Welcome to Alton Victorian Cricket

Established in 1982, The Alton Victorian Cricket Tournament (originally the Old Fashioned Cricket Tournament) began as a one day September challenge match between two of Alton’s most historic public houses, The Eight Bells and The French Horn. The event today is a tournament featuring nine teams of nine players, all of whom wear approximations of 19th century Victorian dress. The game between the two pubs, instituted by Alan Moxley (The Eight Bells) and Rod Ryan (The French Horn), survived most of the eighties and after a short gap, was resumed in 1991.

The aim of the day is fun for all the family, players and spectators, with an overall charitable intention. The beneficiaries for many years were Bushy Leaze and teams contested strongly (and mainly sportingly) for the ‘Bushy Leaze trophy.

In later years, the two originating teams were joined by other teams to form the present day mini league tournament. The teams proposed a charitable cause they wish to support and that became the supported charity for that year. The organising committee now follow a rigorous process for selecting a (local)
Charity each year. The tournament is now held annually on the last Sunday in June.
