Bramble Cricket Match

We’re pleased to confirm the annual Bramble Cricket Match will take place on Monday 12 September this year.

Each year, the Island Sailing Club meets members of the Royal Southern Yacht Club for a ‘quintessentially English’ match of cricket on the Brambles Sandbar in the Solent. Believed to have started in the 1950s, this strange – but fabulous – tradition sees the two clubs play against each other until play is stopped by waves.

Adding an extra spin to proceedings, the match winner is always decided ahead of time, with teams taking alternate turns at winning. This year, it’s the Club’s turn after Royal Southern’s team won last year.

Vice Commodore and team Captain Tim Devlin said, “The Bramble Cricket Match is a wonderful tradition that both clubs look forward to and thoroughly enjoying taking part in.”
