Tunbridge Wells face rematch against Wimbledon in ECB Club Championship

Tunbridge Wells Cricket Club will face Wimbledon in Round 3 of the ECB National Club Championship on Sunday 23rd June, and they will be hoping for a better result after losing by three wickets to the same team in Round 1 of the competition last year.

The rematch will see Tunbridge Wells travel to The Wimbledon Club in Wimbledon Park once again, but this time it will be for a place in the National knockout stages, which are scheduled to begin in July.

In this years competition, Tunbridge Wells have already navigated their way past Whitstable with an eight wicket win, and fellow Kent Cricket League Premier Division side Sandwich with a nine wicket win, and they remain the only West Kent side still in the competition.

Tunbridge Wells’ captain Sam Smith, who was awarded the Kent Cricket League Player of the Season for 2023, has enjoyed his two stints at the wicket so far, recording 46* and 31* respectively.

The ECB National Club Championship competition has been running since 1969 and is a straight knockout competition with the final being played on Sunday 15th September 2024 at Worcestershire CCC.

Best of luck to the boys as they try to improve on last year’s result!

2023 Round 1 result: Wimbledon (167/7) beat Tunbridge Wells (166 all out) by 3 wickets.
