About Costa Del Sol Cricket
The history of Cricket on the Costa del Sol began in the mid 80’s when an expat Brit
saw an advert for a touring team from East Anglia wanting to play some pre-season
games in warmer climates and the first game was held in March 1985 in Arroyo de la
Miel. Things have now developed where both Senior and Junior members are enjoying the beautiful game on a weekly basis at a privately owned, designated cricket ground
boasting two grass outfields.
Located just 20 minutes from Malaga airport this oasis of beauty is on the road out from
the village of Cártama heading west towards Coin. The ground is affectionately known
as the Cartama Oval and goes under the club name of Costa del Sol Cricket Club.
Teams that feature here locally are the Costa del Sol CC, Combined Colleges CC and
Malaga CC with newly formed sides Granada CC and Benalmadena CC fielding
players from as far as Seville, Nerja and Gibraltar for matches.
There are a variety of formats played from one day 40 over games to T20 tournaments,
plus touring sides come for weekends to test themselves against the local teams both
socially and ability-wise with cricket always the winner.
Junior cricket coaching sessions are also available with the help of level 2 & 3 coaches and some senior players, offering the chance for children aged 7-15 of all levels to take part, something originally started in 2018 by the England Cricket Team Psychologist David Young.
Anybody interested in enquiring about available dates for touring matches or coming
over for pre-season training, please fill out our contact page.
