Turvey Cricket Club

Turvey has had a busy cricket club since at least the early 1870s - and it is still going strong today.

Cricket was originally played in front of Turvey House, then the ground was moved to Turvey Park, just off Carlton Road, after the First World War.

In 1998 Turvey Cricket Club moved to its current location in Turvey Park.

In the 1890's Turvey Cricket Club did very well in the numerous local matches.
