Bagshot CC was offcially formed in 1867 although there are records of cricket being played in Bagshot Park since the late 1700s.
The ground, which is owned solely by the club, is situated on the edge of Crown Estate land adjacent to The Duke and Duchess of Wessex residence within Bagshot Park.
Although situated in Surrey (we are on the Berkshire border), Bagshot choose to play their competitive cricket in The Thames Valley Cricket League, with teams in Divisions 2, 6 and 8 respectively.

Bagshot are a Surrey Clubmark Focus Club with 15 ECB Qualified level 1 & 2 coaches. It is very much a cricket club in the traditional sense, with no paid employees on or off the cricket pitch, except for employing the (part-time) services of a groundsman who looks after, amongst others, the square at Guildford CC.
