Woodhouse Grange has come a very long way since it was established in 1942, in the middle of World War Two, as a recreational cricket club for local farmworkers.
Widely recognised as one of the best cricket clubs in the York region, above all else Woodhouse Grange it is a family friendly club that welcomes players of all ages and all abilities.
Although an amateur club we run on a very professional basis with an executive committee and various sub-committees, including commercial, cricket, and grounds committees.
We run a total of 12 different teams, so can cater for players of all abilities and ages:
- Four Saturday teams including our 1st XI which plays in Yorkshire Premier League North – an ECB Premier League, the highest standard of cricket outside the professional game.
- Five junior teams covering under 9s, 11s, 13s, 15s and 18s.
- Two evening league teams
- Our Grey Fox XI - for the over 50s.
We have two excellent pitches, good practice facilities, a welcoming clubhouse, and a fine reputation for great cricket teas! Whilst the players are our most important members, there is a whole range of dedicated non-playing members involved in the club including groundsmen, bar staff, umpires, scorers, and especially our acclaimed tea ladies.

One of the fundamental reasons for Woodhouse Grange’s continuing success is the number of non-playing volunteers involved at the club.
