Firle Cricket Club
Firle Cricket Club was founded in 1758 and is quite probably among the ten oldest clubs in the world. For centuries, Firle Cricket Club has been at the heart of village life. On 15th July 1725, the Duke of Richmond challenged Sir William Hall Gage to a match on the same pitch at Firle Place where the club still plays today.
