Cricket club[edit | edit source]
Alvanley Cricket Club, established in 1884, runs five senior teams and four junior teams ranging from under-9s to under-18s. The club came fifth in Division One of the Cheshire County League in 2000, but a fallow period saw them fall back down to the Meller Braggins League. In 2011 the club won the League unbeaten with a record 461 points and in doing so found their way back into the County league for 2012. The Junior Section has in recent years begun to challenge for County Cups, without yet actually lifting one. 2008 to 2011 saw a period of investment in the club's infrastructure, rewarded by the award of prestigious games such as the Bunbury Festival and Cheshire County fixtures.
