Cricket week was founded in 1920 by OJ’s returning from the horrors WW1 who wanted to bring together former school mates for fellowship and to celebrate the English summer at Hurst.
Our cricket week has gone on uninterrupted from this time and today welcomes back OJ’s and their families and is annually the largest supported single event in our calendar. Other schools started cricket weeks but many of these have withered over time our great success at Hurst is that we have been a family friendly week. To have achieved the milestone of a centenary is a remarkable achievement and the OJ club owes a great deal to successive Headmasters for making it possible and 4 remarkable cricket week managers.
It is fitting that the home of cricket should welcome our celebration of the centenary of cricket week. Space is already at a premium and OJ’s wishing to attend are urged to book without delay.
