Welcome to Bournemouth School Associates CC!
Calling all cricket enthusiasts – we have cricket for you! Now is the perfect time to reconnect with Bournemouth School through the game! If you, your friends and/or your family are interested in social, friendly cricket where you’ll be able to catch-up with fellow school associates then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. You’ll find contact details and more information on the club below.
We play weekly Sunday friendlies across some of the most picturesque grounds that Dorset, East Wiltshire and the New Forest have to offer. Games tend to consist of innings of 35 overs and more importantly a tea break between innings. After each game there’s often a trip to a local pub for a post-match debrief. We don’t have training sessions during the summer but do run a few pre-season net sessions in the later winter months to welcome in the summer and dust off the inevitable cobwebs.
As mentioned above, many Old Bournemouthians have joined our ranks and so the club is a great place for people who were previously involved in the school to meet up. This said, we are also an inclusive club with a diverse range of players from around the local area. We recruit men and women into our ranks – essentially anyone who enjoys a sociable and friendly approach to cricket is welcome – whether you haven’t played in years and are looking for a way back into the sport or are a keen cricketer looking for a Sunday side, BSACC is an excellent fit.

The BSA Cricket Club started life in 1969 as a Bournemouth School staff team, which played games mid-week and on Sundays either at Castle Lane, on the school ground, or in the surrounding countryside, often in close proximity to a country pub. As time passed and staff left or got older, the club opened its doors to include parents of pupils. With the further passage of time the staff element of the team disappeared completely and the remit widened further to include Old Boys of the school, which is mainly how the club operates today.
If you have any further queries and/or are interested in joining then please don’t hesitate to contact us. Emails for our recruitment secretary and team secretary are included below. Don’t forget you can also get in touch with and follow us on Facebook and Instagram by clicking the links below.
Imagine the scene – you’re at a picturesque ground bathed in the glow of a beautiful summer’s day. Why not make this a reality?
