Welcome

Welcome to Friends of Arundel Castle Cricket Club, situated at one of the world’s most beautiful cricket grounds in the heart of the West Sussex countryside.

As a Club, we host the most fabulous and varied fixture list, which includes a Sussex Cricket Festival, ECB fixtures, MCC, I Zingari, UKAFCA (Combined Services), Southern Vipers, various national finals days and visits from many established overseas teams.

Members of the Club enjoy free entry to matches along with other membership benefits including exclusive lunches. As well as having one of the most beautiful grounds in the world, we are fortunate to have an excellent Indoor Cricket School, which hosts a variety of courses. We also offer opportunities to attend lunches and cricketing talks throughout the year.

Another real strength is our link with the Sussex Martlets who hold seven of their home matches at the Arundel Castle ground each year. The Club, with its magnificent views, in the heart of the West Sussex countryside provides the most outstanding all-round cricketing programme. 

Join us in 2022 to celebrate 125 years of cricket being played at Arundel Castle.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
