Bedales has a rich cricket history and enjoys competitive fixtures at all age levels for boys and girls.

Matches take place traditionally every Wednesday for Bedales Prep, Dunhurst and on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays for Bedales Senior. Our fixtures take a variety of formats against local schools and touring teams from this country and abroad as well as annual tour to the West Country for the Dunhurst First XI. 

We have a flourishing alumni team, Stoner Cricket Club, which play against the school annually on Parents' Day and hold a traditional cricket week on the first week of every summer holiday.

During term time we have staff/parents team, Gentlemen of Bedales, who play local clubs and schools on Sundays and midweek.
