I’d like to watch or play cricket near London. What is the best way?

I’m trippng to London in July. Although I don’t know much about cricket, I’d like to watch it at least.

Is cricket really popular in the UK? Can I watch it easily in the park or somewhere? And I wonder if women usually play cricket.

I suggest you contact Lords Cricket Ground or the Oval. Whether cricket is popular seems to depend upon how well England are beating Australia!!!

Women do play cricket but it is not usual. However we do have county sides as well as a national side. for some details, contact www.lords.org or contact:

Marylebone Cricket Club

Lord’s Cricket Ground

St John’s Wood

London NW8 8QN

General switchboard: 020 7616 8500

They will be very helpful!  Cricket can be both fun and boring, so watch out! Someone said it’s a little like fishing – nothing can happen for ages then there is activity. I like watching cricket but do not play Enjoy!

They are having a women's cricket day on 14th August. I know it is after July but they may have details of other things.

Also if you travel around the suburbs on a weekend you're bound to see some guys having a hit. If you just want to see local games.

If you're there for a while you could probably get involved in an indoor cricket match. Then you could mix it with the boys.

They have indoor cricket at lords as well.

Go and watch one of the counties play. Middlesex play at Lords, St Johns Wood underground station, Bakerloo. Surry play at the Oval, Oval station on Northern Line.

You won't get tickets for internationals at this kind of notice, and they are expensive anyway.

You could try and find people playing in the park, but I don't live in London, so I don't know where the amatuer grounds are.

Cricket is going through a popular phase in England at the moment on the back of the Ashes last summer, women don't play much cricket, but the womans game is expanding all the time.
