Richard ‘Dick’ Latter was a very highly respected cricket coach, member and friend of Tunbridge Wells Cricket Club, who selflessly gave a huge amount of his time to youth cricket at the Club over many years. He is pictured here on the far-right back row in 2005 when former England captain Mike Gatting visited the Nevill for a charity event in the year England regained The Ashes.
To mark Dick’s involvement we are placing a commemorative plaque in the Upper Ground pavilion on June 24th at 6.30 p.m.
Tunbridge Wells Cricket Club warmly welcomes new members.
Widely acknowledged as one of the most picturesque grounds in the country, The Nevill is a marvellous place to play cricket. We have a comfortable pavilion with a well-stocked bar, so even if you are a non-playing member you can just call by and take in some cricket while relaxing over a cool drink. E.W.Swanton referred to the venue as “no mean contender for the most delectable English Cricket Ground” citing “this glorious rhododendral splendour” on one June visit.
The Adult Summer training is every Tuesday at the Nevill starting at 5.45 and running as late as the light allows. All playing members wishing to play adult cricket are welcome including any players wishing to join. We may use both the nets and the grass nets. If the weather during the Tuesday has been wet, please check that the training is on by texting in the first instance 07973 694435. There is a facebook page which is updated for those using this facility. The main point of contact is Dave Smith who will be coaching, or Alex Williams (click here).
