Barnes Common Cricket Club was established in 1976 by a friendly group of West London cricket-loving architects. The cricket pitch in Barnes Common presents a pleasant setting surrounded by dense trees and our home-ground is next to Barnes railway station, on the corner of Station Road and Vine Road. It is the oldest cricket pitch in Barnes, laid down around 1893, and previously used by Richmond Third Eleven.
The Barnes Common cricket pitch itself is well used but in general the track is well maintained and suitable for a decent game of cricket and is probably one of the most pleasant public cricket pitches in London.
We play non-league, amiable but competitive London village cricket. There is a full and varied fixture list. We are a good touring side we’ve played in Holland, India, Australia, Italy, Ireland, Barbados, Sri Lanka. Each year we do two local tours – to Shropshire in May, and the West Country at the end of August. We’re a welcoming bunch, of very mixed abilities, ages, occupations, from all walks of life.
