Cricket has been played at The Grove since the founding of the club in 1856/7. We run 3 adult teams  and 3 junior teams, and welcome players of all ages and abilities.

On Saturdays Hythe compete in the Kent Regional League and our Sunday team plays in the Kent Village League. We play several non-league matches throughout the season, and have a thriving social cricket team playing on Monday evenings.  Whether you are looking to play competitive league cricket or take part in the odd friendly fixture we look forward to welcoming you to the Club.

We have excellent facilities, including modern 2 lane cricket nets, and after an ambitious fundraising effort, a newly laid cricket wicket.

2021 pre-season nets training starts on Saturday 3rd April , followed by Wednesday evening nets throughout the season.

We are always looking for new players. If you are thinking of moving clubs, have recently moved to the area or want to get back into the sport, email: to get involved.
