Description

Located in the village of Percy Main, the ground is the permanent home of Percy Main Cricket Club and leased to the Sage Cricket Club for their midweek league fixtures and friendlies.

A club of high reputation in both the community and local cricket, Percy Main has an illustrious history boasting ex players such as Mike Brearley, and has encouraged several thousand people over the years to play cricket through their junior system.  The club, which has regularly competed at the highest level in club cricket, has a superb square (grass), which produces wickets with more consistent bounce and pace, than normally associated with the local area.  The outfield is immaculate, and playing here gives you a glimpse of standards at the highest of levels.  On a basic level, you feel like a cricketer when you play here.

The Sage teams in particular have been delighted at the welcome and support they receive from everyone at Percy Main.  From providing us with superb wickets, to the scheduling of winter nets, the management team at Percy Main have been extremely helpful.
