NOMADS  CRICKET  CLUB 
  Founded 1903

Nomads Cricket Club was founded on the border of Hampstead and St John’s Wood, London in 1903  as Hampstead Nomads.The name Hampstead was dropped in 1922. Always a wandering club Nomads continues to play a full season of matches in UK on Sundays and Bank Holidays, some Saturdays and a great many mid weekdays every UK Cricket season. Nomads make regular tours in UK, Europe and Worldwide. We arrange around a 100 matches each season. The weather inevitably disrupts our schedule but since 2015 we usually play more than 70 matches each year.Covid has restricted that 2021 & 2022.

Nomads have played 31 matches June 27th. Monday Oratory School.Next Sunday Hampshire Hogs CC

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. When you play for Nomads 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 and other get togethers.

The club welcomes cricketers from all over the world to join us, playing well and in the best spirit. We are a sociable,friendly and inclusive cricket club that plays competitive cricket but not competition cricket.

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.

RIP  Tony Lycett has passed away. He was a fine Wicket Keeper/Batsman (and  probably better Hockey player in his prime). He played a fair bit for  Nomads several decades ago as well as Cryptics and Weyfarers among  others.
