During the season there are league matches on every weekend. We have four adult teams and so there are always two matches at home and two matches away on a Saturday from lunchtime until early evening. Often there’s a friendly match on on a Sunday afternoon. Please check the fixtures pages for details. Members of the public are always welcome to come and watch and while away a few hours. On Saturdays we always have teas and coffees for sale and we have a licensed bar.
During the week there are often junior games taking place and sometimes we hold county matches – Garboldisham CC is renowned for its high quality pitches.
Here’s a list of some of our forthcoming special events in 2017:
The sportsman’s dinner is coming up on Friday 24th March. Our speaker is former England and Yorkshire opening bowler Matthew Hoggard and the comedian for the evening is Paul Boardman (former Sky Sports presenter and son of comedian Stan Boardman). Tickets are now all sold out.
