Welcome to St Anne’s Allstars. We are a social cricket team based in London, with the emphasis on social!
Originating at St Anne’s College, Oxford, in the mid-nineties, we were formed as a properly organised team in 2001 by our founder and inspiration, Maxie Allen. Starting out as a collection of college, work and house mates based in south-west London, we have grown over the years while never losing sight of our roots and that we play cricket for fun.
We play a regular 14-16 games a season against other social cricket teams like ourselves, at some beautiful grounds across the south-east of England. Our matches are played in a relaxed environment with some lively banter, some fantastic teas and beers after (or occasionally during) the game. As for the result … we don’t worry too much about that.
Our love of cricket has also taken us further afield. Our tours have become legendary, taking us to grounds in the sunshine of Ibiza, Corfu, Benidorm, Porto, the Dordogne and even the unlikely cricketing hotbed of Slovenia. We revived this great tradition in 2019 with a cracking tour to Portugal. We have also enjoyed domestic tours to pretty rural venues in Cornwall, Northumberland and Hampshire.
Our annual Allstars Festival brings together the whole Allstars squad for a friendly game against one another, with families and friends joining us for the day.
We’re also a social club outside of the cricket. Over the years, our social events have included ten pin bowling, quiz nights, poker nights and days at the races, not forgetting our Mystery Tour weekends. Our season finishes with our annual dinner in central London, joined by our other halves.
We are always looking for new players who’d like to join us – ability is less important than enthusiasm and a love for the game. Even if you’ve not picked up a bat or ball for years, you’ll be made very welcome and will soon feel part of our team spirit. If you love cricket and like the sound of us, please get in touch using the “Play For Us” tab.
