Englefield Green Cricket Club – pavilion development plan

Cricket has been played on Englefield Green for over 200 years.  For many years players changed in the Barley Mow pub and then in a shed. In 1956 the current pavilion was built to face the square where cricket was played.

Following the building of the children’s playground and a safety assessment the square was moved meaning that the game could no longer be viewed from inside the pavilion.

Englefield Green cricket club is now developing plans to:

  • completely refurbish the building;

  • improve access inside and out;

  • upgrade the heating, lighting and ventilation;

  • reconfigure internally so that cricket can be viewed;

  • create a building that can be used all year round by the village.

“I have recognised the need for a better facility in this unique location where our whole community comes to enjoy the green space.  A safe space for parents to have a coffee and socialise whilst their children learn cricket or use the play equipment would be hugely welcomed throughout the village and we have a real need for a building where clubs and groups can meet. This is in walking distance from one of the most densely populated housing estates in Surrey where there is a serious lack of amenity and a high level of deprivation – a proper building with the right facilities can be well used to support residents living there and I am keen to work with the club to take this forward.”
