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 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 played more than 70 matches each year.

Covid-19. Club Cricket gets the go ahead from July 11th.

With great sadness the club reports the sudden death of Nomads member, Master scorer and Great cricket tourist Nigel Green, July 5th. On September 4th Katrina Barter lost her battle with Cancer. She had been a great Nomads tourist and wonderful wife of Simon Barter whom she met when Simon was on a Nomads tour in Spain.

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.

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.

The club colours are Dark Blue, Light Blue and Yellow. We have a Harlequinade design Cap and a classic woollen Sweater (Sleeveless & Long Sleeve).

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.
