Sprowston Cricket Club was originally formed in 1886 and for many years played its cricket on the local Parish Council ground. However in 1989 it acquired its own ground at Barkers Lane. The ground has been developed since then into one of the best in Norfolk with two squares containing 18 cricket strips, a separate all weather pitch and a double practice net.
The Club fields four teams on Saturdays, two in the Norfolk Cricket Alliance and, two in the Norfolk Cricket League.
On Sundays we compete in the Carter Cup competition and play friendly matches.
During midweek we field a team in the Norfolk Cricket Board Over 40's competition in addition to hosting touring cricket clubs.
The Club’s youth section is strong, fielding teams in U19, U15, U13, and U11 teams in the Norfolk Alliance and/or Broadland competition. Being a family club we like to start our players young and have active under 9 coaching sessions playing Kwik Cricket.

The Club is active all year round hosting Norwich Union Rugby Club and 3 youth football clubs playing small game football.
