Remnants Cricket Club

Remnants is a Cambridge-based cricket club that has played over a thousand matches since it was formed by Geoff Hales in 1980. Sadly, Geoff died in March 2020 and Covid prevented a proper celebration of his contribution to the club (and to cricket and Cambridge more generally), but the highlight of the 2022 season will hopefully be the Geoff Hales Memorial Match to be held at Fenner's on Sunday, August 14.

The club has a loose connection to Cambridge University's physics and astronomy departments - the name is a quiet pun on "supernova remnant", the shell of gas left behind after a large star explodes - but has evolved to a point where its membership is reasonably representative of the town as a whole. During the summer months we have one or two friendly matches a week against pub teams, colleges, nearby villages, workplaces and the like; we also play the occasional afternoon weekend game. Players of all standards are welcome, and anyone interested in joining should contact the club secretary.
