As a Club we have over 20 years of tours abroad

Apart from our forced COVID brake we try to tour abroad every summer, starting from 1988. We ofter go to the United Kingdom, mainly playing in the London area, but have also toured several other European Countries.

Here are a few articles and tour diaries about their Rome tours (Plenty more will be added!)


The Authors in Rome

Our first game was against Capannelle CC, the champions of Italy, at their ground off the Appian Way. The night before we were invited to drinks at their clubhouse... the setting was a special one. We could see the Alban Hills, where Alba Longa, the ancestral home of the Romans, once stood, and where the Pope has his summer residence. Afterwards, we went straight from pitch to palazzo, for the first of several incredible receptions.


The MCC crosses the Rubicon to challenge Rome

The trip took us past the famous Roman catacombs, along the Appian Way towards the racetrack in Capanelle. There was an incredible amount of Wisteria to admire – it seems to grow wild and in great profusion here, rather like the Buddlia in England- as well as the spectacular Stone Pines which are almost a trademark for Rome.


The First Tour to Rome – 1987

And so it came to pass that a dozen intrepid cricketers*, with support from several wives, arrived in Rome late on 30th September, ready for a relaxing two-header and some “dolce vita”.
