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:

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!
