Bashley (Rydal) Cricket Club is located on the edge of the New Forest. We are a community club providing a safe and friendly environment for players of all ages to enjoy the game of cricket. We run five Saturday league sides (from 2007) and a Sunday side plus junior cricket for all the age groups from Under 9 through to Under 19.
The first team competes at the highest recreational level in the elite ECB Southern Premier League. The second team plays in premier Division 2. We are one of only a handful of clubs that has two teams in the premier leagues. The third team play in the Hampshire County leagues, with the fourth and fifth teams playing in the Hampshire Regional leagues and providing an ideal stepping stone from colts to senior cricket – or a resting place for those travelling in the opposite direction!
Since the premier league structure was launched in 2000 we have consistently achieved the Gold accreditation standard covering playing facilities and the provision of colts cricket. In May 2006, we became one of the first clubs in the county to achieve full Clubmark accreditation.
At the Bashley Cricket Ground (BCG), we have two pitches, two practice nets, plus a fully licensed bar in the main pavilion.1st Team 2nd Team 3rd Team 4th Team 5th Team
