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 the Forest of Dean division of the Gloucester League (KW Bell Forest League). Sunday matches are non-league and the club also decamps for an annual tour. The 2010 fixtures list is shown here.
The club welcomes new members and also welcomes touring sides keen to play at such an attractive venue. Please contact Bryn Boycott (01600 713943).
