I play for Putney CC - here's a drone video of our ground https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2UhzGQUV88

My old club Panteg CC had a much nicer ground but was less well run. Putney is brilliantly run (by the members, for the members) which makes up for the less luxurious surroundings ;)

Nice one with the music Rich, lovely. The season is nearly here! Bit of a greentop over in Putney then? I used to live and play in Chiswick, for Turnham Green as was, now Chiswick CC.

Yeah we play on common land so theres a limit to what we can do with the ground. It tends to favour the seamers...

Lovely! I could easily imagine enjoying a G&T or 3 at the boundary rope.

Chiswick are in our division , or were I think they got relegated last year to div 2, I've played at your old ground for many years. Knew most of the Turnham Green old team. John Brown used to play there,older now of course but sharp in his heyday.so I'm told, only didn't make it to the first team (he played windies A I believe) because  he did not like the dicipline involved.

The ground is undergoing some improvements with new changing rooms and a new bar area.looks a lot better than it did back in the day.

Ansty CC, clip is a promo video for the women's team.

Thanks for that @mohawks94 , a very inspiring video! Definitely deserves a wider audience. Nice to see such a well used square too, you must have a team working tremendously hard on that. Chapeau!

Thanks @ppccopener . John Brown, there's a blast from the past! Rapid. Properly rapid in his day, but yeah, a little wayward off the field from time to time. The club is now chaired by an old mate of mine, Bernard Hughes, who has worked extremely hard with his Committee in recent years and has made huge improvements. TGCC merged with Polytechnic from up the road, they became Chiswick CC and then actually took over the lease on the ground and clubhouse (The old Fullers Brewery ground). They put out 4 sides some days, which is amazing. Show's what a group of dedicated people can achieve.

I think Dave won Sussex groundsman of the year. He's also women's head coach/manager, does both the squares at Ansty.

Kidmore End CC TVL 2, closest thing to a county ground you'll find IMO, glass outfield and a square like the M25. Batters paradise.

When I visit England, can I play with your club? :)

No, because you seem a bit of a misery and like to complain a lot - you would taint the ceaseless happy vibes of my team.

Always enjoyed playing at Kidmore - many many moons ago - i presume the Sheldon's are still doing the ground?
