Glamorgan County Cricket Club in Cardiff

If you’re looking for some great cricket action during your stay in Cardiff then you’re in luck because the city is home to the renowned Glamorgan County Cricket Club [map] .

The club plays at the beautiful Sophia Gardens, which is set on the banks of the River Taff with lots of trees and parkland around so whether there is cricket on or not, you can enjoy a day's sunbathing when the weather is right.

Glamorgan have won the County Championship three times, in 1948, 1969 and most recently in 1997, as well as being crowned One-day League Champions in 1993 and 2002.

Each season they are generally somewhere near the top of the championship so you can expect to see some first class cricket against the likes of Derbyshire, Hampshire and Leicestershire.

The team also plays in the National Cricket League against clubs such as Surrey, Kent and Lancashire, as well as participating in the Twenty20 Cup.

If you would rather spend a sunny Sunday playing cricket then there are plenty of venues around Cardiff just for you. There are more than 40 outdoor leisure locations across the city including 17 cricket pitches, which you will need to book in advance through Cardiff County Council.

For those who just want to practice their batting and bowling with the family, you can make use of the many scenic parks around the capital, including Roath Park and Cathays Park.
