Perched on top of a hill in the village and overlooking the Chiltern Hills (our local weather forecaster: if you can’t see the hills, it’s about to rain, if you can see the hills, it’s raining already).
We are an exceptionally friendly team who not only are passionate about playing the game, but enjoy the whole social and cultural aspect of it.
The club has thrived on its players enthusiasm, both past and present, and have built the club up to what it is today: a terrific ground, great views (when the sun does shine!) a self-built pavilion with showers, and, of course, cracking teas.
