Arundel Castle Cricket Club will celebrate its 125th anniversary in 2022 with an extensive fixture list featuring teams from across the international, domestic and amateur game.

Built in 1895 by the 15th Duke of Norfolk, with the first game being played in 1897, Arundel will play host to a multitude of fixtures, including the men’s and women’s one-day varsity matches between Oxford and Cambridge University, England Deaf, England Physical Disabilities, and the Cricketer Cup Final. The ground will also welcome South Africa Women for a 3-day game in June against England ‘A’.

The historic ground also sees the Duke of Norfolk’s XI, who continue to be a cornerstone of cricket at Arundel, play fixtures against the MCC and The Lord’s Taverners. In addition, a Duke of Norfolk’s Women’s XI will take on a FairBreak Global XI – an invitational side made up of players from all over the world whose mission is to progress gender equality.

“We are delighted to celebrate this milestone anniversary with such a varied fixture calendar in keeping with the ground’s traditions,” said James Rufey, Chief Operating Officer at Arundel Castle Cricket Club.

“Throughout the 125-year history, Arundel has proudly hosted cricket matches for players from all levels of the sport, from international touring teams and first-class fixtures, to charity matches and the amateur game.

“Today, Arundel continues to host a range of cricket throughout the season, and we look forward to celebrating a wonderful summer of cricket.”
