Royal Grammar Schools' Cricket Festival 2023
The Royal Grammar Schools’ Cricket Festival is an annual competition. Each year one of the six schools involved host the event and this year it’s the turn of Colchester Royal Grammar School.
We look forward to welcoming the 1st XI cricket teams from the Royal Grammar Schools of Guildford, Lancaster, Newcastle, Worcester and High Wycombe for a week-long celebration of cricket for the Royal Grammar Schools’ Cricket Festival from 3-7 July.
The inter-schools matches are daily and hosted on CRGS pitches as well as the local club grounds: Maldon CC, Abberton & District CC, Mistley CC and at Eight Ash Green CC. We are hugely grateful for their support.
We look forward to welcoming the teams and staff.
