Opportunity to become a Groundsperson at the Cradle of Cricket

One of the nicest men in cricket, Harry Bates, has decided to retire from his Honorary Groundsperson role at Broadhalfpenny Down at the end of the 2024 season.

So we are now looking for a Cricket Grounds Person to join a close-knit team, responsible for the maintenance of a beautiful and historic ground where the inaugural First Class cricket match took place.

The role, based in Hambledon in Hampshire, is part time with flexible hours, including some weekend working.

The ideal candidate will have the ability to remain calm under pressure, excellent communication skills, and a keen interest in cricket. Ground preparation training can be provided.

For more details, contact Gerry Northwood at or on 07952 866117.
