Cricket in France began in the second half of the nineteenth century and started to become popular in the 1890s with a dozen or so teams. The SAC has had an active Cricket section since 1893, when the first publicly recorded matches took place.

In those early days there were no formally prepared cricket pitches, so the SAC can count itself lucky today to be able to play on its own pitch surrounded by the glorious Forêt de Meudon.

The SAC's cricketers have an active fixture list, both home and away throughout the summer, including an annual tour to the UK. We welcome to SAC visiting teams from elsewhere in France, as well as teams touring from the UK, Europe, and beyond.

Cricket at the SAC is taken extremely seriously, with a work hard and play hard attitude that combines matches, training sessions in the nets, and refreshments at the bar!

A welcoming atmosphere is fostered to encourage juniors and families. Our junior development program accepts youngsters from 8 years of age onwards and is conducted each Saturday morning.

The cricket season starts at the beginning of May and lasts through until the end of September.

Matches generally start at 1 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
