Sporting success, enjoyment & friendship

Welcome to Old Rutlishians Cricket Club a.k.a ‘Old Ruts’  which was founded in 1908 and has been the centre of cricket in the leafy suburb of Merton Park in Wimbledon for well over 100 years. We are immensly proud of our club – we regularly field five teams on a Saturday, two on a Sunday and our juniors section provides cricket for over 400 youngsters.

Our 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th XIs enjoy competing in the Surrey Championship on a Saturday and have experienced considerable success over the last 10 years. New members of any standard are always welcome, as are new social members who are encouraged to pop down at the weekend during the summer to watch some cricket. Enjoy browsing our website.

New Players of any Standard or experience welcome

Congratulations to Mike Jones as new 1st team and club captain as he takes over from Sonny Cooper's 3 years of service. Well done to Shane Murphy and Dinesh Thakore who retain the 3rd and 4th team captaincies. As for the 2s, we are waiting for a Keene to come out of retirement.

After our AGM last week we have some exciting news for the 2020 season. Richard Slatford is the new chairman after Lance Keene's 15 years effort.
Ollie Fox remains Club Secretary, Graeme Mills retains the Fixture Secretary role and John Holden takes over the treasury. Good luck!

Congratulations to our very own Ryan Patel who has scored yet another hundred out in Australia in the WACA Premier League. He finished with 115 after being involved in the University Cricket Club of WA's highest partnership for any wicket with a 255 run stand with Chris Sabburg.
