Established in 1850 and situated in Buckinghamshire, England, Taplow Cricket Club is a founder member of the Morrant Chilterns Cricket League . We have a large and thriving colts section and two senior teams playing various grades of cricket from the challenges of a highly competitive and enjoyable local league on Saturdays to the more relaxed and traditional image of friendly village cricket on Sundays.
Back in 1975, the first XI were champions of the Chilterns League in its inaurgural season. We then had to wait (and wait) 31 years before managing to do it again. 2006 was a big year for us. Not only did we win the league, we also won the league cup for the fourth time in 5 years. Happily, in 2007 we managed to hold on to both trophies; we won the cup after a thrilling win over Wraysbury and we chased down long time leaders Penn on the last day to retain the league title. In 2008 we held on to the cup and came up just short (by one league point) of completing a stunning hat-trick of doubles.
The playing membership ranges from the colts up to a few seasoned campaigners in their sixties! We've also been fortunate to have had assistance from some extremely talented overseas players here during the last few years.
Ten Acres has also seen the likes of Jimmy Adams, Richie Richardson, Ian Harvey, Chris Harris, Derek Underwood plus many other first class and test cricketers playing here in the annual President's match. It's largely thanks to our president's support that so many extraordinary improvements have been made not only to the clubhouse but to the nets, ground and just about all aspects of Taplow Cricket Club.
The committee work hard to continue the development of the club for the benefit of its members. We received Community Amateur Sports Club status in 2008 and are currently progressing with the work necessary to attain ECB Clubmark Accreditation. All in all, Taplow Cricket Club count themselves a success story of English village cricket.
