Welcome to the Cricket Section

Welcome to Wickham Park Cricket Club

We are a small, lively, and very friendly Cricket Club ideally situated between the hamlets of West Wickham and Hayes in the London Borough of Bromley. We have a full programme of matches serving the local community and the Cricket Club.

We currently run two Saturday League teams – our first team plays in the Kent Cricket League, Tier 2, Division 7, and the second team plays in Tier 5, Division 12.

On Sundays, there is one team which plays friendly fixtures, mostly at home and it is a good opportunity for families and friends to come down and support.

Midweek, the ground is used regularly by the XL Club, Kent Over 60s and the Bromley Under 11s as well as by our Wickham Park midweek team. We have also joined the DynoT20 league playing 20 overs against local sides and will be playing indoor cricket during the winter months.

There is an active clubhouse with fully licensed bar and hall.

A note on recent events

To all Members and Parents,

The last few days have brought the subject of discrimination in cricket to the front pages of the newspapers.

The WPCC Committee wanted to reiterate that discrimination of any kind has no place in cricket anywhere, and certainly not at Wickham Park Cricket Club.

In that respect we wanted to draw to your attention a couple of things.

Firstly, Kent have issued their own statement on discrimination in cricket, which we are wholeheartedly behind. It includes information on the Independent Commission for Equity in Cricket (ICEC), which has released a Call for Evidence in order to hear people’s experiences of discrimination and inclusion in cricket.https://www.kentcricket.co.uk/news/club-statement-09-11-21/

Secondly, as a committee we would love to hear views from any of our members, as to how we could make WPCC an even more inclusive place to play cricket.

Our Safeguarding Officer Lynne Hayward ( wayward.five@btinternet.com ) has offered to be the conduit for any thoughts/views into the committee on this, at any time, and people should feel encouraged to do so.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Nicholas Dumper


It is a long document and I have put the website address below, if you are interested in reading the whole document. A brief summary is below.

Tier 2 (our 1st team)
10 teams in the League. 2 up / 2 down
45 overs each - max 9 overs per bowler
Umpire to be provided (he/she can not play)
Start 1230
2 balls per game - Readers Superior Crown
Strict definition of wide

Tier 5 (our 2nd team)
10 teams in the League. 2 up / 2 down
40 overs each - max 8 overs per bowler
Start 1300
2 balls per game - Readers County Crown

Standardisation of “Last Hour” rule across all Tiers

1.17 Any match in which the agreed number of overs have not been completed (e.g., due to stoppages for bad weather/light) and no result has been achieved, shall be deemed to have been abandoned. In the event of an interruption in play, the final hour shall commence at 7.00 pm from which time a minimum of 16 overs shall be bowled. For matches starting after 15th August, the time 6.15 pm should be read. If at the end of that hour (or 16 overs if later) no result has been achieved, the match shall be deemed to have been abandoned. In the event of interference by weather or bad light in the last hour of play, one over shall be deducted for each three minutes, or fraction thereof, that is lost. Before the recommencement of play, the umpires shall indicate to the scorers and players the minimum number of overs to be bowled.

A reminder about behaviour.

Whereas the General Conduct Regulations deal with poor behaviour, generally reported by an umpire/witness, the responsibility for upholding standards of behaviour always lies squarely with the Clubs, and particularly the captain of each team on the day.

I am happy if someone points out that I have got something wrong. Please let me know. The first league games are Saturday 4th May.
