Cricket Facilities

Stratton Park has one of only 2 public cricket pitches in the whole of Basingstoke, right on our door step – but we do not have our own cricket team! We are the home ground for  Hook & Newnham Basics Cricket Club.

Hook have 5 senior teams as well as a  wide range of Juniors cricket opportunities. Hook IV and V  teams  regard  Stratton Park as their home ground – playing on Saturdays. The 2016  programme of matches is shown below.

Full details of the Club can be found at www.hnbcc.org.uk/home/

2016 home games in Stratton Park on Saturdays all start at 14.00

2nd Kempshott Guides Help Rejuvenate the Hedgerow

Volunteers from the 2nd Kempshott Guides did a great job in planting the first set of young hedgerow shrubs – part of our plans to renovate the old hedgerow by the tennis courts – on Sunday March the 25th. 32 new hawthorns and blackthorns were planted and carefully watered in, along with several little dog roses.

We do not know what the weather prospects are for the next six months, but in case it is as dry as February and March have been, the Guides and Brownies have kindly volunteered to water the new plants, to ensure that they all survive and thrive.
