WELCOME TO THE CRYPTICS CRICKET CLUB - ONLINE PAVILION
Cryptics CC was founded in 1910, as a wandering club made up predominantly of teachers and university lecturers. The membership has expanded over the years, welcoming people from all walks of life, but there is still a strong representation from academia in the club.
Games are largely played at grounds between Oxford and London. There are annual Northern, Southern & West Midlands tours, along with international tours to Europe and further afield such as Kenya, Singapore, Malaysia, Argentina & South Africa. Players & members have included leading figures from the cricket world - such a Justin Langer (Western Australia, Middlesex, Somerset & Australia) & Jamie Dalrymple (Middlesex, Glamorgan & England)
