NOMADS CRICKET CLUB
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 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 have more than 70 matches each year.
Covid-19. Nomads CC has had four tours already cancelled and anticipates further disruption to the scheduled programme . As a responsible sports entity we will comply with Government & ECB advice with respect to the upcoming season. ECB Coronavirus Statement.
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.
The club welcomes cricketers from all over the world to join us, playing well and in the best spirit.

OFFICERS OF THE CLUB
Nomads planned to begin 2020 with five tours to Continental Europe (Switzerland,Mainland Spain, Rome Italy, Menorca & Portugal) but Coronavirus has scuppered that. We also planned to begin the UK season on Good Friday April 10th but that is also cancelled now. Hopefully we will be playing by July. We have two more Continental tours to France and Spain later on and we should complete the UK season on October 4th. If the weather allows and grounds are available we will try to add some more late fixtures.
In addition to Sunday and several Saturday matches we play a great many midweek matches. We welcome new players, young and old, for these games. Have a look at the Fixtures List 2020… Players(current and new) should contact Match Managers early to secure selection.
