The Forty Club is reputed to be the largest wandering cricket Club in the world. As a wandering or nomadic Club it does not own its own ground. The aim of the Club since 1936 has been ‘to take cricket to the schools’ by offering schools and Youth XIs fixtures against experienced cricketers who will encourage the young cricketers to play the game to the highest standards of performance and behaviour and in the best spirit of the game. The Forty Club currently plays some 130 fixtures a season against School and Youth sides throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
