County Cricket Ground, Beckenham

The Kent County Cricket Ground (previously known as the Lloyd's TSB Sports and Social Club Ground and also occasionally known as the New County Ground) is a cricket ground in Beckenham, England.

Although the ground was first used by the Kent 1st XI in 1954 – when it hosted a County Championship match against Gloucestershire – it has since only hosted one Championship match and two matches in what it is now known as the Pro40 League, and has mainly been used for Twenty20 matches. It is in this competition that the ground usually hosts two games per season. In 2008, the two Twenty20 opponents will be Middlesex for the fourth consecutive year and Essex.

The ground has played host to three first-class matches, four List A matches and 11 Twenty20 matches.

Famous quotes containing the words county and/or cricket:

    But I would say to my fellows, once for all, As long as possible live free and uncommitted. It makes but little difference whether you are committed to a farm or the county jail.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The thing that struck me forcefully was the feeling of great age about the place. Standing on that old parade ground, which is now a cricket field, I could feel the dead generations crowding me. Here was the oldest settlement of freedmen in the Western world, no doubt. Men who had thrown off the bands of slavery by their own courage and ingenuity. The courage and daring of the Maroons strike like a purple beam across the history of Jamaica.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)
