Wilmslow Cricket Club is not only Wilmslow’s only cricket club, located in the heart of the town, but is also one of the friendliest and most inclusive clubs in Cheshire.
Hello and welcome to the Mens section of Wilmslow Cricket Club!
My name is Adrian Rowe and I am very proud to have been elected as Chairman of Wilmslow Cricket Club for the 2022 season. Although I have played cricket nearly all my life, I can understand how some people who are new to the game might find it a bit confusing. But don’t worry. If you’ve not played since school, or are a complete novice, we’ll teach you everything you need to know in our weekly training sessions, to make sure you get the most out of your experience of playing with The Squirrels. The basic rules are simple and involves one person hurling a ball at another, who tries to hit it with a piece of wood whilst ten other people run round collecting the ball. There are also tremendous health and social benefit from playing.
Being a part of Wilmslow Cricket Club isn’t just about playing cricket, we also have a strong social side, with monthly social events and trips to see professional games at Old Trafford as well. If you’re new to the area, or are looking to grow your friendship circle, Wilmslow’s local cricket team is for you

Did you Know…
“Wilmslow Cricket Club was established in 1946 and played out of the Old Rectory in the centre of town, which is now occupied by the Miller & Carter. The club has 3 senior sides and still plays on the ‘Rectory Field’, it’s home for the last 76 years. The playing area used to be much larger before the Wilmslow Leisure Centre was constructed about 40 years ago. Although this did reduce the size of the field and required the square to be moved, but it does mean we are the only Cricket Club in Cheshire with a Clubhouse that has a swimming pool!”
