Cricket has been played at The Grove since the founding of the club in 1856 and is thriving in 2023.  We run 5 adult teams  and 5 junior teams (3 mixed/boys, 2 girls), 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 have a thriving social cricket team playing on Monday evenings, and an exciting new mid week competition for 2023 ‘The Hythe Smash’.  New players of all ages are always welcome, whether you are looking to play competitive league cricket, or get back into cricket with some training sessions and take part in the odd friendly fixture.  Contact to get involved.

All of our fixtures and results are here:

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

Adult nets training training is from  5.30/6.00pm  on Wednesday evenings from 4th May onwards throughout the season.
