NOMADS CRICKET CLUB
Nomads Cricket Club was founded in St John's Wood, London in 1903 as Hampstead Nomads. Always a wandering club Nomads continues to play a full season of matches in UK on Sundays and Bank Holidays, some Saturdays and many mid weekdays every UK Cricket season. Nomads make regular tours in UK, Europe and Worldwide. In 2015 we arranged 87 matches and played 74 losing the rest to the weather. For 2017 we arranged 100 and played 79. In 2018 we arranged 100 matches and played 71. The 2019 list is almost complete.
Nomads' membership is very broad and diverse, in age and ability, and encompasses a multiplicity of nationalities both from the senior cricket countries as well as many new ones. We also have some women playing members. Our teams change from week to week and tour to tour. You meet many new people, make new cricket friends and visit many new grounds, some grand and some very picturesque. We also organise a number of suppers and a formal dinner in winter.
The club welcomes cricketers from all over the world to join us, playing well and in the best spirit.
This website keeps you informed of all our current activities but also tells our story over a century and in great detail since the millennium. Do browse through it at your leisure and if you like what you see and read, don't hesitate to join us as a player, umpire, scorer or supporter. Should you possess any Nomads historical material do let us know.
We have recently moved website platforms. The majority of what made up the former website has been transcribed to the new one but not all. The task will soon be completed.
