The village of Penallt is blessed with a most splendid and attractive cricket ground and an even more impressive pavilion, all on a hill top nearly 800 feet above sea level. There are records of cricket being played at Penallt for well over 120 years and the original ground was almost adjacent to its current position. The cricket ground was renovated in 1990, the occasion being celebrated with a gala match against Worcestershire CCC.
Nowadays the club has been reformed as the Penallt and Redbrook Cricket Club and plays Saturday matches in Division one (West) of the Cheltenham, Gloucester and Forest of Dean cricket league, along with occasional Sunday and midweek friendlies. Players can be found celebrating or drowning their sorrows at the Inn at Penallt after home fixtures.
Net sessions are held each Thursday evening during the season, weather permitting.
The club welcomes new players of all ages, experiences, genders and abilities, and and is happy to host touring sides keen to play at such an attractive venue.
