Cricket is one of London’s most popular sports and Newham is a fantastic borough to play the sport. This north-east part of London is home to lots of cricket facilities that tend to be the grass surface. Two of the most popular cricket venues in the borough are Cumberland School and Flanders Playing Field. Some of the facilities have put in astroturf wickets to allow play to continue if the weather turns a touch for the worse. Cricket nets are available for players wanting to work on their batting or bowling before a big match or after the winter break.
