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 two groundsmen, Rod and Harry, for their year-round efforts maintaining the ground and preparing wickets to play on, and thanks 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.

 

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 Milly Henderson at 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 and shared some lovely photographs, and Stuart Palmer provided the drone footage of Broadhalfpenny Down. Other images were supplied from players and supporters, and from Getty and Alamy under license.

Cricket at Broadhalfpenny Down is immeasurably improved thanks to our strong links with the Bat and Ball Public House, Hampshire 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 have provided during the COVID-19 pandemic. Serious Cricket provides the Broadhalfpenny Brigands with their branded kit.

Broadhalfpenny Down is a great 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 technology consultancy Amido, the world's leading cricket helmet manufacturer Masuri and Veuve Cliquot (who are also celebrating their 250th anniversary in 2022).
