About the League | Committee | Hall of Fame

The Victoria Park Community Cricket League was formed over 20 years ago to provide a wide range of people with access to competitive cricket. Some are decidedly more competitive than others, but the aim is that games are played in a friendly and welcoming spirit. Anyone, regardless of ability, gender, creed, colour, is most welcome.

We play here...

Based in Victoria Park in east London, we play two competitions, the league and a knock-out cup. The league is played in three divisions, selected from preliminary games at thes start of the season (see the League Tables page for more details).

Trophies are awarded for winning each division and of course, there is the cup.

Matches are 8-a-side and 16 overs per innings, max four overs per bowler, batsmen retiring at 50. The batting side umpires -- meaning it's very important teams play in the Spirit of the Game (for more details see the Rules page).

All matches are played Monday to Thursday evenings, starting between 6 and 6:30 pm. We appreciate that some sides have difficulty getting to the park on time, what with inconvenient things like jobs, but if you don't start by 6.30 at the latest, you do lose the light at the start and end of the season and will have to play a shortened game.

All match balls are provided by the League and paid for out of your league fees.

Details of all matches can be found on the Fixures and Results page.
