Kew Cricket Club was formed in 1882 following the amalgamation of two local clubs, Kew Oxford and Kew Cambridge. However cricket had been played on the green for many years prior to 1882. Evidence supporting this is contained in a report printed in The London Post dated July 16th 1737, which refers to a match between a Prince of Wales XI and The Duke of Marlborough XI.
