There has been a Cricket Club in Cattistock since before the wars. All that time the playing field has always been kept in superb condition, with all the work being done then at it is now, by the club’s willing supporters from across the village. And, through local funding, in the 1980’s the original pavilion was replaced with the existing building.
As well as always being a very friendly club to join, the Cattistock Cricket teams have been very successful over the years. They have won the Regional village trophy a few times, as well as the Dorset League and KO Cup and only last year they again reached the final of the KO Cup.
The Club currently has three teams: The Saturday team that plays in Division 1 of the Dorset League and two Evening teams who play in the Dorchester and District Evening League.
Throughout the winter months the players maintain their good form with net practice, which this year is being held at Perrott Hill School, Crewkerne.
So, if you feel like watching some good cricket, in a beautiful setting, or maybe trying hand with bat or ball, why not contact the club and get some details, they would delighted to hear from you.
