Leverstock Green Cricket Club promotes the growth and enjoyment of competitive cricket at all age levels, by meeting the aspirations of Premier League standards and facilities and ensuring the continuous development of junior players.
The game of cricket was first played on a regular basis in Leverstock Green during the 1920’s. The team played regular Saturday matches until the end of the 1939 season, when, due to the outbreak of the Second World War, it was reluctantly forced to disband.
It was not until 1957, almost twenty years later, that several players from those early days, together with local residents both old and new managed to persuade the authorities to allow the ground to be used as a cricket pitch. This then became the new home of Leverstock Green Cricket Club.
