Sponsorship

Weybridge Cricket Club

Ward Williams has sponsored Weybridge Cricket Club since 2013. The funding that is provided helps Weybridge Cricket Club to promote cricket within the local community.

Weybridge Cricket Club was established in 1924 and cricket has been played on our rural and picturesque ground since then. The Club currently runs four league teams each Saturday and features in two Sunday knock-out challenges. The first XI are three times winners of the Surrey Championship League formed in 1999 and the Second and Third elevens play in their respective Premier divisions. Weybridge Cricket Club has a very high profile Colt’s academy catering for age groups from 8–17 years old with professional coaching and a great deal of encouragement.

The Club is proud of its social activities with many events organised throughout the year ranging from an annual dinner and dance to boules competitons, quiz nights and much more. All major sporting events are featured in the pavilion on either Sky or terrestrial television.

Each year Ward Williams arranges a friendly cricket match with other companies in Weybridge. Keep an eye on our website for latest event information.

Uxbridge Cricket Club

There are records of cricket being played in the Uxbridge area as far back as 1735, however the official founding date of Uxbridge Cricket Club is 8th June 1789.

The first games were played on the Uxbridge Moor area of the town, later moving to Uxbridge Common. In 1858 the Club moved again, to a field behind the eastern end of the High Street and remained there until 1970 when the redevelopment of the town centre obligated the Club to seek a new home. The move to the present site, opposite Uxbridge Common, is a return to an old haunt.

At our current location we have two grounds, together with practice facilities as well as the usual changing and social facilities. There is also the opportunity to play other sports such as bowls, rugby, squash and tennis.

For a number of years Middlesex County Cricket Club have played championship and cup matches at Uxbridge including the popular Twenty20 format.

The high points for Uxbridge cricket have been the winning of the Thames Valley Cricket League in 1982, followed by reaching the Final of the Evening Standard Challenge Trophy in 2000 which was played at The Oval. More recently the Sunday First XI were entered into the Chess Valley League for the 2006 season, with immediate promotion followed in 2007 by an undefeated run to the CVL Division 4 Championship, while the Second XI also earned promotion in 2007 during their inaugural campaign. In 2011 both the Saturday Second & Fourth Teams celebrated successful campaigns by winning their respective leagues. This was topped in 2012 with all three Middlesex County Cricket League sides earned promotion, with the Sunday First XI also rising up to Division 2 of the Chess Valley League.

Since 1989 Uxbridge have been playing in the ECB Middlesex County League, the foremost league in the county.
