter Watlington. Click here for map and directions.
We have ample parking in the car park and will utilise our large ground for overflow parking.
Dogs are welcome, but we respectfully ask owners to keep dogs on leads, keep to the perimeter of the Sports Ground and ensure they clean up all mess, bags and bins are available.
We have a fully licensed and very good value bar. Please do not bring your own alcohol with you as this may jeopardise our license, while depriving our club of much needed funds!
We have free Wi-Fi and the passcode is displayed in the pavilion.
Please read the details on how we are operating during the Covid-19 Pandemic here
Watlington Cricket Ground
Watlington Cricket Ground is regularly rated in the top 10% of grounds in the Oxfordshire Cricket Association, and has been given the privilege of hosting its cup finals, including allocation of the prestigious and historic Airey Cup in 2020.
We have also hosted County Women and Junior fixtures and our expansive setting makes it ideal for large crowds.
The square consists of 12 pitches, including practise and junior pitches, while the outfield is one of the largest in the county and perfectly shaped to provide a consistent boundary size.
Our Sports Pavilion boasts four changing rooms and umpire changing facilities. It is fully accessible and includes disabled toilets.
It has a fully licensed bar and is a great venue for our fantastic fundraising events, including Comedy and Quiz Nights.
It is used by our Aunt Sally, Darts and Pool teams, as well as Watlington Town Football Club and a wide range of community groups.
It is available to book for events via the Parish Council
