Friends

The Trustees of Broadhalfpenny Down Preservation Trust and Committee of Broadhalfpenny Brigands are grateful to be part of a wonderful cricket-loving community.

 

We are indebted to our groundsman, Rod, and ever vigilant "Ground Member" of the Committee, Harry, for their year-round efforts maintaining the ground and preparing wickets to play on. Thank-you to Fuller’s for providing our famous London Pride covers.

 

Two features of cricket at Broadhalfpenny Down are splendid cricket teas and post-match refreshments at the Bat and Ball public house and we thank all those that make this such a highlight.

Cricket at Broadhalfpenny Down is immeasurably improved thanks to our strong links with the Marylebone Cricket ClubHampshire Cricket Board, the Royal Navy, Hambledon CC and Winchester College, and we are grateful to the ECB and Winchester District Council for the assistance they provided during the COVID-19 pandemic. Serious Cricket provides the Broadhalfpenny Brigands with their branded kit.

 

We appreciate the support from artist Jack Russell who captured Broadhalfpenny Down in its glory before the new pavilion was built.

 

Our website was built by OMO Design with support from our favourite radio station, Classic FMMembers of the old Hambledon Club assisted with historical research; Stephen Saunders and Dave Allen did fact-checking, shared some lovely photographs and helped with a bibliography.

 

Stuart Palmer provided the drone footage of Broadhalfpenny Down, Dave Vokes, Dave Bodymore, Milly Henderson and Russell Sachs have all provided us with photographs for use on the website. Other images were supplied from players and supporters, and from Getty and Alamy under license. The talented Renars Fazlutdinovs designed the Broadhalfpenny Down logo.

Broadhalfpenny Down is a stunning event location and we have worked closely with Lewis Marquees over the years to create a magical setting for weddings, parties and private events.

 

We also thank the generous support from friends such as Sytner Land Rover (who have provided match shirts for 2022 and beyond), technology consultancy Amido, the world's leading cricket helmet manufacturer Masuri, Hambledon Vineyard and Veuve Cliquot (who are also celebrating their 250th anniversary in 2022).
