Sennocke Cricket Club is a Sevenoaks based cricket club with a home ground set in the shadow of the iconic Knole House, Knole Park, in the glorious county of Kent. We field a single Saturday side in the Kent County Village League and play occasional Sunday fixtures throughout the summer.

Quick History…
The club was formed during World War II by the Park Wardens, although cricket has been played in Knole Park, alongside the House for hundreds of years – Sevenoaks Vine were probably the second club formed in the Sevenoaks area. It’s also worth noting that we have a bigger tree on the outfield than Kent County Cricket Club.

About Us…
We are small – we always need and welcome new players and any non-players who would like to help out with bar, kitchen, scoring and umpiring duties – it’s a lovely place to watch cricket as well as play. All abilities are welcome, but if you can bowl at 85mph or you average 50+ you’ll be enthusiastically welcomed by our Skipper Dan (as long as your strike rate is in excess of 150 Julian). Our emphasis is about enjoying ourselves, but also doing ourselves and the club justice while on the field.

Playing Us…
If you’re playing at Knole you enter the park where via the main National Trust entrance next to Sevenoaks School and follow the road up to the House – park where you can. The Club House entrance is to the left of the House (near the old tea rooms) and forms part of the main wall.

Sponsorship Opportunities…
If you have a lot of money and would like to help us rejuvenate the club house and build a bigger club to rival the others in Sevenoaks please let us know as soon as possible!
