WPCC History behind The Club

Cricket soon became a key part of Wickham Park Sports Club’s activities after the formation of the Club in 1932 by a group of residents in the newly built houses in Pickhurst Rise & other local roads. After World War 2’s inevitable disruption, play re-started & we have photographs of that era. Teams on Saturdays & Sundays played a full season of friendly matches.

League cricket started in the 1970s & we have been members (in turn) of the South Thames League, the North Kent League & the Kent League and currently the Kent Regional Cricket league. while still playing friendly fixtures on Sundays.

In 1999 we merged with Lloyds Bank CC after they lost the use of their ground.
