Barford Cricket Club in action, on a Summer Sunday.


Known to our friends as The Hares, Barford Cricket Club is a great place to be involved in Cricket for most ages. The Hares name coming from our Barford home on Hareway Lane is sadly outdated as we are now exiled to play our cricket in Snitterfield while we search for a ground back in Barford.

With members from the local retired community to local youngsters from the age of 14, we play friendly 40 over cricket with local villages on Sundays and some great fun 20/20 matches in the midweek during the Summer Season. We also hold a six a side fun tournament at the King George’s Playing Field in the Summer.

2021 Season
This season, despite all the challenges of the pandemic, has seen us win 21 matches and lose 17 which by Barford standards is a very solid season! The season also includes several fund-raising events at which you would all be welcome to join us, such as the Quiz night held in the village hall, the Six-a-Side tournament on the King George’s Playing Field which is always great fun, and finally we wrap up with an end of season awards night.

Winter Nets 2022
We have secured the indoor nets in Stratford starting 23rd January 2022. If you have played cricket before or you would like to just give Cricket a try then, for a small charge on the day, you would be most welcome.

Orienteering is the fun outdoor sport of finding control points using a special map to navigate.

It is a sport that appeals to all ages and abilities, from toddlers to senior citizens.

Many orienteers are part of family groups.

The Warwickshire club is called Octavian Droobers, and more information can be found on their website.

If you would like to discuss orienteering in an informal way, your local contacts are John and Kath Wright on 01926 624088. They will be pleased to help you.
