Sunday 18 July: Hambledon Cricket Club v Chiddingfold Cricket Club – the John Tidmarsh Cup

This Sunday sees the return of a traditional local cricket fixture at Hambledon with a game against Chiddingfold for the inaugural John Tidmarsh Cup.

He played cricket for the club from his teenage years until the age of 50. Hambledon CC President, Arthur Blackman, fondly remembers playing against John back in the day. 
Although covid restrictions must remain in place everyone is welcome to watch the game. Play starts at 2pm.
