Details

Home of Chesterfield Cricket Club and venue for their home matches. The Ground has also hosted Derbyshire County Cricket Club and the first County match held here was in 1898.

In 1904, the famous cricketer WG Grace played at Queen’s Park in a match between Derbyshire and London County, and Don Bradman, the man many consider to have been the best batsman of all time, played here when the Australians toured England in the 1930s. John Hampshire, a former test batsman, called Queen’s Park the loveliest ground in the country.

Derbyshire County Cricket Club still pay in Queen’s Park in the Chesterfield Cricket Festival in July.
