…… to the Newdigate Cricket Club web site.
We are a thriving cricket club, playing on a picturesque ground, situated on the Surrey/Sussex border, equidistant from Dorking, Reigate and Horsham. We have a new pavilion which provides the club with fantastic headquarters and our two lane nets were replaced in June 2022. We also have an artificial pitch, covers and an electronic scoreboard.
This is what Surrey County Cricket club has written about us. “Premier side Newdigate, a bastion of village cricket on the Surrey/Sussex border and relative newcomers after starting life in 1849. Playing a full part in the heart of their community, they arrived late in league cricket by joining the Surrey Downs League in 1999 and switched to the Fuller’s in 2013.”
We offer a friendly environment for cricketers of all ages and abilities.
In 2023 we ran two Saturday sides in the Surrey County League. The 1st XI will be played in the 1st Division and finished in 8th place and the 2nd XI played in the 2nd Division and finished in 5th place. Visit the Surrey County League.

Simon Hughes has written in the May 2020 issue of the Cricketer:
“Sport is a temporary deflection away from reality, an uplifting experience after a hard week at work – whether playing or watching – or an opportunity to bond with people who share a communal passion”.
IMPORTANT – STROKES, BLOOD CLOTS ETC.
This is for everyone. If somebody stumbles unaccountably they may have had a stroke. Ask them to smile, to say a simple sentence or raise both arms. Also ask them to stick out their tongue and check if it is crooked. If they cannot do any of these simple things call the emergency service (details on the notice board on the balcony) as they may have had a stroke. Time is of the essence you might just save a life!
