Tillington Cricket Club is a small club based in the splendid pavilion on the recreation ground adjacent to the Upperton Road.  The Club has enjoyed solid village support since its inception in 1785.  The ground probably has the best views of any pitch in the south of England and boasts having been used by the BBC for filming and the basis of a novel (The Cricket Match).  Cricket is played most Sunday afternoons from April to September and the Club is widely know for its friendliness and for the quality of the teas served from the pavilion by our wonderful tea ladies.

New members are always welcome, particularly younger player who wish to develop their cricket skills.  Spectators are also most welcome.

The Cricket Club also hold Easter and Christmas bingo in Tillington Village Hall to raise funds both for the Club and local charities.  All are welcome to these bi-annual bingo evenings.

For any enquiries, to request a fixture card or if you would like to get involved, please contact Dominic Graves or Laura Westmore.
The Tennis Club
The Tennis Club has two newly refurbished hard courts at the recreation ground on the Upperton Road.  Tillington Tennis Association has formed a tennis club with an annual membership fee which allows members access to the courts at anytime.  A 'Pay and Play' system is also in operation.  The Club has 64 members including family memberships, and organizes coaching (particularly for young people), tournaments and social tennis events.  Unfortunately the latter has not been very successful recently and a volunteer is now being sought to organize social tennis.  New members are very welcome
