Mark Nicholas, Chris Tremlett & Sean Ervine To Feature In Hampshire All-Star XI Charity Match

Updated: May 20, 2022

Broadhalfpenny Down is playing host to a pair of charity matches – on Friday 24th & Saturday 25th June – to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the original First-Class match, played at Hambledon in 1772.

Broadhalfpenny Down, the home of the Hambledon Club, was the location of the inaugural First-Class match in June 1772 between Hampshire and an All-England team and the famed ground will be hosting two celebratory matches this June to mark the 250th anniversary of that first-ever match.

Tickets for these charity matches – with all proceeds going to support the work of the Broadhalfpenny Down Preservation Trust – are on sale now and available to purchase below.

The first match is to be played on Friday 24th June and will see a Hampshire All Star XI – including the likes of Mark Nicholas, Chris Tremlett and Sean Ervine – contest a 30-over match against an All England XI. The match starts at 1:30pm and will finish by 6pm.

The following day (Saturday 25th June) will see a Hampshire/Southern Vipers women’s XI face an All England women’s XI – with the match again consisting of 30-overs per side and starting at 1:30pm.

Tickets for Friday’s match – priced at £10 for Adults – also grant admission to Saturday’s match, while standalone tickets for Saturday’s match (£5) are also available. Under 17s go free to both matches and don’t require a ticket.

The All England XI teams will be announced in the coming days and will include ex-England internationals and representatives from England Disability cricket through to deserving Club cricketers and actors that have appeared in the most English of all movies!
