Cricket at Lancing dates back to 1857, where the earliest team was captained by G Woodard, the son of Lancing’s founder Nathaniel Woodard. Cricket has since become one of the most popular and successful sports at the College.
Lancing has always had a reputation for cricket and our current pupils are certainly living up to it. We offer cricket as a main sport choice to both boys and girls in the Summer Term, and are proud to have very successful boys' and girls’ cricket teams, as well as a mixed 1st XI.
Our Cricket department is run by Mr Rajesh Maru, an ex-professional player who has represented Hampshire and Middlesex.
In recent years, groups of Lancing cricketers have been lucky enough to tour to South Africa, playing against local teams and receiving specialist training, as well as going on safari and seeing the stunning scenery.
