Faringdon & District Cricket Club

Cricket TeamFaringdon & District Cricket Club is a friendly family focused cricket club. An ideal place for serious and social cricketers both young and old.

In 1910 and probably earlier, the cricket club was off the end of Southampton Street about where Walker Drive is today (north of Volunteer Way). When the new housing estate was built the club had to move across to a new location at the brand new Folly Sports Park, Stanford Road; opened in 2012 (photos below).
