Although Chalke Valley Cricket Club was founded only in 2000, there has been cricket played in the Valley for many years.
In the 1950s and sixties, Bowerchalke CC was a force to be reckoned with, while Broad Chalke CC grew in strength from its
beginnings in 1958 and was still going strong when it was renamed Chalke Valley at the turn of the millennium. In June
2008, the Club celebrated fifty years of cricket at Broad Chalke.
The club moved to a beautiful new ground at Butts Field, Bowerchalke in 2010. The Ground Opening took place on a hot
June day against a celebrity Bunbury Cricket Club XI. In January 2014, a new pavilion was constructed replacing the temporary twin-peaked marquee pavilion.
Today, the club plays league cricket in the Dorset Saturday League and friendly matches on a Sunday. During the week, the
club takes part in the Old Sarum Invitation League Twenty20. The club also offers coaching to junior players and to anyone
else who would like some help tweaking their bowling action, improving their straight drives or honing their fielding.
The club held its first cricket festival at the end of 2017. There were 4 days of cricket which culminated a hugely successful and profitable match against the PCA Masters.
The club has recently installed new nets and is getting ready for the 2018 season. Membership of the club is strong but we always welcome new members( young or old, boy or girl, playing or non-playing).Nets are held on a Thursday evening throughout the season.
