Its history and connections with Warwickshire CCC can be seen by following the link to the Knowle and Dorridge CC Website but at present, it runs 4 teams on Saturdays and 1 team on Sundays and has one of the strongest Junior sections in the area.

The 1st and 2nd XI’s play in their respective premier divisions of the Birmingham & District Premier Cricket League – one of the strongest Leagues in the country – whilst the 3rd and 4th XI team’s play in Division 3 and 6 in the Warwickshire Cricket League against other club 1st and 2nd teams.

On Sundays the 1st XI’s play in the Arden Cricket Sunday League Premier Blue.

In 2005 the amalgamation of two clubs – Knowle & Dorridge CC and Arden Forest CC was completed to enable the club to utilise more fully the facilities at its second ground at Lugtrout Lane.

Knowle & Dorridge CC offer a thriving junior section for boys and girls of all cricketing abilities aged between 5 - 19. 

The clubs philosophy is focused on producing junior cricketers to play in senior teams. We boast a number of district, county and even an England U19s international in our ranks.

The Club Colours are Green and Gold and the club emblem is the Bear and Ragged Staff.

The club is situated between the ‘villages’ of Knowle and Dorridge on Station Road, Dorridge, Solihull, West Midlands, and the second ground is situated on Lugtrout Lane, Solihull.

Apart from its playing strength and cricket tradition, Knowle and Dorridge CC boasts a strong social membership. The Club is open every evening of the year (except Christmas Day!) and on Saturday and Sunday afternoons – throughout the winter as well as the summer,and anyone who visits will be ensured of a warm and friendly welcome.
