Cricket Week 2022

Cricket week, the highlight of our cricketing and social year, is now only 10 days away. We welcome back all our usual visitors, with matches every day between Monday 1st and Friday 5th August. The bar will be open every afternoon, tea will be available for supporters as well as players, and there will be home-cooked supper every evening.

Members and guests are most welcome on any day during the week – some locals come every day and enjoy a full week of evening meals! If you are not already a member or part of the visiting team’s party, we ask that you sign up as a social member before buying drinks, which you can do in just a minute or two at this link: Blackheath Social Membership.

To help us assess numbers in good time, we strongly encourage everyone who plans on coming to book meal tickets in advance (for details of what’s on the menu and links to the ticket for each evening, see below). It may also be possible to buy your meal on the evening, but unless you have booked we can’t guarantee there will be enough. Dessert is not included in the ticket price, but will be available separately for those who want it.

We’ll look forward to seeing you during the week!

Monday 1st August: Blackheath v Cricket Society (2pm start)

Our oldest cricket week fixture, the Cricket Society have been coming to Blackheath ever since our first cricket week in 1978.

Captain: Tom Vickers

Umpire: Alan Stone

Evening meal: Chicken in White Wine cooked by Kate Webb (tickets link: Monday supper)

Tuesday 2nd August: Blackheath v Grasshoppers (2pm start)

Grasshoppers are a strong wandering side drawing many of their players from Farnham CC and they invariably provide tough opposition.

Captain: Will Melhuish

Umpire: Eric Simpson

Evening meal: Peter’s Lamb Curry cooked by Vicky Cadelina (tickets link: Tuesday supper)

Wednesday 3rd August: Blackheath v Kenya Kongonis (11.30am start)

The Kenya Kongonis have been coming to Blackheath for many years as part of their annual tour. This is an all-day game with lunch in the marquee, and as in past years we will be raising funds in the evening for the East Africa Character Development Trust, a charity associated with the Kongonis which supports deprived children in and around Nairobi.

Captain: Alex Bertola

Umpire: Alan Stone

Lunch: Coronation chicken, selection of quiches and salads, selection of desserts (tickets link: Wednesday lunch)

Evening meal: Chicken and Chorizo Pie cooked by Olly Arengo-Jones (tickets link: Wednesday supper)

Thursday 4th August: Blackheath v Jack Frost (2pm start)

We’ve long had close links with Jack Frost with quite a few players being members of both clubs over the years. Since they became part of our cricket week, we’ve almost always had great matches involving a close finish.

Captain: Ronny Harrison

Umpire: Eric Simpson

Evening meal: Chicken Massaman cooked by Cill Culverwell (tickets link: Thursday supper)

Friday 5th August: Blackheath v Old Cranleighans (2pm start)

Another club we know well through various common members, Old Cranleighans now alternate with the MCC on the Fridays of our cricket week. They usually provide the strongest opposition of the week.

Captain: Pete Melhuish

Umpire: Terry Brockman

Evening meal: Selection of Paellas cooked by Paul Cope (tickets link: Friday supper)
