Octopus CC has a history stretching back to 1947. The recent past has seen our tentacles spread from the heartlands of Enfield to Alexandra Palace where our vibrant (hungover), multinational collective, spend summer Sundays laughing at each other, lavishing extras onto the opposition total, avoiding tea duty and battling to avoid the dreaded duck trophy.
Although a competitive bunch, the end of season highlights seldom feature totting up the ton count and 5 wicket hauls (although it does happen); memorable teas, comedy run outs tend to stick in the collective conscience longer. A sense of humour and standing your round are seen as a greater virtue than a high elbowed cover drive, although the holy trinity is always sought.
We are always looking for new players
