Cricketing badgers, I need some help...

Having not played any cricket in three years I'm considering giving it another go next season. I'm based in Greenwich, South East London, so ideally would want somewhere fairly local, although would travel a little bit.

Any forumites part of any clubs around Greenwich or could recommend? Would want it to be a fairly decent level but not too serious.

Would Cudham be too far? Probably half an hour from Greenwich but a nice quiet setting and a good true pitch.

I think Cudham would be longer than that - plus if you fancied a beer after a game youd never get home.

Blackheath, Old Colfieans or Shootershillians?

Blackheath, Blackheath Wanderers, Old Colfeians (where I play occasionally), Crofton Cricket Club, Roan Cricket Club. The last four are all within a mile of each other  just down from Kidbrooke. There's also Catford Ciphers close by.

Plenty to choose from - Blackheath has six Saturday sides, Colfeians has three. I'm not sure about the others.

Kinda jumping in here.

Also moving, albeit to the Herne Hill area and thinking about a club. Probably in the lower depths of 5th/6th/7ths,ah. Suggestions? I'm 10 minutes away from Dulwich, but I think there's one or two more dotted around the area

Streatham and Marlborough and Blackheath based on number of teams available. Might be other clubs with 5,6,7 teams but those are the 2 which immediately jump out for me.
