The British Club has a very active Cricket Section playing a full programme of cricket throughout the year across all formats of the game. It currently plays in the competitive B Division of the Bangkok Cricket League; organises at least three tours a season including a beach cricket tournament on Koh Chang; 6 a-side ‘Fireball’ indoors-rules cricket at the Club; various 6-a-side and 8-a-aside tournaments and a number of other social matches.
The British Club provides an attractive floodlit practice net on the Back Lawn plus a Multi Purpose Court where the 6-a-side indoor rules games are played. League matches and all other cricket matches are currently played at grounds around Bangkok and Thailand.
The British Club team is competitive and ambitious, but the emphasis is very much on enjoyment. The Club plays more cricket than any other team in Bangkok and has a lot more fun! We currently have players from Australia, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka and on average over the last few years our playing team has consisted of six nationalities. The squad is one big family, getting together socially after matches and practices of course, but also in between. Wives and girlfriends are an important part of the Section and make us even more international by adding Italian, Russian and Thais to the mix. The ladies are also our keenest scorers.
Members of all ages and abilities are encouraged to join the Cricket Section, which entitles participation in all activities for 500-Baht/ year and 100 Baht/month for unlimited use of the cricket nets. Regular practice net sessions are held at the club Thursdays at 6.30 pm and Saturdays at 2:30pm when there is no match fixture.
Please contact Ben Eastwell via firstname.lastname@example.org or more information or drop in to one of the net sessions. Practice kit is provided; all you will need is a pair of trainers and sports gear.
Junior cricket coaching is provided by Daniel Jacobs, captain of the Thailand national cricket team. Click here for details
