Ground Hire

We are very fortunate to host many returning touring teams each year, many of whom have toured at the club for over 30 years. These include the Shrewsbury Saracens, the Frogs, UCS Old Boys, The Brasenose Strollers, Somerset Stragglers, and Devon Dumplings amongst other teams.

Although we usually have a very busy summer packed full of fixtures, we love to host new touring sides or local teams. If you are interested in a fixture of any variety at our idyllic ground please fill out the contact form below.

Each fixture can be accommodated to suit the needs of your team. We offer, evening fixtures, timed fixtures, and limited over fixtures, all with start times that are suited around you. Teas are provided for fixtures unless stated and there is also potential for evening meals with our caterers.

If you are touring North Devon for the first time, we can also help you source accommodation and other places to eat. Our primary sponsor ’The Wayfarer’ offers great accommodation, as well as our long standing sponsor ’The Commodore Hotel’. We are also in contact with other local sides if you need assistance arranging other fixtures.

Our groundsmen, Andy Cameron works incredibly hard to create perfect pitches for all of our games and making sure the ground looks in top order. To help cover the cost for pitch preparation and other expenses including teas, we ask for a green fee to be paid prior to the fixture. All sides are to provide two new match balls for the fixture:

Afternoon fixture 40 over gam - £225
13:00 – 14:00 start to include tea for 13
Extra teas £5 per head
Balls charged extra at £25 per ball – minimum 2 balls (one per innings)

All day timed games - £350
11:30 start to include lunch and tea for 13
Extra lunch and teas - £10 per head

Evening fixture 20 over game - £120

Payments to be made in full on arrangement of fixture – full refund will be made if no balls are bowled due to weather.

Our calendar is incredibly busy each year so if you are interested in touring this following year please do get in touch as soon as possible to discuss potential dates. This year in July, August and September we are accommodating over 80 different sides for fixtures.

Thank you.
