Sonning Cricket Club is located in the picturesque village of Sonning on Thames, just to the east of Reading, in Berkshire. 

We are a very successful and popular village cricket club. In the 2014 season our 1st XI playing in Thames Valley League Division 2b, our 2nd XI in TVL Division 4b, our 3rd XI in Division 2 of the Berkshire Cricket League and our 4th XI playing in BCL Division 4. 

We also run two XIs on a Sunday, with a wide range of friendly fixtures against clubs scattered across the counties of Berks, South Bucks, South Oxon and North Surrey. We have a full senior fixture list with cricket to cater for all standards, from mid-April to mid-Sept, and our summer tours are legendary! 

Our pre-season winter nets will be held at Blue Coat School, Sonning Lane on Tuesdays from 6.30 -7.45 p.m. from 18th Feb – 29th April inclusive (apart from 4th March when the hall is not available) and our senior outdoor practice nets will be held thereafter at our home ground at King George’s Field on Thursday evenings.  For further information on senior cricket, please contact the Chairman, Jamie Travers (

Our juniors continue to go from strength to strength following their inaugural season in 2008, and in 2012 we were awarded the ECB Clubmark, of which we are very proud and in 2013 our Under 13’s won division 2 of the BYCL. In 2014 we will be running U9s, 2 x U11s, U13s and 2 x U15s and all will be playing league cricket. Training is held for all age groups on a weekly basis at our home ground King George's Field and at Reading Blue Coat School. For further information on junior cricket, please contact the relevant age group manager via the details on our Contacts page. 

We are a very friendly and sociable club which plays hard on and off the field and new players are always welcome.
