Buckinghamshire County Cricket Club is one of the county clubs which make up the Minor Counties in the English domestic cricket structure, representing the historic county of Buckinghamshire and playing in the Minor Counties Championship and the MCCA Knockout Trophy. The Minor Counties play three-day matches at a level below that of the first-class game. At present, Buckinghamshire competes in the Eastern Division of the Minor Counties Championship.
The club has its administrative headquarters at Little Chalfont and plays its matches around the county at various locations. Until 1979 it played regularly at Ascott Park, the home of the Rothschild family which was prominent in the club's foundation.

Famous quotes containing the words club, cricket and/or county:
“The barriers of conventionality have been raised so high, and so strangely cemented by long existence, that the only hope of overthrowing them exists in the union of numbers linked together by common opinion and effort ... the united watchword of thousands would strike at the foundation of the false system and annihilate it.”
—Mme. Ellen Louise Demorest 18241898, U.S. womens magazine editor and womans club movement pioneer. Demorests Illustrated Monthly and Mirror of Fashions, p. 203 (January 1870)
“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 (18911960)
“Hold hard, my county darlings, for a hawk descends,
Golden Glamorgan straightens, to the falling birds.
Your sport is summer as the spring runs angrily.”
—Dylan Thomas (19141953)
