history



Cricket is first recorded as being played in Spain in the year 1809 by soldiers of General Lord Wellesley (later the Duke of Wellington). It was during the Peninsular war that the soldiers played the game in and around Ciudad Rodrigo, Lugo and Orense. From that date there are many recordings of the game being played by visiting British land and sea forces, either between themselves or against local British expatriate communities.

However, the game really started a new era in Spain with the founding of Madrid Cricket Club in 1975.

Sporting Alfas Cricket Club

was founded in 1995 in co-operation with the local Town Hall and playing on a golf driving range provided by the Town Hall. Founder members were Andrew Bond, Pamela Dawson Tasker and Clive Woodbridge.
